Florence has long since been considered the birthplace of the Renaissance, and its cultural growth has never slowed down. For Florence's artistic and architectural importance Forbes ranked the city as one of the most beautiful in the world.
Consider a trip to the Uffizi Gallery or the Pitti Palace. Look down on the Arno river from the historic Ponte Vecchio. The "Old Bridge" is lined with shops, formerly butchers as once was common, but now with jewelers and art dealers.
Florence's beauty lies not only in its buildings, however; Florence is still considered to be one of the fashion capitals of the world.
Visit Florence to see with your own eyes some of the most beautiful sights in the world, then bring some of that beauty back with you via the offerings of such luxury boutiques as Armani and Bulgari.
Beside being stunning and packed with museums and beautiful landmarks, Florence also offers you a very central starting point to reach Italy’s most popular tourist destinations. Within less than two hours you can reach Rome, Venice or Milan so that your SWISS flight from Newark to Florence is most suitable to be the beginning of a road trip through Italy.
