Birthplace of the Renaissance and Tuscany’s capital, the umber domes, bustling bridges and winding lanes of Florence have inspired artists, architects and visitors for centuries. A veritable treasure trove of masterpieces, the city flaunts its artistic heritage at every turn; museums, squares and alleyways overflowing with artistic prowess. Works by Botticelli, Raphael, Michelangelo can be found, encircled by admirers, in some of the world’s finest galleries and the gentle breeze and sweeping cityscapes visible from the top of the Duomo make one of Italy’s finest experiences. The surrounding hills ache with vineyards, meaning cellars abound with regional vintages. Truly, Florence is the perfect city for heady indulgence of all kinds.
