The Arno


Florence is a city-sized shrine to the Renaissance and the magnificent capital of the region of Tuscany. It is a preeminent city of art and architecture ​and a dynamic cosmopolitan city. The city’s large palaces are made of local stone, and reflect fragile colors, best seen at dawn and dusk.

According to statistics produced by UNESCO (the United Nation’s cultural branch), 60% of the world’s most important works of art are located in Italy and approximately half of these are in Florence!​ Here you will find the most-visited gardens in all of Italy, the BEST gelato parlor and breathtakingly gorgeous and relaxing evening strolls (pass​eg​giat​e​) along the Arno River, (timeless views that have barely changed in 700 years). If fashion is your passion, know that Gucci was born here, and designer Roberto Cavalli wisely spends considerable time in the wine country and hills surrounding ​Florence.​

The city is a foodies dream with choices ranging from historic cafes to​ ​sophisticated cutting-edge ristorant​i.​

Florence is unique, seductive and bustling all at once; yet incredibly its smaller piazzas and neighborhoods can provide the calm and subtlety more reminiscent of a small town.

It is no accident Forbes routinely acknowledges Florence is one of the most beautiful cities in the entire world.
