Florence City Holidays

Show on Map

Immerse yourself in historical beauty and cultural energy in this charming and exciting city.

Historical hotspot

For a city break with all the warmth of a beach holiday, look no further than Florence. Temperatures between May and September average in the high 20s, but like in any busy city, it can feel a great deal warmer on the ground! The city has so much to offer to holidaymakers alongside its historical treats, such as a booming fashion scene that will have you strutting like a supermodel across the piazzas. The Renaissance culture extends to Florence’s vibrant nightlife, with the bars and clubs staying true to the city’s rustic roots.

The cradle of the Renaissance

Florence is credited with being the birthplace of one of the most significant cultural revolutions the world has ever seen. The city is overflowing with Renaissance treasures, from Italy’s most famous art galleries, to Michelangelo’s ‘David’ and the historical bridge - the Ponte Vecchio. The 14th century medieval walls surrounding the city still remain in part, and the stunning Duomo lies at the very heart of the city. For a water feature that can rival any in Rome, seek out the Fountain of Neptune near the Palazzo Vecchio.

A world-renowned wine region

Tuscany is famous for many things, but above all else for its exquisite wines. When in Florence, you can be sure that you will sample some of the many wines that the region has so lovingly crafted. Look out for Chianti and the fine Cabernet Sauvignons that are famously produced in Tuscany. If you’re having these with dinner, make sure you try the olive oil that is also native to the region. The intense and flavoursome culinary delights of Florence will be difficult to match anywhere else!

Insider Tip

If you are going there to experience the museums on offer then it is highly recommended to get a ticket with a timed entry for the Uffizi and Accademia. Queues can often be long and waits can be up to 2 hours in the summer. Pre-book and have more time to explore the rest of the city rather than wait in a queue.

Food and drink

Florence’s delicacies reveal themselves to be suitably artisan, such as wild boar stew and Florentine steak.

Shopping

Florence combines shopping and sightseeing at the jewellers on the medieval Ponte Vecchio. It also boasts the Gucci Museum in the designer’s native town.

Must-see

Florence features the resplendent red dome of the Duomo, Renaissance art in the Uffizi Gallery and Michelangelo’s David in the Accademia.

Getting around

A direct train service links Pisa with Florence. It’s an excellent option for exploring both cities. Florence’s medieval streets and squares are often car-free, making city strolls on foot even more enjoyable.
