Discover Florence

Via Doccia 4, 50014 Fiesole, Florence, Italy

If you’re wondering where to stay in Tuscany, Florence is a must. The city radiates magnetic power—a palpable energy steeped in drama and legend. Much of this is down to the Medici family, who ruled here for centuries. Florence is a love-letter to their artistic, scientific and architectural patronage.

Arrive here and you won’t be able to resist delving deeper. Il Duomo, the Uffizi Gallery and Ponte Vecchio are all within easy walking distance of each other. The adventure is in finding your way through the city's narrow, cobbled streets. Villa San Michele sits high in the hills of scenic Fiesole, overlooking the city. From here, the birthplace of the Renaissance unfolds seductively at your feet.

Destination Guide: Unlock Florence

It’s been well over a century since Florence spent a brief five-year spell as Italy’s capital. Today, Rome may take centre stage but Tuscany’s beating heart has never felt so captivating. While the city has one foot rooted in Renaissance splendour, the other strides out into a future filled with some of the world’s finest food, music and fashion.
