Florence is a province in the northern Italian region of Tuscany. The province has become world famous mainly due to its capital city of Florence, considered to be the birthplace of the Renaissance and a cradle of art and architecture. The numerous historical monuments in Florence will satisfy the history buff in all of us, and the sheer beauty of some of the buildings and churches will make the trip to this cultural haven memorable for even the less history-oriented of travelers. Hit the historical center of the city, considered a UNESCO World Heritage Site, to catch a glimpse of famous Florence attractions. You should stop by the Galleria degli Uffizi, one of the most world-renowned art galleries and the Cathedral, one of the most famous works of religious architecture in the world. If you get tired of the Florence sights, head out to the countryside surrounding the city to immerse yourself in the vineyards and wine houses that produce the area’s renowned Chianti wine.
