Florence

Florence... the Heart of Tuscany


Florence, the birthplace of the Renaissance, is considered to be one of the most beautiful art cities in the world.

Its many museums, palaces and churches host some of the most important art treasures in existence.

The Baptistery and Il Duomo di Firenze, the Cathedral of Florence, the Uffizi Galleries, Palazzo Vecchio, and splendid Piazza Santa Croce are unforgettable.

And if you want a break from visiting museums and galleries, stroll through the streets in the historic centre, pause on romantic Ponte Vecchio for a coffee or enjoy the incredible view of the city from Piazzale Michelangelo.
