About Florence

Including tips for the best time to visit Florence

Florence, the birthplace of the Renaissance, is also the capital of Italy's Tuscany region and a powerhouse of culture, architecture, and art.

The entire city is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, so you never have to look far for things to do. The Uffizi Gallery is home to masterpieces like "The Birth of Venus" and "Primavera" by Sandro Botticelli, as well as Titian's "Venus of Urbino," while the Accademia Gallery is home to Michelangelo's "David" and the unfinished "Slaves." If you have time, be sure to visit other great museums like the Bargello, the Gucci Garden, and the former palace of the famous Medici family.

In the old town's center, you'll find the city's wonderful cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore (also known as Duomo di Firenze) and Giotto's Tower, which offers a 360º view of the entire city. Then make a visit to Mercato Central to try some Florentine cuisine. It's the city's oldest and largest food market, packed with fresh, local produce, and even a bookshop and culinary school. You'll find all the local favorites, from tripe panini and pasta to gelato and Florentine steak.

Florence's Amerigo Vespucci airport is close, only a 15-minute bus or taxi ride from the city center.

What other travelers say about Florence


We cannot wait to return to Florence!

April 1, 2020

We cannot wait to return to Florence! Fantastic people, fantastic food, fantastic architecture and the history is mind-blowing. Fork out the extra cash to do guided tours of the places you really want to see - otherwise it can be overwhelming. Our guided tour through the Uffizi was hosted by a art historian and lecturer from the university - she was spectacular! And: walk, walk, walk - everywhere. And choose a different route each time away from or to your hotel - every street has something magical. Some of my favourite graffiti artists are from Florence. And the food is spectacular. Do NOT go to the touristy places - except for Trattorria dall'Oste - the number of hip Japanese travellers there is testimony to how amazing the place is! And if you can have a steak with truffles - do not hesitate to order that, it should be less than 30Euros - otherwise you are being ripped off. And note, that there is a heavy (undisclosed) extra charge for sitting outside people watching on the Piazza dell Signoria - no matter whether you order a meal and a bottle of wine or just an beer. Whilst if you sit in front of the Duomo, there is no such charge - and we only had ice cream and a coffee there.

Florence is a beautiful city.

Florence is a beautiful city. Lots of amazing places to visit and things to see. We very much enjoyed our time there. It was raining extensively which kind of slowed us down a bit but other than that it was fantastic.

Outstanding cuisine, but this is Italy and the service as well as the fresh food is an art. Since the entire city is a museum, you discover very early on that everywhere you go is amazing. We stayed along the river and the view and easy of getting around was perfect.

Loved walking around in Florence and stopping by cafes and restaurants for coffee, gelato, crostini, wine and traditional meals. My friend and I did a sunset wine tour that was fantastic, I would definitely recommend this type of experience because you'll get a tour of the city and find out about good restaurants and bars to stop at for the rest of your trip. Will definitely grab the next chance I get to visit!

You can walk the most famous place in Florance.

March 8, 2020

You can walk the most famous place in Florance. This is the city definitely beautiful and worth to discover. My activity was watching the sunset in Piazza Michelangelo and seeing the Florance with magical city lights. If you are lucky enough you can listen to a open-air concert from a street artist who had a very pure voice. If you want to make this even more memorable, take with you a bottle of wine. You won't regret it!
