Florence - Holiday Tour Packages from India
A playground for the artist, art lovers, and even the artsy individuals, Florence has an abundance of museums, churches and palaces that feature some of the finest and most impressive artistic treasures. From the Bargello to Uffizi, be inspired by the creativity and artistry that you can find in and around Florence.
For around 250 years, Florence was the most important city in Europe, what with it being the birthplace of Italian Renaissance, and the source of gold florin, the currency that pulled Europe out of the Dark Ages. With a history like this, expect your holiday in this city to be anything but lacklustre. And, without a doubt, sightseeing & activities would be as colourful as a masterpiece on a canvas.
Top places to visit in Florence
Museums will always find their way in holiday packages to Florence. Because some of them are within proximity of each other, visiting them should be part of your travel itinerary. You should also head out to the old town centre where historical landmarks and features can be found.
For an interesting acquaintance with some of the statues in Florence, visit the Piazza Signora where you will find the Fake David and other statues. This is also where you will find the Florence Town Hall and the Romanesque Fortress within the plaza.
Top things to do in Florence
Unlike other holiday destinations, sightseeing & activities in Florence is a mix of arts and sports-related fun, depending on what you fancy doing at the moment. At one time, you can climb the Duomo or Campanile, a famous bell tower in the city that gives you the best views of Florence, including the Tuscan countryside. Or you can engage in stand up paddling to see the beauty of the city from the water.
To enjoy a live performance without spending a lot on tickets, watch the street performers work their magic in front of the Palazzo Vecchio by the Uffizi. And while you're at it, enjoy a cup of gelato. If your idea of a vacation includes wellness treatment, enjoy the thermal waters of Impruneta spring, which has been used to treat skin allergies, and respiratory, liver and gastrointestinal diseases. You can also explore Florence ala Robert Langdon in Angels and Demons, when you sign up for an Inferno Tour. But one of the best ways to truly experience Florence is to let its magic wrap around you and maybe cast a spell or two.
Top attractions in Florence
There are plenty of places of interest in Florence, but a few always make it to holiday packages to the city.

- Ponte Vecchio - Italy is a photogenic travel destination, but nothing is most photographed than the Ponte Vecchio Bridge. The best time to take pictures is during night time when lights give the bridge an almost ethereal appeal.
- The Uffizi Gallery - Located off the Piazza della Signoria, this art museum is one of the greatest in the world, with its collection of amazing Renaissance art done by the Masters themselves – Botticelli, Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo and Titian.
