Why go to Florence

Step straight on to the A Room with a View film set on city breaks to Florence for a Tuscan treat of Renaissance art and juicy Florentine steak. The winding River Arno flows from the hilly Chianti country outside the city under the Ponte Vecchio Bridge, where medieval merchants once set up shop.

Florence is one of those city breaks that offer real magic when you visit. But what makes it so fantastic?

The city has a tight network of streets in its busy centre opening up into squares littered with Renaissance art, palazzos and street side cafes to sit back and take in the atmosphere.

The giant dome of the Santa Maria del Fiore Cathedral, or Duomo, looms over the hotchpotch of squares below. The grand Piazza della Signoria is the perfect meeting spot for dates at the Uffizi Gallery next door. Catch a glimpse of the piazza's copycat David statue before you see him at the nearby Accademia gallery.

If you travel up to the Michelangelo Gardens you can get a classic photo of the roofs and domes of the city below with the river in front.

From Florence's airport, ATAF public buses whizz you to central Santa Maria Novella station in 25 minutes. The quick taxi ride takes just 15 minutes. Many more people arrive at Pisa airport which has a low cost airline base from which many UK flights arrive. Trains take you from the station via Pisa Central into Florence in around an hour.

To get around in the city, start off on foot. It's a very walkable centre. Otherwise there are hop on hop off buses, or you can take advantage of the good bus system with orange ATAF electric minibuses zipping along Florence's central, narrow roads to the Duomos doorstep.

*ATOL (Air Travel Organiser's Licence) is a financial protection scheme for package holidays: It provides support to consumers in the event their holiday provider collapses. Booking with an ATOL holder ensures that you won't be left out of pocket and you won't be left stranded abroad. All package holidays compared using TravelSupermarket are protected by ATOL.

ABTA (Association of British Travel Agents) offers similar cover for packages booked with its members. However, while ATOL predominantly covers flight-based packages, ABTA covers non-flight based holidays (such as rail and cruise) and linked travel arrangements. If you are unsure whether or not your trip is covered by ABTA, check with your provider.
