To see the sun sink down, drowned on his pink and purple and golden floods, and overwhelm Florence with tides of color that make all the sharp lines dim and faint and turn the solid city to a city of dreams, is a sight to stir the coldest nature, and make a sympathetic one drunk with ecstasy.
– Mark Twain
Florence contains more art, culture, and history packed within its city walls than some entire countries. The best part? It’s pretty small for a major city and super walkable.
