WHY CHOOSING FLORENCE
Florence in the Middle Ages was an important cultural, commercial and economic hub. It has been the capital city of Tuscany since the time of the Medici family and later it was governed by the Habsbourg Loren dynasty. It was the second Italian capital, shortly after the unification of Italy in 1861. For its outstanding significant value, in 1982 Florence was declared Word UNESCO Heritage. Its 600 years of extraordinary artistic and human activity can be seen in its numerous monuments, above all in the medieval cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore, the respectively franciscan and dominican churches of Santa Croce and Santa Maria Novella, the masterpiece housed in Uffizi Galley and the work of great masters such as Giotto, Brunelleschi, Botticelli and Michelangelo.
WHAT TO DO IN FLORENCE
Florence is a city that seems frozen in time, with its marble facades, its ancient churches and its old fashion shops. People come to Florence and they fall in love with it, always feeling like they’ve just scratched the surface. There are always return trips to make! Most of the people stay 2 or 3 days in Florence, which is obviously to enough, but still you can do plenty of things. Climb the 476 steps of Brunelleschi’s dome, indulge yourself with a delicious gelato at Gelateria dei Neri, don’t miss the sunset from the steps of Piazzale Michelangelo, go to Uffizi Gallery at 8:15 in the morning to avoid the big crowds, go to Accademia Gallery on a Tuesday night and enjoy a tête-à-tête with Michelangelo’s David, have an aperitivo at Procacci with a truffle sandwich and a prosecco glass. At above all, treat yourself on a private tour of Florence to make your stay memorable!
