Romantic Florence

Italian Renaissance

Florence, Firenze in Italian, is the capital city of the Italian region of Tuscany. It is considered the birthplace of the Renaissance.

The Historic Centre of Florence attracts millions of tourists each year and it was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. The city is famous for its culture, Renaissance art and architecture and monuments. Due to its artistic and architectural heritage, Florence has been ranked one of the most beautiful cities in the world.

The Basilica di Santa Maria del Fiore, known as "Duomo", not only dominates the skyline but also represents the geographical, cultural and historical centre of the city.

Numerous churches offer concerts and opera performances throughout the year

The quantity and quality of the paintings on display make the Uffizi gallery without a doubt the greatest treasure of Renaissance art in the world.

Despite the fact that Galleria dell Accademia contains a huge number of magnificent and historic works, the queue around the corner is for one attraction above all: Michelangelo's monumental David.

While it is Florence's oldest bridge, the Ponte Vecchio is to be seen from a distance to appreciate the impressive craftsmanship that it really is. So head down to Ponte Santa Trinita to take your pictures.

Piazza di Santo Spirito is home to Florence's hippest, liveliest bars and cafes, most of which feature outdoor terraces. Temporary bars, set up in streets and squares, are a hot summer phenomenon, with piazza Santo Spirito usually playing host to nightly gigs and events.

Similar to the Anglophone happy hour, aperitivo in Florence is an experience to not miss out.

Many local eateries have outdoor terraces and will offer you special views of piazzas and romantic views such as the ponte Vecchio. Wherever you have dinner in Florence, you'll be offered the chance to try Florentine steak, a tasteful thick hunk of beef.
