Fall in Love in the Beautiful City of Florence

Florence can be an incredibly special place when you are with someone you care about. Fortunately, there is also plenty to do and see when you are with your significant other. Italy is a country of romance, and Florence is a city that exemplifies it in almost every way.

When you want an overall great view of the city, one of the best places to view the entirety of it is San Miniato al Monte. This serene environment makes it easy to relax and enjoy your company with someone you love. Climbing the steps can be a difficult endeavor, but it's worth it when reaching the top in order to get the kind of view you'll remember for a lifetime.

Also think about a wine-tasting expedition with Grape Tours or consider going on a walk through the blooming rose garden at the magnificent Boboli Gardens. The hardest part is not finding something to do, but choosing which activity sounds like the most fun for you and your love.
