Ah Florence, its a pretty amazing city, but most usually visit the other major cities like Rome and Milan and then they may consider alternate cities such as Florence. Lots of people do visit Florence so its not so unfamiliar, but certainly not as familiar as the major cities. Check i tout and let me know if you agree that it too is worth visiting.
Bologna, Italy. This city is old and charming. It seems like a lot is going on when you arrive and that’s cause there is. It has a lot of historical things to explore and where they can, they’ve preserved the old city walls. Make Bologna the destination the next time you’re in the northern part of Italy.
