    Be wowed by Florence

    Florence is a place to be wowed. In the centre, cobbled streets weave and wind past a handsome Duomo of ivory-hued marble and vaulted towers. The colourful Ponte Vecchio arches over the snaking Arno river. Tiny piazzas are packed with coffee shops and ice-cream stands. Every turn of every corner promises something to take the breath away – Michelangelo's David here, the world-famous Uffizi Gallery there. Florence holiday rentals can be charming city flats or deluxe villas with pools and views up in the rising Tuscan hills. Take your pick.

    Lost in Florence's streets

    You'll instantly see why Florence is a UNESCO site. Its medieval-come-Renaissance heart is a web of lanes and arches, tight-knit piazzas and alleys of cobblestone, all converging on great squares where churches, famous sculptures and babbling fountains erupt from the marble. Get lost there. It's a real joy. Street tours and guided walks are available to help you make sense of all the heritage you'll pass along the way. And there's no shortage of authentic Italian trattorias and cafes to settle in when lunchtime swings around – a Tuscan pappa al pomodoro soup, perhaps?

    Florence is for the gallery goers

    Giving even Rome a run for its money on the museum front, Florence offers everything from Renaissance wonders to scientific curiosities in its exhibitions. The Uffizi should always be top of the list. Queues will snake around the block in the summer, with people eager to catch a glimpse of da Vinci's Adoration of the Magi or Botticelli's The Birth of Venus – and that's naming just 2. The nearby Museum of the History of Science offers something different with its early electrical generators and telescopes, while the Galleria dell'Accademia is home to the iconic statue of David by Michelangelo.

    Finding Florence as you like it

    Relaxation is easy to come by between the Mediterranean cypress trees and Tuscan hills in the summer. There are plenty of Florence holiday rentals with pools close to the city that can offer peace and quiet away from the bustling city – just be sure to visit between June and August for the hottest temperatures and most sun. If you're coming solely for a city break and a glimpse at the iconic artworks and Duomo, then any time of year is fine. Winter, from November to March, can be frosty and cold, while spring and autumn are great for dodging the crowds.

    Views of rivers and hills in Florence

    It might not seem like it as you wander the cobbled streets of the centre, but Florence isn't short of parks. Hike the steep roads up to the Boboli Gardens and sweeping views of the Arno valley and the town will unfold before you. Once you've admired the panorama, you can wander through the topiary and bee-buzzing flower beds to escape for a moment. Alternatively, you could simply look for a Florence holiday rental in the nearby Tuscan hills. They rise to meet the Apennine mountains in the east, or roll down to the vineyards of Chianti, all dotted with cypress rows and rustic farms.
