    Fantastical Florence

    In a flourish of Renaissance beauty unattained by any other city before it, Florence bursts forth from the meanders of the Arno River. Flush with Florentine architecture _ that grand Duomo, that jutting Ponte Vecchio _ and chock-full of priceless relics, you can be gasping at Galileo's Tomb one moment and gawping at Michelangelo's David the next. The world-famous Uffizi Gallery flaunts masterworks by da Vinci, Durer, Caravaggio, Botticelli _ the list goes on. Tales of powerful Medici ooze from the stucco of the great palazzos, while Florence vacation rentals nestle between cobbled lanes and Italian cafes.

    Art lovers assemble in Florence

    There a few cities picked over by culture vultures more than Florence. When it comes to tracing the rich traditions of the High Renaissance, it's nothing short of a gold mine. Relics of Galileo hide in the museums, and the grand outlines of the Palazzo Vecchio conceal some of the most priceless works of sculpture on Earth. Sightseeing is more of the same _ the tag team of Giotto's Campanile and the Duomo are considered masterstrokes of the Italian Renaissance. Bag Florence vacation rentals in Santa Croce or along the Arno banks to be in the middle of it all.

    World-famous galleries in Florence

    Start with the Uffizi. The Birth of Venus, Adoration of the Magi, Caravaggio's Medusa _ it's all there. Filled with biblical visions and Renaissance symbolism, you can balance the lot out with a jaunt through the thingamabobs and gadgets of the Institute and Museum of the History of Science. Galileo's own telescope's there, next to centuries-old planetary graphs and sparking Van de Graaff generators. For a glimpse of Michelangelo's David, the Accademia Gallery is a must, while a menagerie of other priceless sculpture awaits at the Bargello.

    From summer to winter in Florence

    Those Tuscan summers are hard to resist. Mercury rises to the 80s and 90s from May to October, and it's the perfect time to seek out luxurious Florence vacation rentals with pools and cypress-spotted gardens in the nearby hills. But this glorious city is packed with art and heritage that doesn't follow any seasonal pattern. You can settle in cozy flats in the winter to visit the Uffizi Gallery when less people are crowding the rooms, or come in spring for a balance between warmth and affordable accommodation rates.

    Florence sits huddled in the Tuscan hills

    Florence huddles in a handsome valley on the westward foot of the Tuscan Apennines. The hills rise and fall on the horizon, undulating as they host those picturesque hamlets and stretches of vineyard. The Arno River wiggles right through the heart of the town center, flowing westwards through the green valleys to the Med. South of here is the gorgeous wine-growing region of Chianti. The Florence vacation rentals there come with enticing pools and cypress-shaded gardens, and access to highland hiking routes through the very heart of Italy.
