Rome to Florence Day Trips

Cheap Florence Day trips from Rome

The birthplace of the Renaissance and the capital city of the Italian region of Tuscany, Florence is a stunning and utterly irresistible center of medieval European trade and finance. It is one of the wealthiest cities of that era and known as “the Athens of the Middle Ages”. The Historic Center of Florence was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1982. It possesses a treasure of medieval chapels, palaces, world-class art museums and galleries, such as the Uffizi Gallery and the Palazzo Pitti, wonderful churches, and astonishing monuments and architecture.

Italy is famous for its fashion and Florence is ranked in the top 15 fashion capitals of the world, because the fashion industry was born and bred here. Back in the 1920’s, homegrown designers Guccio Gucci and Salvatore Ferragamo opened the first haute-couture boutiques.

Surrounded by wine-rich hills, Florence is a traditional gourmet paradise where ribollita, a tripe panino or a blue T-bone steak and homemade wine are the symbols and trademarks of the ancient city.

Things to Do in Florence

The gallery houses Renaissance masterpieces by world-famous artists such as Michelangelo and Leonardo da Vinci. Here you can also see the finest work of Boticcelli, “Birth of Venus".

2. Piazzale Michelangelo

You can see the grandiose works by Michelangelo, the famous sculpture of “David”, that stands 17 feet tall, the best work by Botticelli, “Madonna and child”, the unique works by Leonardo Da Vinci and many other historic works.

4. The Basilica of Santa Maria del Fiore

The famous Duomo with its 463 steps gives a magnificent view of the whole city. It was the largest building in the world until 1881 and it’s the highest point in central Florence. If you like to discover classical artworks, then you should probably know that just next door is the Opera Duomo Museum.

5. Ponte Vecchio

Built at the narrowest point of the river Arno, Ponte Vecchio is an important landmark and the most famous bridge in the city. This bridge was built by Vasari for Duke Cosimo I de‘Medici in 1565 and it’s the main route that connects Palazzo Vechio with Pitti Palace.

6. Santa Croce

Do you like to taste the best Italian cuisine or maybe purchase the best fashion pieces? Well, this is the right place where you will find both. Centered on the church where Machiavelli, Michelangelo and Galileo were buried, Santa Croce has the best restaurants, exquisite fashion stores and vibrant nightlife.

7. Piazza San Spirito

A home of the best markets, bars and restaurants, Piazza San Spirito will give you a taste of the cosmopolitan city life. Here you will find some of the cheapest restaurants in town. Just cross the river and you are at the right place where you can enjoy the peacefulness of the churches, or sit on the steps and watch the people walking.

8. Boboli gardens

One of the greatest open-air museums in Florence well-known as the example of “green architecture”, Boboli Gardens, inspired many European Royal gardens. They are decorated with sculptures, old oak trees, fountains and offer peaceful shelter from the sun in summer. In spring you can smell the blooming flowers and in autumn you can enjoy the beautiful colors of the changing foliage.

9. Mercato Centrale

You are in a mood for shopping or you like to spend some cash? Then this is the place for you. The San Lorenzo Market, known as Mercato Centrale, is the best place where you can spend the day buying some local ingredients or maybe a souvenir to bring home. The market is separated in two parts and in the hundreds of stalls you can find pottery, notebooks, souvenirs, clothing and different leather goods such as wallets, belts, jackets, or bags.

10. Lunch in San Lorenzo

Try the local delicacy and enjoy the best abomasum sandwich called “panino con lampredotto”. You can find lampredotto stalls near every important square in the city. But if you want pizza then taste the traditional Neapolitan pizza, famous “mozzarella di bufala” that is still prepared in the traditional way, as it is still made in Southern Italy today.
