Owner description: That part of Florence situated between Piazza San Marco, Piazza Santa Maria Novella, Santa Croce, and Santo Spirito, filled with up-scale and expensive shops.

Seems all the jewelry store decided to locate in the same place and put them on this bridge. Probably more interesting to see from off the bridge

It is really a visit worth and you have all the old story here and also the shopping mix. Even the good food shops are here. The only little minus is that here is very crowed

This is one of the most beatiful cities in the world. The Centro Storico, or Old City, is an intricate labrynth of tiny streets, most of them filled with trattorias and lovely cafes. I could spend hours walking these charming streets. What a wonderful city!!

There's no doubt about the huge number of historical sights to see and visit when in this area.
About the shops - I didn't go to Florence to go shopping, history is more important; and yet when there one shouldn't just leave with a magnet and a postcard. I bought a fine silk scarf - you just owe it to that place, really!
And yes, prepare for crowds - inevitable.

If you can find a small apartment in the center that can accommodate your group, this is the best of experience. To be in heart in the early morning and the evening hours when the crowds thin is the best way to experience any city in Italy, but especially Florence. You will enjoy the piazzas with a few people around and in the morning, see the delivery trucks and the street sweepers. There is more to see than just the attractions.
