Day Trips to Florence
The Birthplace of the Renaissance, or popularly called the Athens of the Middle Ages, Florence is packed with enchanting architecture and is an irreplaceable part of tourism in Italy. Brace yourself for art and architecture masterpieces on every corner.
Art and Architecture Exhibits
You can choose to visit the Galleria dell’Academia, climb the Florence Duomo or visit the Leonardo Da Vinci Museum. The Palazzo Vecchio, Galleria Degli Uffizi, Museo di San Marco and Basilica de Santa Maria Novella are there if you want to explore more. The architecture of this Tuscan capital hasn’t changed much since the Renaissance period, so don’t miss out on its narrow cobbled streets, medieval chapels, marble churches, and fresco-decorated basilicas while you stroll around.
Tuscan chefs are some of the best in Italy and Florence is very proud of its unique cuisine. Everything is produced locally, sustainably, and seasonally, so you’re in for a treat. You can opt for a traditional bowl of ribollita – a bean, bread, and veggie soup, buy a tripe panino at a family-run food truck, or eat the renowned blue T-bone steak. Surrounded by wine hills, wine tasting in Florence is simply a must!
