The historic centre of Florence is small enough to explore on foot, but what a wealth of treasures are packed into it! Brunelleschi’s glorious dome floats above it all and a pleasant stroll through the narrow, pedestrianised streets will bring you to Piazza della Signoria with its marvelous Renaissance statues and the famous Uffizi art gallery. Florence has a unique style and elegance that permeates everything, from street market souvenirs to smart couture, from simple snack bars (offering an amazing range of delicious pizza and ice cream!) to the best Tuscan cuisine. Add a Tuscany or Umbria Mix & Match hotel to your City Stay (Apr-Oct). You can also add a few days in Florence onto our Treasures of Tuscany Explorer Holiday.
