Located in the heart of Italy, Florence is a treasure chest of art, history, and culture. This city, also known as the 'Cradle of the Renaissance', boasts an architectural heritage that has remained virtually intact since the 14th century. Its compact historic center, declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO, seems to be designed for exploration on foot. However, traveling by car also offers unique opportunities to discover Florence's gems.
The Uffizi Gallery is a must-see stop on any trip to Florence. Located in the city center, this impressive museum hosts works by great masters such as Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo, and Botticelli – to name just a few. However, it's not only the city's centre that captivates visitors. Driving out to the Tuscan countryside, travelers can reach medieval towns like Siena – about 90 km away – or visit the leaning tower in Pisa, which is less than 80 km from Florence.
The surroundings of Florence are equally remarkable. The Chianti region, known worldwide for its wine production, is barely 30 km away. Some of the most beautiful Italian landscapes can be admired from the Chiantigiana road, a wine and food road that begins in Florence and winds its way through the best of Tuscan vineyards and olive groves. Those interested in Christian art and history, can take their car to ascend the Monte Giovi and reach Camaldolese Hermitage, a serene and spiritual place less than 60 km from Florence.
