Florence is an open-air exhibit of art and culture. It is known worldwide as the heart of the Renaissance and the home of fine art and literature & it houses some of the greatest artistic treasures in the world. Signature examples include Fillippo Brunelleschi’s “Duomo” and Michelangelo’s timeless statue of “David,” arguably the most recognisable and widely known image of Western culture. The romantic “Ponte Vecchio” is one of Europe’s last fully stone bridges & then there is Giotto’s bell tower & the churches of Santa Maria Novella & Santa Croce. Visit world famous museums such as the Uffizi, Accademia & the Barghello. Wander the vast & varied art collection in the Pitti Palace & when you have grown wary of art, churches & culture spend a day at the beautiful Boboli Gardens or climb the hill of San Miniato al Monte to capture a timeless look at the city. Florence gave rise to illuminaries such as Leonardo Da Vinci, Michelangelo & Dante Aligheri- their impact changed our visual and literary world forever. Visit Florence to feel where it all began.
