A Long Weekend in Florence

City: Florence

Date: February 2016, 4 nights

Accommodation: Hotel Rapallo (3*. Review down below!)

E&J’s travel tips:

  • Fly to Pisa to save money on flights.  Coach it from Pisa airport to Florence for €5.99 p.p each way. Get tickets here
  • Check opening dates and times of all attractions! Many had days closed in the week
  • Take a train to Pisa for €8.40 p.p return to see The Leaning Tower of Pisa, but don’t expect to do much else there
  • Take a romantic stroll around Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore (the duomo) at night. Beautifully lit up.

The artwork we laid eyes on, the different flavours of gelato we tried, the endless walking along old streets and the views, cemented Tuscany Italy as a sure favourite of ours

Florence is a beautiful Tuscan city of great history, art, architecture, food and so much more.
