Florence / Lora Photography

Florence is the capital city of the Italian region of Tuscany and of the province of Florence.

The centre of the city is split by the River Arno and whilst most of the principal attractions lie north of the river, a number are scattered in the more artisan district to the south, an area known as the Oltrarno – literally translated as ‘beyond the Arno’.

They say all roads lead to Rome, but Florence was actually the first city in all of Europe to have paved roads. The first roads were built in 1339.
