FLORENCE

Overview

Florence is the capital of Tuscany and is the region’s most popular city. Incredibly rich in monuments, museums and churches, the entire city centre was recorded in the list of World Heritage Sites by UNESCO.

From the 14th to 16th centuries Florence rose to become one of the most important cities in Europe. Exceptional artists, architects and writers such as Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo and Botticelli helped transform Florence into the heart of the Renaissance. Places of interest include; the Uffizi Gallery, Accademia Gallery (home to Michelangelo’s statue of ‘David’), the Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore and the famous landmark of Ponte Vecchio.

This beautiful region will also be an inspirational location that will stimulate all music groups from bands and choirs to orchestras. On a visit to this delightful area, relax in the resplendent Boboli Gardens with their antique statues, grottoes and magnificent fountains.
