Great weekend deals to Tuscany, an extraordinary region of food, wine, and culture
City of culture
Florence, the capital of Tuscany, is a city that offers an adventure for every type of traveller. Whether you are seeking to feast your body or your mind, the city offers a unique and unforgettable experience for each and every visitor.
The historic city centre is a UNESCO World Heritage site, and wandering through the winding streets surrounded by Renaissance architecture, you tread in the path of some of the greatest Renaissance artists of all time. Botticelli and Michelangelo all found inspiration here. Some of the greatest works of these masters and more are displayed throughout Florence. It is easy to spend a morning soaking up art at the Uffizi Gallery, home of Botticelli’s Birth of Venus. Michelangelo’s sculpture of David is only a stone's throw away, housed at the Accademia Gallery.
In the heart of Florence you can enjoy The Duomo, the city’s cathedral. Standing tall, watching over all, the building is an architectural masterpiece not to be missed. The monumental brick dome remains one of the largest ever constructed.
Welcome breaks from city exploration can be found in a local trattoria or gelateria, of which there are many. A myriad of fresh gelato flavours will tingle your taste buds.
