What Florence (FLR) has to offer

Your flight to Florence: birthplace of Renaissance

Tuscany, Italy’s centre of renaissance art and culture: Florence is at the heart of this astonishing time when Medieval Italy rediscovered the writings of the Greek and Roman world and surpassed them inside of two generations. In Florence, which some call an open-air museum of Renaissance Architecture, you can walk around town and bump into world-famous buildings or artwork behind every corner. The famous cathedral Santa Maria del Fiore with Brunelleschi’s unique Dome on top and Giotto’s bell tower is certainly the most visible of the world famous artworks.

Art is all around

Other must-see masterworks are the church Santa Maria Novella, the medieval Palazzo Vecchio, the Medici Palace and the Pitti Palace with its beautiful Boboli Gardens. The grandeur of the town was mostly paid for by the rich merchant families, with the Medici firmly at the top. They commissioned a famous piece of art: Michelangelo’s “David”, the enormous marble statue embodying the spirit of renaissance and the power of the Florence’s ruling family. But you can also see Botticelli’s “Birth of Venus” on display at the Uffizi Gallery. In the same gallery, once the administration’s office spaces and part of a network of secret walkways for the Medici’s, Leonardo da Vinci's “Annunciation” is another prominent highlight. Leonardo Da Vinci spent most of his life in Florence. See the museum where replicas of his inventions are on display, from tank to helicopter to early robots. The collection of genius in this town also included Gallileo Gallilei, Dante Alighieri, Giovanni Boccaccio, Niccolò Machiavelli and many more.

Great food and ancient traditions

Many culinary delights are waiting for you in Florence as well, the local traditions are about as famous as the artworks. Even though the pizza and pasta will be delicious, there is much more to experience. Bistecca alla Fiorentina or Arista alla Fiorentina are such a local specialties, enjoy it together with the great wines from the famous Chianti vineyards. On the Ponte Vecchio, the old bridge, jewelers live and work in houses build on the bridge itself, one of the last lived-on bridges in Europe. For some historical entertainment, watch the renaissance sport calcio storico or historical football on Florence’s central Piazza Santa Croce. It used to be played by the nobility after church in their Sunday outfits and usually results in many broken bones and crunched noses. A former rival city of Florence was Siena, home of the oldest bank in the world. It is a short train ride away and really worth the trip: here you can watch the Palio, a traditional horserace without saddles on the Piazza del Campo on July 2nd and August 16th. This tradition dates back to renaissance times and is the main event for locals and tourists alike. You can have a great holiday between exceptional art, living traditions and wonderful food. Have fun in Florence!
