Full of beautiful, Renaissance-style buildings, including wonderful churches and enormous palaces, Florence is steeped in culture and atmosphere, and has not changed greatly since the 16th century The city centre of Florence is quite compact, with many of its chief attractions being consolidated in a few areas, resulting in the main highlights being accessible by foot.
