Florence city guide

Florence, the capital of Tuscany region, Italy

Florence (Firenze in Italian) is nestled within the Tuscan region of northern Italy and surrounded by rolling vineyards and olive groves. Visitors are just as beguiled by the beauty of the city itself as they are by the paintings and sculptures found in its many museums. The city was home to many well-known artists, writers, explorers, and scientists. Amongst its most famous residents were Leonardo da Vinci, Donatello, Raphael, Michelangelo and Galileo. Famous for its rich history and considered as the birthplace of Renaissance the city is nowadays a popular tourist destination and is ranked as a UNESCO World heritage site. Many of Florence’s churches are works of art in themselves. The most famous of the city’s churches is the Santa Maria del Fiore, known simply as the Duomo.


Start your visit from the historic city centre, Piazza del Duomo, where the Baptistery and the cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore face each other. Built in the 13th century, the cathedral is a bold and majestic piece of architecture with a fantastic view over the city. It is Florence’s most recognisable symbol and glimpses of its majestic dome can be seen around nearly every corner of the city. On the façade side of the cathedral is the campanile of Giotto, which also has fine views of the city. In front of the Cathedral stands the older, Romanesque-style Baptistery of San Giovanni.

Walking along the lively Via dei Calzaiuoli, you will pass by Orsanmichele, a 14thcentury building that started out life as a granary. At the far end of Via dei Calzaiuoli you will arrive at the Piazza della Signoria, the political heart of the city. You can visit the museum in the Palazzo della Signoria, which is also home to the seat of Florence City Council. The interior courtyard has a magnificent fountain made by Verrocchio and its frescoes by Vasari. Near the Piazza della Signoria, is the imposing Uffizi Gallery. Designed by Vasari in the 16th century, it is now one of the most important museums in the world. The gallery contains paintings from early masters like Cimabue and Giotto. Continuing on from Ponte Vecchio, you will arrive to Piazza Pitti, which is dominated by the façade of the majestic Palazzo Pitti. Don’t miss the Accademia Gallery, to discover Michelangelo’s celebrated David.

The food in Florence is fresh and locally produced. Antipasto plates (before the meal) are the highlights, especially when served with a good Chianti (red Italian wine), and of course, pizza is served up in abundance as well.

Head towards Piazza Santo Spirito, where you can soak up the lively atmosphere of this corner of the city. The neighbourhood is packed with craft trades, and has a very authentic feel to it.

Customer reviews

  • "Excellent trip"    
    Very relaxing journey between Florence and Rome. The staff on the train were very helpful and polite and the train was on time at every point. Station facilities were excellent and booking the trip online was very straightforward.  
  • "Great train trip"    
    Easy, cheap and comfortable! This train from Bologna and Florence is extremely convenient and I would recommend it to anyone!  
  • "Easy "    
    Relaxed and enjoyed the scenery on the comfortable, high-speed trip Florence to Venice. Personnel were nice and helpful; train was on time and easy to board and exit.  
  • "Train from Florence to Milan"    
    The train is very clean and seats are comfortable. Most importantly, they are always very punctual. I realise it is cheaper to buy the ticket on-line before travel and not when you are there. The price difference can be quite great.  
  • "A wonderful experience"    
    my family travelled in comfort and style from Firenze to Roma in a business class, and I paid for the tickets from special offers months ago, and these are worth it !  
  • "firenze-paris overnight train"    
    The journey could have been much more comfortable had one of us not been allocated the lower couchette. It is impossible to get a good night's sleep when part of the bed protrudes. We brought this to the attention of the steward but there was nothing she could do. It is the design of the seat. Also the blind on the door window would not close so light was coming in from the corridor. The steward in the dining car tried twice to short change us at breakfast so remember to check your change.. However, we would take the train again as it is so much better than flying.  
  • "Flrence - Venice - Mestre - Mi"    
    Rail in Europe is a wonderful way to travel the trains on all our journeys were clean and prompt. The only point is at Mestre Station there is no lift to move your luggage as family we have 4 pcs of luggage that becomes a problem lugging it down and then up. The porter service is available but at a fee not base on personal gratuity. Otherwise a great way to travel  
  • "smooth trip good service"    
    The train from Padova to Plorence was clean and organizrd, very pleasant rip. I wish ther could be a way of knowing whether the seat faces forward or back when the reservation is made. I can not ride facing back  
  • "TORINO TO FLORENCE"    
    VERY COMFORTABLE EXCELLENT VALUE ON TIME  
  • "Train Journey"    
    The train journey was smooth and comfortable and one of the best way to enjoy the views of the country side. This is my second trip within 5 months from Rome to Florence by train and would do this again if ever I will be visiting Florence again  
  • "Rail trip from Firenze to Roma"    
    Getting to the train station in Firenze was a breeze as we were well connected by the bus services driving by directly outside the train station. The trains arrived a little behind time but since we were on holiday, that wasn't much bother. The journey on the train over all was smooth and without drama. The ride was comfortable and the view was quite nice. I will recommend the trains for a short distance as such. Its really quite a pleasure riding these high speed trains.  
  • "Milano-Firenze"    
    comfortable  
  • "Great Way to Travel"    
    The ride was smooth, the train left on time, and the stations are conveniently located. From what I could see, there were lots of trains. I wish that I hadn't rented a car out of Florence but instead had taken day trips by train to the Tuscany towns.  
  • "Fast train to Firenze"    
    very fast and comfy train ride. i appreciate the announcement for every stop.  
  • "Fun Trip"    
    we were very pleased with our trip between Rome and Florence. Seats were clean and comfortable. However, I would have expected that for first class we wouldn't have been restricted to one thimble size of espresso.
