Florence is a must-see in Italy
It offers a wide range of history, a beautiful historical city centre and a lof of possibilities to spent money in all sorts of good shops.
If you want to go there, I would suggest train, because the traffic situation is bad in the city center, as thought you can easily reach the city itself good by the highways. Take yourself time, to see the different places. The best would be to spend at least one weekend there to be able to see all the wonders of old Italian architecture.
