In the Cradle of the Renaissance

The first things that likely come to mind when you think of Florence are great art and the Renaissance. And these complementary aspects are indeed reason enough to visit, with world-famous works by Michelangelo, da Vinci, Botticelli, Titian and many more. The capital city's ancient palaces, cathedrals, and lovely gardens also make it a great destination for wandering and sightseeing. With driving extremely limited, "The Cradle of the Renaissance" is also very pedestrian-friendly. For Inspirato Members, accommodations in the heart of the city, along with our Inspirato Service, make discovering the best of Florence a breeze.

Fresh Things To Do

Featured Activity


  • Launch to the Best of Italy

    With a spacious and comfortable Inspirato Residence in the heart of the city, and just a short distance from the rail station, Florence with Inspirato is also a launch point for amazing day trips. Here are three we recommend.

    Chianti Country. Your Destination Concierge can arrange a driver for a wine-tasting day trip, so what's holding you back? Just an hour away, Greve in Chianti is one of the few officially recognized Chianti-producing regions in all of Italy. Enjoy a private tasting, authentic food pairings and insights into wine at one of the many renowned wineries. One of our favorites is Monterinaldi in Radda.

    Pisa. Just 40 minutes or so by train, Pisa still feels like an entirely fresh look at Italy. The Leaning Tower (Torre Pendente) is a no-brainer, but strolling through the beautiful Campo dei Miracoli might be the highlight. Pisa is meant to be walked, and you'll want to visit the Duomo di Pisa, which houses artwork by Giambologna and Della Robbia, and the Battistero.

    Venice. The ride to Venice is closer to two hours, but you'll have a comfortable home to return to, so go ahead and discover the inimitable romance of the city the New York Times once called, "undoubtedly the most beautiful city built by man." Wander the alleyways looking for unique artisans; let a gondolier show you the city via canal; and gaze at the awe-inspiring ceiling art of the ancient marble churches.

  • Forecasting Your Florence Vacation

    Because Florence is located in a valley, the temperatures vary when compared to other areas in Tuscany. However, the weather in Florence is mild year round--with the summers warm and the winters cool. Similar to most destinations in Europe, many residents of Florence plan vacations in August, which then forces the closure of many shops and restaurants for a short period of time. No matter the time of year, Florence is always incredibly romantic, rain or shine.
