Very cultural, historical. Good base for visiting Tuscan area. Local train service easy convenient and cheap
Tour companies expensive. Some of the restaurants overlooking key tourist sights are pricey
great city and musuems + art galleries
Cannot comment on night life as we only stayed for one day and had an early night
Absolutely loved Florence. City is full of culture, art and beautiful architecture. Restaurants we tried were all good, za za’s especially good. Found it compact and easy to get round. Bus up to piazza Michelangelo easy to do. Pre-book the uffizi is best tip. And don’t be out off by queue at duomo as it moves quickly.
Like many Italian cities, Florence is a living museum. If you have chosen to travel to Florence you will enjoy Renaissance art like nowhere else on earth, food that will leave your mouth watering for hours after eating it and theatre, ballet and opera that will satiate even the most culture-hungry individuals.
Holidays in Florence are never long enough. Most people usually opt for Florence city breaks, but this may mean you will have to spend time travelling to Florence again in your lifetime. Cities are notoriously expensive places, but Florence hotels cater to all wallet sizes. Cheap hotels in Florence are quite easy to find and tend to be of the smaller, family-fun variety that can offer a real insight into the inner workings of this extraordinary city.
Florence travel is essential to any art lover. From Michelangelo’s David in the Galleria dell’Accademia to Botticelli’s Birth of Venus at the Uffizi Gallery, art is the reason d’etre for most Florence holidays. But it’s not just in galleries and museums where you can find great works of art. The streets themselves are awash with it, both new and old and even the hotels in Florence are examples of Renaissance architecture. Florence is one of a very few cities where you can virtually stay in a work of art.
A typical Florence hotel is an artistic gem and the typical owner of a hotel in Florence is usually of the same quality as their building; gracious, welcoming and hospitable. Most Florence hotels also serve the most amazing breakfasts and afternoon coffees or cocktails if you want to escape the heat of the Tuscan sun. Florence travel is a cultural must in anyone’s lifetime.
