Must See & Do

The City

One of the most written about cities in Italy, Florence (Firenze) has a strange effect on visitors. Travellers who normally loathe art galleries queue for hours to get into them, and people with no interest in Renaissance architecture start raving about tiered facades and frescoed apses. The list of its famous sons reads like a Renaissance Who's Who – under M alone you'll find Medici, Machiavelli and Michelangelo – and its celebrated cityscape lingers in the memory long after you've left town.

FOODS TO TRY:

Lampredotto
Traditional dish made from the fourth stomach of a cow, usually served in a sandwich as street food.

HIDDEN GEM:

Santa Maria Novella Pharmacy
Probably the oldest operating pharmacy in the world, with 800 year old recipes from monks, in an extraordinary original building.

Must Sees

  1. Duomo The colourful facade, Brunelleschi’s enormous dome- it’s hard to know where to start with this magnificent cathedral.
  2. Michelangelo’s Lookout Enjoy the best view of Florence from this lookout across the river.
  3. Piazza della Signoria The historical, political and emotional heart of Florence.
  4. Uffizi Once the offices of the mighty Medici family, today one of the most famous art galleries in the world.
  5. Ponte Vecchio Medieval stone bridge across the Arno river, still full of shops.
