The cultural preservation body UNESCO holds Florence’s art and architecture so highly, it made the entire city centre an historic World Heritage Site. It’s not hard to see why: some of history’s greatest works of art are here, from the hallowed halls of the Uffizi (ooh-FEET-zee) to the preserved palaces and playgrounds of the Medici (med-EE-chee), Florence is a living museum of some of Europe’s best artists. Visit the city’s museums to see priceless paintings, intricate sculptures, golden craftwork and the stories behind them all.
