The huge, resounding midday chimes of the city’s cathedral and other churches is a great introduction to Florence the Divine. We’ll climb to the summit of the Doumo’s dome, tour the great Santa Croce church, a sixteenth century pharmacy which made perfume for Catherine de Medici, walk the Ponte Vecchio, visit Florence’s great leather-working school and test the world’s best ice-cream. Tim flew with budget British airline Easyjet to Pisa and then travelled by bus to Florence. It’s a short journey and very enjoyable passing through Tuscan countryside.
