Travelling to Florence, Italy
Tuscany’s largest city, Florence, has been a favourite amongst travellers since at least the 1700s, and with good reason. The birthplace of the Renaissance, it’s known at the ‘Athens of the Middle Ages’, and has many incredibly well-preserved buildings, churches and monuments, many of them filled with Renaissance art. Its historic centre is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, attracting more than 10 million tourists each year.
Piazza del Duomo, the epicentre of the Renaissance, is located in the heart of Florence’s historic centre. One of the most visited places in all of Europe, it is here you will find Brunelleschi’s dome, atop Florence’s most famous building, the Cattedrale di Santa Maria del Fiore, the city's main church. This is also where you’ll find many of Florence’s key landmarks, including Giotto's Campanile, an ornate gothic tower, the Loggia del Bigallo, the Opera del Duomo Museum and the Florence Baptistry, one of the city’s oldest buildings.
Don’t miss the Piazza della Signoria, with its copy of Michelangelo's David, one of the most photographed artworks in the world. You can see the original at the Accademia Gallery near Piazza San Marco, while the Uffizi Gallery boasts the world's finest collection of Italian Renaissance art, with visitors lining up for hours to see the famous works within.
Make sure you try the local Florentine specialities of Bistecca Fiorentina (Florentine Steak), Ribollita, a thick bread and vegetable soup, and the famous chianti wine.
