If you want to visit a place with good food around every corner and history on every street then visit Florence. The city is magic. Full of music and more stories than you can believe.
One magical place that unfortunately did not get its own post is the Galleria degli Uffizi. This ‘U’ shaped building was constructed on the orders of Cosimo I de’ Medici of Florence. The art pieces inside are fantastic. When you go, buy your tickets in advance and go early. When my friends and I visited it was late in the afternoon and sometimes we could only catch glimpses of famous works due to the press of people. It did not get its own post because I have no pictures from my visit. You can see at least one work here, if you are curious.
