Are you an art lover? Or even an artist? Well you've come to the right place. Florence is the art capital of the world, and is known
as the capital of Tuscany. Founded by Julius Caesar in 59bc, Florence is known to be one of the most important cities in the world and
the 'Jewel of the Renaissance', with it being home to many great artist such as Michelanglo, Leonardo da Vinci, Donatello and Roberto
Cavalli to name a few.
With the river Arno flowing right through the centre of the city, you can hop on a little boat travel through the city and you can see
many of the amazing art galleries in including the spectacular Uffizi gallery which is one of the finest art museums in the world.
If you manage to run out of things to do in Florence which is impossible considering the amount of art galleries and museums and
amount of fashion designers have their headquarters shops situated here including Prada, Gucci, Ferragamo and many others to name a few
so you can always get stuck into a bit of retail therapy which always helps from time to time. You can always pop down to the Chianti area where the famous Chianti wine is created. With a privately owned villa in the Chianti area you can always do a bit of wine tasting throughout the year. Or you could try Caprese Michelangelo, where there are many other self catering apartments, and is also the birth place of one of the greatest artists of all time - Michelangelo, so you're bound to find many old historic artefacts.
Florence isn't a a city of rest but a city of fun, excitement and lots to do. With many markets all over the city it's always worth picking up some foods taking them back to your self catering apartment and having a nice relaxing night in after a nice busy day of exploring one of the most amazing cities in the world.
