Close up, however, Florence is one of Italy's most atmospheric and pleasant, retaining a strong resemblance to the small late-medieval centre that contributed so much to the cultural and political development of Europe.
It was here that artists such as Michelangelo and Leonardo da Vinci lived and worked, as did poets such as Dante and Boccaccio.
As a cultural heritage from these times, Florence possesses a wealth of monuments and works of art, which make every stay in the city an unforgettable experience.
Florence is not just a beautiful city full of art, history and culture, but is also one of the most important business centres of Italy where many small and medium enterprises, as well as large multinational corporations, produce advanced products from fashion to handicrafts, from machinery to high technology.
The Chianti area, between Florence and Siena, is one of the most beautiful countrysides in Italy and a famous wine production area.

When to go

Early winter, in December, can also be surprisingly pleasant, with crisp air and sunny days and far, far fewer people clogging up the piazzas.
