Located in the heart of Tuscany and among the "top walkable cities" of Europe, Florence is located in the center of Italy and its location allows easy access to other Italian cities. We suggest five simple itineraries to explore the wonders of the peninsula. Have a good trip!
Florence - RomeJust under two hours by train and you can reach the "Eternal City", splendid Rome. A walk along the Tiber river from Castel Sant'Angelo to Trastevere and then straight from the Fori Imperiali to the Colosseum. Rome is pure poetry! A must see: the Vatican museums, a real treasure trove that holds the most extraordinary works of art in the world.
Florence - Venice With its suggestive canals, Venice is a city unmatched anywhere in the world. From the gondola tour to a ride on the vaporetto, we suggest you to "sail" it far and wide to be pleasantly stunned by the majestic Piazza San Marco, the historic Palazzo Ducale, to the poetic bridges of Rialto and the Sighs. And don’t forget to stop by the Peggy Guggenheim!
Florence - Naples "Once you see Naples, you can die happy", as he saying goes. And Naples really leaves you breathless! From the view that embraces the Gulf; framed by the shape of Vesuvius, up to the walks on Spaccanapoli, which crosses the colorful and lively city center. And then, the Maschio Angioino and Piazza del Plebiscito. Word to the wise? Taste all local specialties, from pizza to pastries. You won’t regret it!
Florence - Ravenna In less than 30 minutes by train, you can reach the east coast of the peninsula. Here you’ll find an authentic jewel: Ravenna. Three times the capital of three empires - the Western Roman Empire, the Kingdom of the Ostrogoths and the Byzantine Exarchate - the city holds extraordinary masterpieces: the mausoleum of Galla Placidia and the basilicas of San Vitale, of Sant'Apollinare in Class, embellished with the most beautiful mosaics in the world.
Florence - Turin Not even two hours by train and you can reach Turin, the first capital of the Kingdom of Italy. From the Valentino park to the Reggia di Venaria, from the Egyptian museum to the Basilica of Superga, which dominates it from above, the city of Savoy offers countless ideas for tours and excursions in search of history and culture.
