Florence – Essentials

Being the birthplace of the Italian Renaissance has its advantages – namely an abundance of art and effects of historical significance for the city. Most of the major sight-seeing locations are walking distance from each other and a variety of means of transportation are available for visitors including bicycles, motorbikes, busses, taxis and trams. As with any large city, visitors should take precautions when in large crowds and should pay attention to their personal belongings.
