Firenze: cradle of the Renaissance! The place to immerse yourself in world-famous art, gourmet Tuscan cuisine and the vibrant culture of Italy. One of the most beautiful cities in the world, Florence is one-third of the top Italian destinations (with Rome and Venice). Enchanting, romantic and irresistibly magical, Firenze is a feast for the senses.
The ideal way to explore the many museums, palaces and churches – housing some of the world’s greatest artistic treasures – is from a rental apartment. Live like the Italians: grab an espresso; dine in a Trattoria; soak up the culture and magnificence of Florence, all from the freedom of your own home-from-home.
Florence is a city best enjoyed on foot. The historical centre, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is home to all of the key attractions. The exquisite art and architecture of the Duomo, Uffizi, Bargello, and the Accademia; the veritable art galleries in the churches of Santa Maria Novella and Santa Croce; the enchanting Boboli Gardens – all of these world famous destinations are a short, and exciting, stroll from one another.
But, there’s more to magnificent Florence than just museums and monuments. It’s bursting with quirky shops and crafts; a vibrant city with an eclectic culture and delicious restaurants, bars and thriving nightlife. Or why not simply meander through the oldest streets in the city around the Arno River and cross the world-famous Ponte Vecchio?
Escaping the hubbub of bustling Florence is easy and convenient. Enjoy some downtime in the dazzling vine-covered hills of Chianti. Or take an easy excursion to one of the impeccable Tuscan historical art towns, such as Arezzo, Siena and Lucca.
