The districts of Florence.

Find the one with your name on it.

Florence is a fairly compact city, so it's ideal if you're into sightseeing on foot. The centre is where you’ll want to spend most of your time, as it's home to all the must-see attractions, from the Duomo and Ponte Vecchio to the famous Piazza della Signoria. Tired of tourists and fancy living a more authentic Florentine experience? Check out the lively student area of San Marco, the bohemian Santa Croce or the shopping haven of Santa Maria Novella.
