What Florence has to offer?
Ponte Vecchio and unmissable sites
Walking around Florence is first and foremost a risky business. During a stopover in 1817, Stendhal was so in awe of the city that he suffered from dizziness and hallucinations. The birthplace of the Renaissance, the city of Florence is filled with many beautiful squares, churches, and bridges, all of which have stunning architecture. Amongst them, the Ponte Vecchio is a must! Now a mecca for luxury jewellers and goldsmiths, it’s the only bridge in Florence that was not destroyed in WW2 in 1945.
The City of Artists
The birthplace of Botticelli, Vinci, Michelangelo and Raphael, Florence is a city made for art lovers! A lot of these artists’ works are displayed in the Uffizi Gallery, one of the most famous museums on the planet. However, if you’re more of an outdoor person, the palace is worth a visit. Built in the 16th century, the palace is divided by the Vasari Corridor, a 750m path once used by the city’s Medici family to cross the city. Between its beauty and history, it's a must-see!
Sun and scenery
But don’t forget; Between the valleys and delicious culture, Florence is also the capital of Tuscany. In the south, the Chianti region is well-known for its high-quality wines. But in this small mountain range of around 20km, it’s hard not to get lost in the beautiful natural landscape! And if you prefer to catch some rays, the beach is never far from you. Viareggio and Massa Maritama are ready to welcome you!
