Vacation in Florence Italy

Florence, Italy is located in the region of Tuscany and is known as the cradle of the Renaissance.  Quite possibly the most famous city in the world for art, where art began, and the museums that house such wonderful original artwork.  The beautiful detailed architecture of the churches, palaces and museums is just as popular as the artwork in the museums themselves.  Florence is truly one of the most beautiful cities in the world!

If you are considering traveling to Italy, consider visiting Florence!  Visit the Cathedral, the Accademia, and the library of San Lorenzo where Michelangelo's artwork can be found in a magnificent gallery exhibition.  Take a nice stroll through the city, along the Arno River.  Sip some vino and take in the Italian cuisine that people rave about.  You could truly lose track of time in a place like this!

If you are looking for some accommodations for your travels, consider a Florence vacation rental property!  As we all know, wonderful cities like Florence are tight on space, and hotels are even tighter!  Stretch out and relax after your adventures in one of these wonderful Florence vacation rentals.
