The 'Cradle of the Renaissance' - not a bad strapline for a
city, and one that Florence richly deserves. The Tuscan capital has
long drawn British visitors to its culture filled streets. With its
magnificent Duomo, Uffizi gallery and the Ponte Vecchio, Florence
is quite simply one of the world's finest open air museums. There
is also plenty of contemporary sights to enjoy on a holiday to this
magnificent city, including some excellent restaurants and some of
Italy's coolest new hotels.
