Florence is at the heart of Italy’s Tuscany region. Birthplace of the Renaissance, travellers have long been drawn to the storied city’s art and architecture. Excellent olive oil, world-renowned wine, and plentiful fresh produce make it a destination for food lovers. The cuisine is simple and unpretentious, and like the city itself, steeped in history and tradition.
