Florence, known as the ‘cradle of the Renaissance’, is a remarkable reflection of the art history. Uffizi Gallery is one of the oldest and most prominent art galleries in the World. Piazzale Michelangelo, the square that is elevated above the city is worth the climb since it will reward you with a breathtaking view of the city skyline with a Duomo as a centerpiece. Florence is located in the region of Tuscany, which means you can pair your visit to the city with a trip to some of Italy’s best vineyards. Thriving restaurants in Florence make excellent use of the local produce that Tuscan fields have to offer - olive oil, herbs, truffles, fruits, wine and vegetables are providing Florence menus with savoury flavours.
