Florence, or Firenze in Italian, is the home of the Renaissance. This small city in Tuscany is packed with amazing architectural gems and wonderful art and is home to some of the best fountains in Italy. The narrow cobbled streets have remained unchanged for centuries, while the palaces, dating from the 15th and 16th centuries offer a beautiful view of the past.
