Favourite Places for Walking – Florence, italy

Some Italian cities are clogged with cars, but, in others, four-wheeled vehicles are delightfully absent from the narrow cobblestone streets and piazzas.

Rome might be the Eternal City and Milan the world’s fashion capital, but Florence is one of the Earth’s most pedestrian-friendly cities.

Walking is the best way to soak in the historic, sometimes-fairy-tale-like Florentine atmosphere. The Renaissance buildings, narrow cobblestone streets, wide piazzas and centuries-old bridges spanning the Arno River bring pedestrian sightseers the quintessential Italian city experience. Many of the city’s main sights are located in its historic central district. Attractions that can be reached easily on foot include the incomparable Uffizi Gallery, the Piazzale Michelangelo, and the famous Ponte Vecchio, shown here.
