FLORENCE BREAKS

A historical city bedded on the Arno River, Florence is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the whole of Italy. A brisk stroll through the heart of the city will reveal a cultured metropolis of different nationalities and social backgrounds. The city thrives on the influx of tourist parties and with such a versatile list of attractions, it’s no wonder why.

Blessed with a rich history dating back to the time of Julius Caesar, few destinations in Rome can compare to the natural elegance with which Florence welcomes its many tourists every year. Having reigned as the famous Kingdom of Italy in the late nineteenth century, it is the proud capital of Tuscany and home to around 400,000.

Famed for its heavy influence in Italian art and architecture, the city has much to offer in the cultural sense. With great names such as Michelangelo and Leonardo da Vinci using the location as a base for their craft, you’d duly expect plenty of inspirational attractions – Florence doesn’t disappoint.

A traditional hot spot for students and museum travellers, there’s plenty of history to be delved in to and you can usually find a wide variety of galleries and exhibitions if you keep your eyes peeled. Some of the finest art in the world rests in the heart of Florence and there can be no mistaking the architectural glory with which its main attractions lure in the visitors.

Home to one of the grandest architectural delights of them all, you’d be well advised to make a trip to the spectacular Santa Maria del Fiore cathedral or as it’s popularly known by tourists – The Duomo.

This incredible domed structure was built by Filippo Brunelleschi with work commencing as early as 1290. It took a long time to complete, but one glance at the huge cathedral and any scepticism will be erased from your mind. It was most definitely worth the wait.

Visitors can climb to the top of the building and marvel at a glorious view of the city on a hot summer’s day. And rest assured that it gets hot – very hot! The summer months can be extremely uncomfortable if you’re not one for cracking open the sun tan lotion and enjoying the heat. Surrounding The Duomo, be sure to spare the time to visit the Baptistery. Remembered as an inspiration to so many crucial figures in the Renaissance, there’s plenty to admire about the vast marble creation.

For fans of the great man himself, some of Michelangelo’s finest work is restored to prominence in the Tuscany capital and well worth the admission. It goes without saying that the city is an artist’s dream. Inspiration oozes from the very Arno River which splits the land and separates the old from the new.

Across the river, you can find another key destination for followers of Renaissance history. Pitti Palace acts as a sprawling home to some of the finest galleries in Europe and continues to host various pieces from arguably the most famous era in Italian culture.

As reigning World Champions of the FIFA World Cup, it seems that Italy has regained its passion for the national game of football. You can find the stadium of AC Fiorentina in the heart of Florence where tours are regularly available for travellers with a sporting interest. While certainly not cheap, the trip is worth making to see one of Italy’s most historical teams on their home turf.

Standing over the Arno River you‘ll find the graceful and picturesque Ponte Vecchio. A world renowned bridge which joins the two halves of the city, the sight can be quite breathtaking at sunset. It also hosts an abundance of jewellery parlours for which the city has nurtured great fame.

If you’re travelling without a vehicle, be prepared to make the most of the bus system which gets most Florence natives from A to B. A train network operates on a larger scale joining various cities in Italy, but you’ll have to make do on your feet or use the popular buses to fully explore the true depth of this richly treasured city.

As a cornerstone for key Italian culture, very few cities come close to touching the natural elegance of Florence.
