Birthplace of the Renaissance, Florence (Firenze to the locals) dazzles with historic art and architecture melded with modern Italian charm. The Tuscan capital bursts with treasures of the past (Michelangelo, anyone?) but offers so much more than museums. Climb to the top of the Duomo’s bell tower for majestic views or contemplate the Medicis while strolling through Giardino di Boboli, the city’s grandest garden. The unparalleled experience that awaits you is one of luxury and history, combined to create an environment filled with modern comforts and awash in Italy’s romantic history.
