Location overview Italy is an extraordinary feast of heart-thumping, soul stirring art, food and landscapes. Being the epicentre of the Roman Empire and birthplace of the Renaissance, this place is filled with culture. You can stand in the presence of Michelangelo’s David, Sistine Chapel frescoes, Botticelli’s Birth of Venus, and Primavera, and Da Vinci’s Last Supper. Italy has more UNESCO world heritage cultural sites than any other country on Earth.

Florence, is a riverside city that is large on the world’s ‘must-see’ list – magnetic, romantic and busy. Its urban fabric has hardly changed since the Renaissance, its narrow streets evoke a thousand tales, and its food and wine are so wonderful the tag ‘Fiorentina’ has become an international label of quality assurance.

The best-known site of Florence is the domed cathedral of the city, Santa Maria del Fiore, known as The Duomo. The nearby Campanile (partly designed by Giotto) and the Baptistery buildings are also highlights. The dome, 600 years after its completion, is still the largest dome built in brick and mortar in the world. In 1982, the historic centre of Florence was declared a World Heritage Site by the UNESCO.
