Top visits

Uffizi Gallery

One of the world’s finest art galleries which features all the great names of the Florentine Renaissance. Includes paintings by Piero della Francesca, Leonardo da Vinci, Botticelli, Giotto, Raphael, Titian and Caravaggio. There is a whole room dedicated to Michelangelo and the 16th century.

Basilica de Santa Maria Novella

Ranking second only to Santa Croce in the list of great Florentine churches, and housing some important frescoes such as Masaccio’s Trinita (1428), this church stands proud in motifs and scrolls made out of green and white marble.

Cappelle Medici

The Medici’s private chapels and mausoleum feature several of Michelangelo’s most outstanding pieces of Florentine funerary sculpture.

Piazza della Signoria

The original location of Michelangelo’s David. Sights include the Palazzo Vecchio, the Uffizi Gallery and an outdoor gallery sheltering several outstanding pieces of sculpture.

Piazzale Michelangelo

For spectacular panoramic views of Florence and the Arno Valley, a visit to Piazzale Michelangelo is a must. Designed in 1869 by Florentine architect Giuseppe Poggi, Piazzale Michelangelo is a popular spot with locals and tourists.

Ponte Vecchio

Dating back to the 14th century, pupils will marvel at its tiny jewellery shops, and how perilously they’re perched on a narrow river crossing. The unique Vecchio is one of the most photographed bridges in Europe.

The Boboli Gardens

The Boboli gardens are one of the greatest open-air museums in Florence.  With centuries-old oak trees, sculptures and fountains, the Boboli gardens are a must visit.

Leaning Tower of Pisa

Begun in 1173 as a companion piece for the city’s Duomo and Baptistry, the tower began to lean almost from the outset. A must for any group visiting Florence.

Santa Maria del Fiore, Battistero & Campanile

Elegant architecture, exemplifying the roots of the Renaissance. The Baptistry building represents a direct link between the Golden Age and Rome. The bell tower, built by Giotto, is decorated with statues and reliefs. Other architects have picked up this theme from the campaniles, and doorways are magnificently Gothic-clad in green, red and white marble.

Duomo

Central Florence is dominated by the splendid Piazza del Duomo, and, at its centre, the Duomo, the city’s cathedral. Climb to the top of the dome for a fabulous bird’s-eye view of the city.

Coach excursion to Pisa or Lucca

Choose to visit Pisa and view the world-famous leaning tower or Lucca, renowned for the well-preserved Renaissance walls encircling its historic city centre and its cobblestone streets.
