With so many things to do in Florence, the only problem you’ll have is trying to fit it all in! This city is bursting with top attractions, making it one of the most exciting destinations to visit in all of Italy.

  • Tuscany’s capital is bursting with culture, so a visit to some of the city’s galleries and museums is a must. The Uffizi Gallery is a great place to start. Home to famous masterpieces by artists such as Botticelli and Caravaggio, this gallery boasts a vast collection of paintings, sculptures, busts, prints, and drawings.
  • Whether you fancy trying the local speciality of ‘Bistecca alla Fiorentina’, or a tasty gelato, sampling the mouthwatering Florentine cuisine really is one of the best things to do in Florence. Whatever you choose, don’t forget to wash it all down with a glass of Florence’s favourite: a dry, slightly tart Chianti.
  • For unforgettable views of the entire Tuscany region, climb the ancient steps of the Basilica di Santa Maria del Fiore to view Florence and its surroundings from the Duomo. The 13th century cathedral is filled with Renaissance artworks, including Giorgio Vasari's 1572 frescoes of the Last Judgment.
  • To experience the quieter side of Florence, take a trip across the famous Ponte Vecchio bridge to the artsy, laid-back neighbourhood of Oltrarno. Florence’s answer to New York City’s Brooklyn, it’s here you’ll find a whole host of antique stores, craft markets, artisan studios, and hip bars brewing their own beers.
