Plunge into the history of Florence
The UNESCO declared the historic centre of Florence a World Heritage Site in 1982 due to its rich culture regarding Renaissance art and architecture. For that reason alone a trip to Florence is already worth your time. Stroll through the buzzling alleys, sip fresh cappuccino in one of the many cafes around the piazzas of the city and inspect all the historic buildings giving the city its unique charm.
Being home to the world famous Uffizi Gallery located at the Piazza della Signoria Florence is a real Mecca for any art lover. Here you have the chance to marvel at master pieces such as Rembrandt's Self-portrait as a Young Man, Hugo van der Goes' Portinari Triptych or Paolo Uccello's The Battle of San Romano. You could probably spent weeks in Florence without seeing everything the city has to offer. Fortunately, SWISS offers cheap flights from Birmingham to Florence at any time of the years!
