The Italian city of Florence is one of those destinations that makes it onto many a bucket list. The whole of the city centre is a UNESCO World Heritage site, for starters, and this very special destination is overflowing with art, culture and history. If that’s not enough, the surrounding Tuscan countryside is also a must.
Florence offers something for every member of your group or family. For loved-up couples, there are plenty of options when it comes to fine dining in the most romantic settings. Shoppers love the intricate local jewellery and garments sold at the city’s markets, while art and culture buffs will of course have plenty to keep them busy. The city makes a great destination for families too, as there’s lots children can learn from a visit to a Florentine art gallery or church.
There’s a large number of Florence hotels that can cater for every kind of visitor, from cheap hotels in Florence or Tuscany, to 5-star hotels in Florence that are centrally located and offer the very best facilities for a luxurious getaway. Whether you want a romantic break for two or a family sightseeing holiday, you can find just what you’re looking for in the Tuscan capital, from a smart, contemporary property by the Arno and Uffizi gallery, to an ancient building close to the Piazza del Duomo.
Florence is many things to many people, so your perfect holiday here can be just what you’d like it to be. You may want to explore Medici history or museums full of the very finest works of art in the world, or maybe you’d prefer 5-star dining at a Michelin-starred restaurant. If stargazing is more your thing, then the Tuscan countryside begins just as the city limits end, and offers plenty of opportunity to take in breathtaking scenery, sample fine wine or admire the olive groves and rolling hills.
Within the city, don’t miss the very Italian ‘passeggiata’ - a daily occurrence when people dress up, enjoy a drink and socialise in the picture-perfect setting of the city’s many pretty piazzas. If you’re feeling energetic during your stay, climb over 450 steps of the Duomo’s basilica for panoramic views over the city and countryside beyond.
Don’t miss the Italian masters, either; you can see paintings, sculptures and other works by Donatello, Michelangelo and Raphael and others at the Accademia, Bargello Museum, Palazzo Pitti, Uffizi Gallery and more, and there’s even a dedicated Leonardo Da Vinci Museum.
