Florence is considered the birthplace of the Renaissance, a city that played a large part in bringing the world from the Middle Ages to modernity, and that heritage is still evident today. Visit the Uffizi Gallery, the city’s most famous art museum, and see the massive collection of historic armor at the Stibbert Museum. Snap photos of the city’s most recognizable sights like Florence Cathedral with its iconic bell tower and the Palazzo Vecchio, a former palace and Florence’s current town hall.

Make an appointment to wander the secret hallways of the Vasari Corridor, a 16th-century private walkway that was built for the powerful Medici family so that they travel through Florence with ease. Here, you’ll see a private collection of self-portraits and get the Medici’s own private view of the Santa Felicita church. Back on the streets with the common folk, be sure to find a street vendor and savor a lampredetto sandwich. Made from the fourth stomach of a cow cooked in broth with herbs and tomatoes and covered in your choice of sauce, it’s a staple of Florentine cuisine.
