Attracting more than 10 million tourists per year, Florence is one of the most-popular tourist destinations in Italy. Although smaller than Rome, Florence has approximately one-third of the world art-works, according to UNESCO’s accolade. Its most-famous Uffizi Gallery – a museum initially built in XVI cent under the request of the Medici family — flaunts the largest Renaissance art collection exposed worldwide.
Well known to be home to artists and the most fabulous inventors such as Leonardo Da Vinci, Michelangelo, Botticelli, Giotto, and Brunelleschi, and Dante; Florence is also the hometown of the Duomo and the Battistero! The construction lasted approximately 140 years, and the cupola with its 463 steps made out of stone will leave you with a superb close-up of the Last Judgement, and an unmatched view on the ancient town and its paramount architecture.
