Florence is an exciting city in which to live and study. On an afternoon stroll through the streets of Florence, which is set amidst the golden hills of Tuscany, you can admire the architecture of Giotto and the Baroque sculptures adorning the fountains of the city; linger at the Uffizi Gallery with its vast collection of paintings and sculpture; view the magnificent Santa Croce where Galileo, Michelangelo, and Machiavelli are buried; discuss art with Florentine painters in their studios and explore the bookshops near Via Cavour; and visit one of the most popular spots in Florence, the Ponte Vecchio, a 14th-century bridge spanning the River Arno.
