Florence - the jewel of Renaissance Italy - is one of Italy’s most beautiful cities. Florence is often considered the birthplace of Italian Renaissance; its celebrated sons are DaVinci, Michelangelo and Machiavelli. Our hotels in Florence are located in the heart of this city that was a centre of finance and trade in medieval European. The Medici family was extremely influential in Florence during the 14th to 16th centuries in economic development, art, sculpture and architecture. You will see the family crest on many buildings as you walk through the city.
Dominating the skyline is the beautiful Duomo with the Brunelleschi cupola and Giotto's Bell Tower as well as the bronze sculpted doors of the marble-clad Baptistry. Walk up the 414 steps to the top of the tower and you’ll be rewarded with stunning views of the city. Winding through the city is the Arno River giving you many ornate bridges to view and cross, specifically the Ponte Vecchio (old bridge). Built in 972, the bridge is home to gold and silver shops that have hung over the river since the 12th century.
For art lovers you could spend days in the Uffizi Gallery, home to Michelangelo’s ‘David’, or the Academy Gallery and Pitti Palace, home to great Italian Renaissance masters. Relax in the Bobili Gardens after a day experiencing the sights of Florence... just make sure you have some energy left as the gardens are complete with fountains, statutes - if you make it to the top - stunning views of Florence.
With so many historical buildings to look at and admire, make sure that you spend time in one of the many piazzas enjoying an espresso and watching the crowds go by. You must sample the flavour rich Florentine cuisine, with its four fundamental ingredients: bread, olive oil, grilled meat and of course wine at one of the many restaurants close to your Florence hotel.
Florence is a great base to explore Tuscany, see the medieval cities of Pisa, Sienna, Lucca and the rolling countryside of the Chianti region. So book your Florence hotel today!
