Anyone who lives in my city must know that the prices of Florentine houses are very high both for rent and for purchase. Florence in summer is one of the hottest cities in Italy so I would consider buying good air conditioning especially if you live on the highest floors of buildings. if you decide to buy a house in the city center finding parking for your car is a real challenge, especially if you have large cars and if you live in a family. Leaving aside the fact that many of the streets in the center of Florence are exclusively reserved for pedestrians so unless you drive a taxi, you better go by other secondary roads (in the main hours of the day).

Firenze is the capital in Toscana, where you can find lots of historical places that were from the renaissance period. One of which is the Duomo also known as Santa Maria del Fiore, it is in the heart of the historic place, and around it there are also some shopping outlets if you want to buy something luxurious. Making some steps back will bring you to the famous “Ponte Vecchio”, a bridge above the long river Arno, where along the old bridge there are lots of jewelries store, made of gold and silver. The city is not too big that you can walk around if you are willing and enjoy the beautiful panoramas that Firenze can offer.

My city is one of the best cities in the world, both for its landscapes (it consists of many beautiful hills, but also big, beautiful cities) and for all its history which is known all over the world. Florence is pure art and nature. If you live there, you could always open the window of your house and see how beautiful it is.

One must surely know that Firenze, or Florence, as it is called by foreigners, is one of the most beautiful cities in Europe and the world; it’s name means “blooming like a flower” and the city is in fact a vast collection of the works of the geniuses of the past, Michelangelo, Raffaello, Leonardo da Vinci, arts and culture are what make my city wonderful.
