Florence reveals itself for tourist as a journey to the past and a pretty strong reason to enrich their general knowledge on history and culture, everything placed in a romantic, pure latin atmosphere. This is the town you won’t get bored regardless the period of the year you have chosen to see it. Whether the sun or the moon is up, streets are almost always filled with people of all ages, restaurants are open until late and clubs are the best choice for those willing to spend the night out.
For those loving shopping, there’s an exclusive area in Florence for such activities: Ponte Vecchio. A travel attraction in its own rights, this bridge connects the shores of Arno river, the only notable watercourse to cross the city. Looking at the old bridge you get this strange feeling that the stores are simply hanging at the base of the bridge. The truth is… boutiques are hosting treasures that will delight any shopping-passionate, from antiques to souvenirs and silver items. Ponte Vecchio isn’t though the most expensive quarter in Florence – the exclusive stores are located along Via dei Tornabuoni.
