Florence holidays: birthplace of the Renaissance
As if Tuscany wasn't beautiful enough, its capital of Florence is one of the most iconic, romantic and visually alluring cities in the world. Known as the birthplace of the Renaissance, the city has counted Leonardo da Vinci, Botticelli and Michelangelo amongst its residents, and remains a hugely important centre for arts, culture and fashion in Italy and the world. A UNESCO World Heritage Site, Florence is one of the world's most romantic cities: stay in a range of beautiful four and five star hotels with our unique offers by signing up today.
Art, culture, history and fashion
A city that is breathtaking in its architecture, Florence has cultivated stylishness for centuries, and continues to do so. To walk around the city is to be treated to the greatest buildings, sculptures and art of the middle ages and subsequently, and today there remains several galleries and museums that are of global significance. The city is also lined with designer boutiques that are perfect for whiling away an afternoon, and there are beautiful libraries that will enchant any visitor. One of the most culturally rich cities in the world, Florence is not to be missed.
The food of Florence is interesting in that it is borne from the simplistic, peasant cooking of Tuscany, rather than the high-minded fine dining that other wealthy Italian cities deal in. Expect simple, rustic and delicious fare focusing on good quality meat and bread, specialising particularly in the T-Bone steak and the panzanella bread salad during the summer months. During the carnival months, you can expect to find a great deal of "schiacciata alla fiorentina": a white flatbread cake that is a perfect match of soft texture and simple ingredients. This latter aspect hammers home the ethos of the city's cuisine.
