Your day-by-day itinerary

Arrival Florence

Arrive in old Florence and straight away you’ll feel its history and prestige all around you. During the Renaissance, wealthy Italian bankers invested heavily here to create wide avenues and large squares with palazzi and statues by artists such as Michelangelo. You will sleep in a characteristic hotel in the centre of Florence, just a few minutes’ walk from the cathedral square. The garden of the hotel is a peaceful place if you want to avoid the hustle and bustle of the city.
