Florence

Our scrapbook notes about Florence

Florence is situated in Northern Italy and due to it's accessible location and vast amounts of culture, it has turned into a backpacker hotspot. The city is expansive with the wide range of art galleries, museums and churches but there are off-peak times which allow a few pennies to be saved. Overall, Florence is what you expect from an Italian city, with its cobbled streets, big squares and little cafes filled with stone baked pizzas and gelato. Be sure to check out the Statue of David and the Duomo, and to stroll the streets seeing the many 'authentic' Gucci and Prada bags lining the pavements.
