DAY 2-3 FLORENCE
In the middle of Italy, we found one of the most visited city in Europe. Each year almost 15.000 of visitors came to the Tuscany capital to admire this beautiful city. I personally love Florence for its gastronomy and cultural heritage. Hometown of Dante Alighieri, Brunelleschi, Leonardo da Vinci, Galileo Galilei, and many others, which make this city the heart of discoveries and arts. Book here the Free walking tour of Florence.
