Take a stroll through the serene and colourful palaces of Palazzo Pitti or Palazzo Vecchio. And fill your day with museums to suit every interest, and numerous places of interest in Florence. Experience Florence and then why not finish your city break with a tour through the mellow Tuscan countryside.
The Uffizi is probably one of the best known sights in Florence. As part of a city break to the most beautiful city in Tuscany, a trip to this world famous museum is not to be missed. It is here the nobility of the Medici dynasty assembled a large collection of the most notable masterpieces of their time. More than 1000 pieces are on display in almost 50 rooms. Many are unaware that the Medici not only collected pictures but also numerous sculptures, tapestries, historical maps and other precious items from the Renaissance period. These can also be admired in the well-lit rooms of the Uffizi. The most impressive building complex is reached via the Palazzo Vecchio; you cannot miss it.
Florence is not only famous for its art, museums, palaces and cathedrals, but also enjoys an outstanding culinary reputation around the world. The cuisine from the region around Florence draws you in with its combination of rural traditional cuisine and urban sophistication. Typically, the small restaurants around and about offer grilled game and meat specialities promising a unique and enjoyable culinary experience. The outstanding cheese – pecorino – is also produced here. And for those with a sweet tooth, it will be hard to resist the sweet pastries and baked goods such as dolci, cantuccini and ricciarelli. And, as a sought-after souvenir, you shouldn’t return to Germany without one of the outstanding organic olive oils – keeping some of that holiday atmosphere alive when you are back home.
