Luxury Florence Holidays
Florence holidays encompass the art, architecture and culture that this stylish city is steeped in. Dominating the skyline, as it has done since its completion in the 15th century, is the Basilica di Santa Maria del Fiore or Duomo, as it is commonly known. This is Europe's fourth largest cathedral and it is justly many peoples starting point on their exploration of Florence. From here, meandering cobbled lanes lead to the Piazza della Signoria and its famous Palazza Vecchio, Florence's Romanesque town hall. A trip to Florence, the birthplace of the renaissance, would be incomplete without a visit to the Uffizi Gallery which houses the world's largest collection of renaissance masterpieces including Botticelli's 'Birth of Venus'. And the area's attractions are not limited to the city centre; Florence is a fantastic base from which to explore the beautiful surrounding Tuscan countryside. Whatever your choice during your Florence holiday, be sure to end at least one day watching the sunset from the Ponte Vecchio before sampling some wonderful traditional Tuscan cuisine.
