Jewel of the Renaissance, Florence is a real outdoor museum, not to mention the artistic wonders that countless palaces and museums conceal behind their walls. Run through streets which have not changed for centuries, from the reign of the Medici dynasty, who was surrounded by the most talented artists of the time, and gave this town its cultural, economic and political influence, to make it a powerful and world famous city in the heart of the Tuscan countryside. From the majestic Duomo to Ponte Vecchio, through the hills of Oltrarno to Santa Croce, you will run an incredible journey in time.
