Florence Attractions

Cradle of the Renaissance La Cittá Bella: Florence is known as many things but it’s never been known as boring. Perched in the heart of Italy this Tuscan capital blends historically important sights with an effortlessly modern style

and the range of Florence activities is a testament to its vibrant personality. Whether you’re interested in strolling the stylish streets or want to join one of the guided Florence tours this is a city that belongs on your must-travel map.

Begin your exploration of the best attractions in Florence with a peek at the Old Town. This district is home to some of the city’s most stunning tourist spots and both locals and travelers alike love the area for its historical importance. The Duomo di Firenze cathedral is the city’s primary landmark and you can head to the adjacent Giotto’s Tower for a magnificent view of the structure and its surroundings. The Santa Croce cathedral is another must see location — it’s here that you’ll find the tombs of Michelangelo Dante and Galileo — and its Pazzi Chapel offers an unbeatable look at classic architecture. Wherever you choose to explore first the Old Town is unquestionably the heart of the top things to do in Florence.

No Florence excursions are complete however with a peek at the local gardens and piazzas. Venture out to the Boboli Gardens for spectacular landscapes studded with sculptures and then head over to the Piazzale Michelangelo to enjoy the hilltop view and nearby San Miniato al Monte. The Piazza Signoria is an equally lovely place to spend an afternoon but this Romanesque square is substantially busier than the hillside spaces. Come to this area to admire the atmosphere from one of the surrounding cafes. It’s one of the top places to get a taste of the local personality.
