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.

Away from the museums, you won't be short of picture-perfect views during your Florence city break, thanks to its dreamy domes, terracotta rooftops and medieval bridges. Admire its best angles from a rooftop bar or hillside piazza, or cruise the Arno aboard a traditional barchetto – Florence's answer to the Venetian gondola.

And let’s not forget the food: alongside traditional Tuscan cuisine, Florence has an increasingly dynamic dining scene. Get your fill of home-style fare at old-school trattorias, blow the budget at a Michelin-starred restaurant, or just stroll the cobblestone streets with a scoop of gelato.

Leave room in your suitcase, too – Florence is a shopping hotspot. For leather goods, handmade jewellery and artisanal perfumes, shop at tiny boutiques in the Santa Croce and Santo Spirito neighbourhoods.

*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.
