If it's one of the most beautiful cities in the world you’re after then holidays in Florence are unmissable. The cultural capital of Italy is a treasure trove of Renaissance art and architecture. Florence holidays are an unforgettable adventure - fantastic for exploring famous monuments and museums like the towering Duomo cathedral, the bell tower by Giotto and stunning Ponte Vecchio bridge. The cobbled streets, heritage buildings turned boutique hotels, pizzerias baking delicious pizzas and shaded piazzas perfect for people-watching make holidays to Florence the perfect city-break for leisure (and treasure) seekers.

See World-Famous Sights

All of the major attractions on your Italian bucket list are within easy walking distance in Florence. Start with the awe-inspiring Duomo and the ancient Ponte Vecchio bridge then tour around the Basilica di Santa Maria Novella. The beauty of Florence is you'll always stumble upon shaded piazzas and pretty marketplaces where you can take a break. Ponte Vecchio, straddling the river Arno, has an old-world charm and is the place to go if you love jewellery. If you feel like exploring further head to Palazzo Vecchio,a spectacular 12th century palace fortress and town hall, where you can tour secret passages.

Art at the Uffizi Gallery

On the banks of the Arno River, the Uffizi Gallery is a major tourist attraction and said to be the first modern museum in Europe. An art lover’s delight, this gallery is the place to see masterpieces like Botticelli's Birth of Venus, Titian's Venus of Urbino and Raphael's Madonna of the Goldfinch. Take a guided tour or rent an audio guide, but allow at least an hour to explore all of its 45 treasure-filled halls. You can purchase tickets in advance from the museum website or opt for The Firenze Card – a handy museum entry pass that lets you skip the queues.

Visit the Boboli Gardens

Known as the 'green lung' of Florence these gorgeous gardens in the centre of the city, and behind the Pitti Palace, are one of the greatest open-air museums in Italy. A lovely change of scene from the hustle and bustle of Florence's busy streets and piazzas, you'll find an expanse of landscaped gardens and flowers. Dotted along the pathways are magnificent sculptures such as Giambologna's Bathing Venus and Isolotto, a spectacular fountain on an island. The gardens also offer spectacular views of the timeless city beneath.  

Sample Tuscan Cuisine

Tuscan cuisine is world-famous for its simple, fresh and delicious flavours, and the best place to sample it is at one of the numerous al fresco restaurants in Florence. Soak up the vibrant atmosphere by dining out in a piazza, perfect for a spot of people-watching. Fiaschetteria Nuvoli is famed for its delicious Florentine dishes and fine wine and Osteria Vini e Vecchi Sapori is a popular, family-run choice. Finish off your meal with a gelato from an ice-cream parlour or Torta di Nonno, a popular Italian tart from Caffe Rivoire.
