“Florence is a great destination for its rich culture, museums, food, and wine,”
says top AAA agent and Italy expert Lee Sparks. “There are many museums and churches to visit, some of them free. Since Florence is not a particularly big city, it's easy to get around by walking. And its central location makes it the perfect jumping-off point for day trips all around Tuscany.”
With so many choices, advice from a travel agent is invaluable.
