Getting There:

Florence is well-connected with the rest of Italy and with Europe in general, so it is relatively easy to get to by air or land.

Main airport is Vespucci Airport and over the past few years there has been significant increase in traffic in and out of the airport, so the infrastructure and facilities are constantly being upgraded.

Florence is also a key destination on the Italian railway network, with good connections between the main cities in the north, while to the south Rome is only about an hour and a half away.

If you are hiring a car in Italy, then the A1 motorway, which is the main road artery linking the north and south of the country, runs past Florence, which has four exits.

 

This city filled with towering cathedrals and exquisite art, you only have to think of names such as Botticelli, Michelangelo, da Vinci, and more to be inspired. From Florence, you also have access to the Tuscan countryside where you can wash down delicious seasonal cuisine with standout Chianti wineries.  Travellers flock here all year round for good reason.
