Florence Destination Guide

Known as one of Italy’s greatest art and cultural cities, Florence is a Renaissance enthusiast's dream. Works from Botticelli, Michelangelo and Leonardo da Vinci can be found in abundance.


The atmosphere is dynamic and vibrant with a variety of restaurants and trendy bars, craft shops, quirky boutiques and high-end designer stores. There is no shortage of incredible places to explore, with fresco-decorated, candle-lit churches and chapels, cobblestone alleyways, marble basilicas and museums carrying some of the world’s most famous works of art. Many tourists visit Florence for its artisanal shopping and family-run workshops passed down from generation to generation. Goldsmiths, cobblers, tailors and leather smiths are just a few examples of the unique shopping that Florence has to offer.


Florence’s airport, Amerigo Vespucci, is located just 5 km from the city centre and connected to all major Italian cities as well as European and international destinations.
