Read more about Florence

Florence is the regional capital of Tuscany, in the centre of Italy and is also the centre of the Italian Renaissance. Florence is packed with museums and churches which hold some of the most iconic masterpieces in the world including Michelangelo’s David displayed in the Accademia and Leonardo da Vinci's Annunciation in the Uffizi Gallery. The Laurentian Library is a magnificent exhibition of Michelangelo's architectural work which was commissioned in 1523. Florence's most stunning landmark is Brunelleschi's dome on the Piazza del Duomo which also has an abundance of fashion and souvenir shops.

If you have had enough of sightseeing and culture you can take a stroll over the Ponte Vecchio which is the only bridge in Venice to have survived the second world war intact. You could also take a day trip into the countryside and visit one of the many Tuscan vineyards & wineries and sample some Chianti.
