Immerse yourself in Italian culture and history, explore museums and art galleries, shop until you drop or simply relax in restaurants and lounge in pavement cafes and bars. Florence has it all!
For many years Florence has been celebrated as the most beautiful and famous City in Italy and there are many reasons why: the courtesy and sympathy of its people, the delicious cuisine, the beauty of the landscape that surrounds it, the good nightlife, the great shopping possibilities, but most of all its artistic splendour. Even if Florence is a modern town, it is almost impossible not to consider it a museum city.
The Florentines love to consider their town as the cradle of the Italian culture; in fact, many of the most important Italian artists were born or worked here. Among them there are characters such as Dante Alighieri, Bocaccio, Petrarca, Giotto, Brunelleschi, Leonardo da Vinci and Michelangelo.
Nearly all of the main sights in Florence lie within the centro storico, which makes it a perfect location for a City break but there is so much classic art that even given the city’s small size, it’s impossible to see it all in a short visit (the centro storico has more artistic treasures per square metre than any other city in the world!).
