About the location

Holidays in Florence allow you to experience one of Europe’s most culturally and historically significant cities. Florence is a vibrant city nestled among the idyllic green hills of Tuscany. It retains a sense of intimacy and romance thanks to its relatively small size, while also offering a remarkable selection of museums, galleries, and restaurants, which continue to impress even the most regular visitor. Every stroll has the potential for something remarkable, whether it’s peering out of the Vasari Corridor or wandering across the Giardino di Boboli. Alternatively, for those looking to relax, there are beautiful vistas to be seen while enjoying a rooftop aperitivi in the evening.

Perhaps most known for its remarkable historical architecture, you will easily find renowned pieces of art by famous artists such as Filippo Brunelleschi, Leon Battista Alberti, and Michelangelo throughout the city. Florence continues to celebrate this tradition with impressive modern buildings, notably The New Florence Opera House, maintaining the city’s reputation as a marvel from every angle. Any visiting foodies will undoubtedly revel in Florence’s food culture, from its seven Michelin starred restaurants to the brilliant bustle of the Mercato Centrale. For peaceful and romantic retreats, there are numerous opportunities for short trips to the surrounding landscapes and towns, allowing for blissful escapes into Italy’s rural life.
