Why Florencesarah in florence italy at the duomo 

Though the city houses some of the most important artworks in the world, the landscape of Florence has become art itself. The Tuscan capital is the birthplace of the Renaissance which also spurred a renewed interest in architecture, philosophy, and literature. In addition to the history of the Medici and Michelangelo, Florence is a must visit destination for food, shopping, and of course as a gateway to the Tuscan countryside. 

Where To Stay

There are so many amazing options in Florence, that the answer is… it depends. Some clients love the Portrait Hotel, being right on the river. Others love the service and attention to detail at The Place on Piazza Santa Maria Novela. For a grand hotel, try Hotel Savoy, a Rocco Forte property. Reach out about your next trip and we’ll be happy to make a customized recommendation. 

Things To Do 

Start at the Piazza della Signoria, the center of artistic and political affairs in Florence for centuries. Tour the Uffizi Gallery with a private guide, to understand the history of the renaissance and see some of Boticelli and Rafael’s masterpieces. Shop for specialized local goods like Florentine leather, enjoy fine Tuscan cuisine, or enjoy one of our exclusive visits to a private Palazzo or the Terraces of the Duomo.
