A trip to Italy without going to Florence is like taking a cruise on a docked ship. Florence is so much more than a destination, it is an experience. One small city packed with the flavor of Italy.
Florence is the capital to one of the most breathtaking regions in Italy, the region of Tuscany. It is no secret that the city is the birthplace of the Renaissance connecting all prominent writers, poets, artists, musicians of the Golden Age. Visiting is like walking into a time capsule. The cobble-stone streets hide small studios and boutiques filled with artisans creating masterpieces to this day. Leather goods, sculptures, clothes, paintings, and of course scrumptious masterpieces in the kitchen. Who can resist authentic Italian food? Forget about the typical pastas and pizzas. Florence is about the steak! You must try the amazing local dish “bistecca alla fiorentina”, perhaps the best steak you will ever have.
If you want to integrate your travel, Florence is the perfect base city to visiting the Tuscan countryside and the amazing Italian Riviera of Cinque Terre. Shefaris in Florence will take you on a trip that propel you into the past on an exuberant roller coaster ride to the heart of history.
Enjoy the beauty, the art, the architecture, the Florentine way of life, in the living beating heart of Italy.
