Hostelling International Tripbook for

Florence

9 Entries

In the early modern period, Florence, Italy, was the heart of the Italian Renaissance. Immortal masterpieces such as Michelangelo’s David, da Vinci’s Annunciation, and Botticelli’s Birth of Venus can be found in the city’s art galleries, such as The Uffizi and the Accademia Gallery, which still hold the antique gems this city has produced. Today, Florence is a city that oozes style and sophistication and is packed with high-end fashion and jewellery stores. Your hostel-stay doesn’t have to include visiting designer boutiques and dining in five-star restaurants, however. Florence has over 80 museums, churches packed with fine art, remarkable historic architecture, and the stunning Boboli Gardens. Visit the enthralling Duomo – this Gothic high-domed cathedral was built in the 13th century and from its roof, it offers incredible panoramic views of Florence. When night falls, head to Fló Lounge Bar which is located in the scenic square, Piazzale Michelangelo.
