Florence is famous for its history, a centre of medieval European trade and finance and one of the wealthiest cities of the time. The entire historic centre of Florence has been declared a World Heritage Site! The view from Giotto's Bell Tower with The Duomo on the foreground, backed with a sea of orange roof tiles, simply took our breath away!(together with the 414 steps to the top of Giotto's Bell Tower!). It's officially one of my favourite cities in Italy :)
Central Florence isn't huge, we did not travel too far out except going to - The Mall. We travelled by foot within central Florence and with the attractions and shops, it easily took us 3 full days to cover them!

Busy train station. We came by train from Venice.
The most iconic structure in Florence. Vecchio Bridge.
