Florence

As one of the world’s most important hubs for art and culture, the attractive city of Florence draws in millions of visitors every year. Known as the ‘Athens of the Middle Ages’, Florence was the birthplace of the Renaissance movement and has retained its cultural importance as the home of world-famous museums and galleries, including the impressive Uffizi Gallery. Enjoy exploring the city by foot and gaze upon the architectural majesty of the Pitti Palace and the Piazza della Signoria. Food and drink are central to any Florence holiday with the delicious fresh produce of the Tuscan region providing the ingredients to outstanding dining experiences. Meanwhile, the friendly backstreet enotecas will showcase some of the area’s best vintage wines. Florence is also the gateway to Tuscany where you can enjoy breathtaking countryside views and witness the laid-back local lifestyle.
