Travel to Florence on Vacation

Plan a vacation to Florence with Tourlane and you’ll discover the birthplace of the Renaissance, and one the most beautiful cities in the world. This UNESCO World Heritage site delights visitors with its world-class art galleries, distinctive architecture, and unique history: Florence was its own republic for more than 400 years. If you’re looking to plan a multi-stop tour of Italy, be sure to consider Florence and Tuscany, the surrounding region of which Florence is the capital. With Tourlane, it’s possible to book your flights, transfers, accommodations, and guides, all in one place.

What to Do in Florence

1. Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore

If you’re interested in architecture and religion, then be sure to visit Florence’s Duomo, the Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore. This striking cathedral that towers 400 feet above the city dates back to the 13th century, and boasts the largest brick dome ever built. You’ll be impressed by its decadent pink and white marble exterior, which perfectly reflects Florence’s rich and prosperous past. If you’re feeling energetic, there is the option to climb 463 steps to the top of the cathedral. 

2. Ponte Vecchio

One of the most charming features of the Florence skyline is the iconic Ponte Vecchio, the oldest bridge in the city. This medieval arch bridge is unusual in that it is entirely covered, meaning visitors are able to walk across the river without going outside. Inside the bridge, you’ll find a mini village, with a range of boutiques selling many art and jewelry, as well as residences where people still live to this day. 

3. Galleria dell'Accademia

If you’re interested in art and the Renaissance which Florence is so famous for, then a visit to the Galleria dell'Accademia is a must. Home to Michaelangelo’s David, a sculpture produced by the famous Italian sculptor who originated from the Republic of Florence, the gallery is one of the most popular attractions in Venice. We recommend booking in advance to reduce queueing time. Speak to your Tourlane Travel Expert for more information. 

4. The Boboli Gardens

For a nice stroll outdoors, head to the Boboli Gardens, which sit on a hill adjacent to Florence. Originally designed for the Medici family that ruled the city, the gardens were later opened to the public. With the perfectly kept greenery and impressive Renaissance statues, the Boboli Gardens exude elegance, and inspired many other Italian-style gardens around Europe that have been opened since.  Less
