Florence has provided the idyllic backdrop to many a romantic movie, and it’s easy to see why. Around the tumbling Arno River magnificent feats of historic architecture vie for attention, proudly boasting treasured artworks by the Italian masters.

Take in breath-taking vistas from the splendid Renaissance dome of Florence Duomo. Relive the romantic encounter of Lucy Honeychurch and George Emerson in A Room With A View by the beautiful Ponte Vecchio Bridge, and share in the protagonists’ awe as you admire celebrated frescoes by Giotto and Gaddi inside the stunning Santa Croce Basilica. Then make your way to the world-renowned Galleria dell’Accademia to behold the sculptural majesty of Michelangelo’s David. Or sit back with a frothy cappucino at a pavement café and watch stylishly-attired Florentines saunter past. Gaze at the amber-gilded ripples of the Arno during a sunset stroll, then tuck into hearty Tuscan stew washed down with chilled Chianti.
