Enchanting hills

Florence lies in the region of Tuscany, which is famous for its beautiful, colourful and enchanting landscapes. The landscape of Florence is hilly for the most part. The southern hills in the area of Chianti are covered in vineyards as far as the eye can see; in the north and east the hills reveal the Apennine Mountains. The river Arno flows through the hills of Tuscany and originates on Monte Falterona in the Apennine Mountains.

Age-old Florence

The river Arno flows through the most important city in the Metropolitan City of Florence, Florence. The sights in Florence, which were under the rule of the powerful De Medici family, are countless. It is therefore impossible to name them all, however here are a number of tips to give you a brief overview of the possibilities.

  • Museums
    Florence is a city of museums. You can behold works by the great masters of Medieval and Renaissance art in the Galleria degli Uffizi. Florence also has the Musei dei Rigazzi di Firenze, which is perfect for children. The Musei dei Rigazzi di Firenze will entertain your children with a particularly special history lesson, which can include humorous plays, playful tours and quests to find the secret entrances of the palace.
  • Duomo di Firenze
    The Basilica di Santa Maria del Fiore towers high above everything and everyone in Florence. This cathedral is simply known as 'the cathedral' and is famous for its unusual dome. The dome, which was designed by architect Brunelleschi in the 15th century, is made from two separate domes which are constructed over each other.
  • De Santa Croce basilica
    The Santa Croce basilica is an impressive church, which is not far from the cathedral. Here you can visit the graves of famous Italians, such as Michelangelo, Galileo and Machiavelli.

Florence still has a lot to offer even if you are not planning to visit all of the museums and palaces. There are squares and parks where your children can enjoy themselves, many sandwich bars where you can put together your own fresh sandwich, and authentic Italian ice cream cafés. You can always manage an ice cream!
