Province of Florence

The province of Florence is situated in the heart of Tuscany and has a lot to offer. It's rich in artistic and cultural heritage, surrounded by long-established traditions. There is a wide range of charming sights to choose from. 

The birthplace of Renaissance

Being Tuscany's regional capital, Florence is known as the "Home of Renaissance." It is, therefore, a place that has to be visited at least once by any culture lover. The historic center of Florence has been declared a World Heritage Site. The town is one of the most artistic in Italy. It offers art lovers boundless opportunities to appreciate masterpieces ranging from classical to contemporary. Visitors can admire its several museums, such as the Uffizi Gallery, and galleries like the Academy of Fine Art, which preserve artworks by many famous Italian masters. 

Tuscany’s artistic town

Prime landmark of the province of Florence, the delightful town of Impruneta is renowned the world over for its production of sacred terracotta art that decorates innumerable churches. It is also well known for its beautiful villas and gardens, including Villa Gamberaia, a fortress enclosed in an enormous park replete with exotic greenery, waterfalls and cypress trees. Fashionable among Europe's aristocracy in past centuries, the villa remains to this day one of the most idyllic settings in Tuscany. A fascinating array of religious festivities occur throughout the year, including a prominent Befana celebration or a May First Festival.

Blessing for wine lovers

The Chianti area is Tuscany's leading wine region. Located south of Florence, it's remarkable for its rolling hills and sun-drenched vineyards. These conditions make for excellent Sangiovese grapes –  the base ingredient in Chianti wines – as well as softer, fuller blends with Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon grapes. The area's cypress trees, silvery-green olive groves, sun-yellow poppy fields and undulating hills give it some of the most scenic scenery in all of Italy.
