Power Walk: The Most Walkable Cities in the World

Though you may be able to see the sights out of the window of your cab, to truly experience the country that your visiting, you should walk around a bit.

Today on Travelversed, we’re going to explore the most interesting, feet-friendly destinations that will no doubt satisfy your vagabond shoes. So, lace up your runners, fill up your water bottle, and get ready to immerse yourself in the most walkable cities on the planet.

Florence

As far as walkable cities go, few (if any) are better than Florence. The Tuscan capital was once a center for trade and finance in medieval Europe. Translation: prepare yourself for an education in Italian architecture. It’s an official World Heritage Site that’s full of museums, art galleries, and Italian food.

The city is small. How small? A determined traveler can walk from one end to the other in less than an hour. What’s more, areas of the city’s historic center are restricted to buses, taxis, and permit-holding residents, encouraging pedestrians to roam free. In short, you must walk the streets of Florence at least once in your life. You certainly won’t regret it.
