The city of Florence is divided by the Arno River. Visit tourist attractions on both the north and the south sides of the river.
There is no shortage of gorgeous vistas from atop the bell tower of Il Duomo di Firenze.
Beat the crowds and purchase your tickets online to view Michaelangelo’s David at the Accademia Gallery. You’ve got great abs, David.
I fell in love with the detail of the sculptures at the Bargello National Museum.
For something a bit more off the beaten path outside Florence, consider a drive to the Tuscan countryside for a cooking class at the Good Taste of Tuscany.
