A true Italian love story
As the capital of Tuscany and the birthplace of the Renaissance, Florence is undeniably one of the most beautiful, cultural and romantic cities in Europe. Spend a weekend with your loved one in a Florence holiday apartment and take in the Italian culture in one of the many museums and at the famous Florence Cathedral – the “Duomo”.
Culture, Art & Romance
One of the most beautiful and romantic spots in the city is the Belmond Villa San Michele. Originally a monastery designed by Michaelangelo in the 15th Century, this incredible building overlooks the city of Florence with wonderful panoramic views of the surrounding, lush green countryside and is the perfect spot for an evening meal. In the centre of the city, stroll along the Arno River and visit the shops on the medieval “Ponte Vecchio” bridge. Visit the local restaurants down the quaint side streets, and don't leave without trying some traditional Italian gelato.
Whilst renting a Florence holiday apartment, spend the day wandering through the Boboli Gardens in the Pitti Palace.

Here, you can visit the Palatine Gallery, the Royal Apartments and the Gallery of Modern Art. The Porcelain Museum lies in the Boboli Gardens. With plenty of wine tasting tours, charming squares and architectural wonders, Florence holiday homes are an ideal spot to spend your romantic trip.
