All about Florence tourism

Florence was once home to the Renaissance and is still Italy's art capital to this day. There are few places quite as romantic or evocative as Florence’s World Heritage Site historic center with the duomo sitting high above all. Want to visit this historic and enchanting capital of Tuscany? Well, the first step in planning your Florence holidays is deciding how to get there!

You can visit Florence by plane at Florence Airport and then catch a bus to Piazza Stazione every half hour of the day. Or, if you plan to travel to Florence as part of a greater tour through Italy, Firenze Santa Maria Novella railway station offers regular trains to Milan, Pisa, Rome, Naples, Nice, and even Vienna! Once in the city, you’ll have no problem moving around on food or on the city’s light-rail tram system.

As the home of the Renaissance, art and architecture are the stars of Florence tourism. Places like the Uffizi Gallery, Accademia Gallery (home to Michelangelo’s iconic David), and the Pitti Palace offer a wonderland for art and history lovers alike. Throughout your Florence holiday, you’ll see the mighty duomo in the distance, and a visit to Florence Cathedral to marvel at it’s architecture and collection is a must for any holiday in Florence.

Finally, with all the basilicas, museums, cathedrals, churches, and galleries to see, it could make your trip to Florence feel more like a whirlwind than anything. But remember that you’re in Tuscany, after all, one of the world capitals of fine wine and great rustic cuisine. So make some time for a relaxing glass of Chianti while you savor the earthy flavors of the region’s legendary cuisine.
