Florence is home to countless churches and museums, enough to make one’s head spin in trying to figure out where to begin. It doesn’t matter when you start, just pick a place and run with it.
From an architectural standpoint, the birthplace of the Renaissance is home to an endless number of splendid structures. Every corner offers another building that baffles the imagination and leaves travelers awestruck. How is it people live in the city such as this and not walk around every day marveling at the buildings that rise above?
Perhaps it was Charles Dickens who said it best when he said: “Let us look back on Florence while we may, and when its shining Dome is seen no more, go travelling through cheerful Tuscany, with a bright remembrance of it; for Italy will be the fairer for the recollection.”
