Firenze (Florence) and its Renaissance beauty has charmed travelers since its beginnings. It’s no different these days, all year round. The cathedrals and chapels full of masters’ art, museums, palaces, art galleries, fashion, the famous Tuscan cuisine with its wines, its elegant piazzas and streets. Visiting Firenze in winter time, just before the holiday crowds are starting to arrive, is to me, one of the best moments to enjoy this wonderful city to the fullest. Or then again, after the holidays, when the streets are emptier again and seem to belong to you.
