Florence Bed and Breakfasts

The jewel of renaissance Italy, Florence remains today a city of timeless beauty. Medieval streets are lined with high-fashion boutiques and centuries-old palazzi , while a picture-perfect skyline includes such iconic architectural treasures as the Basilica di Santa Croce, Giotto’s Campanile and Burneschelli’s Dome.

Florence has been the inspirational home of some of history’s most prominent artists; Michelangelo, da Vinci, Botticelli and Donatello all left their mark on the city, and their works still hang in renowned galleries such as the Uffizi, the Pitti and the Accademia.

The result of this illustrious history is an almost-tangible air of creativity through which modern-day Florentines move with effortless style.

Fine Tuscan cuisine is another of Florence’s great assets; deceptively simple ingredients yield exquisite flavours, complimented by a glass or two of the region’s excellent Chiantis.

A city which never fails to impress, Florence makes an excellent base for exploring the  region of Tuscany. Take a day trip to Siena, Pisa or Lucca, or simply lose yourself in the beautiful Tuscan countryside.
