Florence: the epitome of timeless class.

The city's elegance is evident in everything from churches and cuisine to couture.

Largely unchanged since Renaissance times, the muted ochre and taupe palazzi flanking the Arno River emit an other-worldly kind of nostalgia. Then there are the iconic museums rich with treasures... not to mention the eye-popping architecture.

 

But where to stay?

Where to eat?

What to do (if you only have twenty-four hours)?

We've got you covered.

Stay Central 

Make sure your hotel or Airbnb is located in the 'historical city center' of Florence so you can walk everywhere easily. (And bring comfy shoes for those cobblestones!)

Shopping

Florence is full of fantastic boutiques and to-die-for markets. Be sure to save room in your suitcase for all your purchases. Or better yet, just carry-on and bring an extra bag with you to check on your way back.
