About Florence

Florence is located in Central-Northern Italy, in the lush Tuscany region. Regarded as the birthplace of the Renaissance, this city is an art lover's idea of heaven. The city’s plethora of museums, palaces, churches, and artistic treasures landed Florence the #1 spot in our ranking of the most cultured cities in Europe.

Visit the Uffizi Gallery to see many of the world's greatest Renaissance masterpieces, including work by Raphael, da Vinci, Botticelli, and Michelangelo. Michelangelo's famous sculpture of David in his birthday suit is on view at the Accademia Galleria. The Institute and Museum of the History of Science is another must-see attraction to learn about the scientific instruments vital to some of the 13th century's world-changing discoveries.

After you have finished exploring Florence's many museums and galleries, head outside to enjoy a relaxing stroll through the Boboli Gardens and appreciate this stunning example of "green architecture."

The city is also home to almost every high-end designer label you can bring to mind, as well as museums dedicated to Gucci and Ferragamo. For a less expensive shopping experience, visit one of the many affordable boutiques and local clothing stores for a more authentic taste of the city.

Florence is a top-rated destination, meaning it has well-established international and national travel connections. Florence's Amerigo Vespucci International Airport makes air travel simple. Fast and modern trains also connect the city to numerous European cities, and many bus carriers offer frequent services to Florence.
