From the very first glance, Florence lay claim to the title of “my favorite European city”. It might actually be my favorite city – period. While the Renaissance city may not seem like an ideal family destination, kids will be awed by the art, architecture, gardens and food. And it’s no wonder, Florence is simply magical- the light casting a warm golden glow on the decorative buildings, the tantalizing smell of traditional Tuscan cuisine wafting through the air and the laughter of children as they romp about the square. It all sets the stage for a fabulous Florence, Italy holiday with kids.
