Why go to Florence

As the birthplace of the Italian Renaissance, Florence is a celebration of art, culture and la dolce vita. With museums and medieval churches packed with must-see masterpieces, incredible architecture throughout and crowd-pleasing cuisine as standard, the Tuscan capital is everything you could want in a city break.

Split by the River Arno, you’ll likely spend most of your time on the north bank – the historic heart of the city – checking off Florence’s big hitters (first stop, the Duomo). But the less touristy south bank, known as Oltrarno, has its own attractions – think buzzy bars, hip restaurants and boutique hotels.

For art lovers, the city is in a league of its own. Florence has more than 70 museums and countless Renaissance artworks, including paintings by Botticelli and sculptures by Michelangelo. Don’t limit yourself to old masters, though. Check out Museo Novecento’s collection of contemporary Italian art and delve deep into the city’s past at the Archaeological Museum.
