Florence Highly Recommended Highly Recommended Highly Recommended : Michelin's recommendations


The home of Dante (father of the Italian language), the city of the Medici (patrons of the arts and literature) and a melting pot of humanist art, Florence occupies a magnificent setting best viewed from the Fiesole or San Miniato hills. The panorama takes in the red cupola of the Duomo, the white and green marble Giotto campanile and the stone bell tower of the Palazzo Vecchio, as well as the Arno river, the medieval Ponte Vecchio and the ochre- and grey-coloured palaces of the city.
