Florance is located in central Italy on the Arno River. Florence along with the Tuscany region is home to one of the highest concentration of UNESCO World Heritage Sites.

If you ask me what me to name my favorite destination in Italy, I’d easily tell you it’s Florence! This city in Northern Italy is famous for being the birthplace of the Renaissance and one of the most beautiful historical centers in Europe. It is rich in old architecture, history, and art — among them Michelangelo’s David and Botticelli’s Birth of Venus.
Florence is well-worth visiting on its own but what made me put it at the top of my bucketlist in Italy was its position as an excellent base to explore other travel goals nearby including the iconic Leaning Tower of Pisa; wineries and well-preserved medieval towns in Tuscany; and the colorful seaside villages of Cinque Terre.

The best way to travel to Florence is by air or train. Fly to Florence Airport or Pisa International Airport, which is 100 kilometres (62 miles) west of Florence.
