Discover Italy’s dreamiest city while staying in Inspirato’s Florence accommodations. One of our most incredible homes in all of Europe, La Limonaia is close to the Duomo and Accademia and features a private backyard with its own pool—a rarity in Florence. Lusso Moderno is our largest Florentine villa, an urban oasis with eclectic and modern interior design. La Dafne is a historic three-bedroom residence near the Arno River featuring 18th-century frescoes and authentic Bauhaus furnishings. Baglioni Relais Santa Croce and Rocco Forte’s Hotel Savoy are both within walking distance to popular Florence attractions.
Florence moves at a slower pace than Rome or Venice, which only enhances its dreaminess. As the birthplace of the Renaissance, the city is perhaps most famous for its artwork—stand before world-famous works by Michelangelo, da Vinci, Botticelli, Titian, and more. Visit the Accademia Gallery to see the exquisite sculpture of Michelangelo's David and his unfinished Prisoners. Shop artisanal Italian leather goods in Piazza San Lorenzo. Enjoy fresh gelato on a sidewalk cafe. There’s no better place to catch the sunset than the hilltop Piazzale Michelangelo; pack a picnic, settle in, and enjoy the lively conversation around you as the sun sets over the city.
Don’t miss this Gothic cathedral, the most important in all of Florence, with its hand-painted facade and matching belltower. Trek to the top for stunning 360-degree views of Florentine rooftops, Arno River, and the dome.
The oldest bridge in Florence, Ponte Vecchio has spanned the Arno River since the days of the ancient Roman empire. Today, it hosts a collection of artisanal and jewelry shops built along its edges and suspended by stilts.
One of the finest Renaissance art museums in the world, the Uffizi was founded through a large bequest from the last member of the Medici family. The Uffizi is located on the Piazza della Signoria in the center of Florence.
