Before you travel to Florence by train - good to know!

The Duomo that sits at the heart of Florence is an amazing sight, covered in white and green marble. Incredibly, its red-bricked dome was not completed for 150 years following the building of the main structure. Today, visitors flock from all over the world to see Fillippo Brunelleschi’s masterpiece, and it has become the symbol of Florence. Not far from the Duomo is the Basilica di San Lorenzo. Filled with frescoes and sculptures, it houses the tombs of many Medici family members. Visitors should be aware that a number of Florence’s churches, art museums and palaces use a timed ticket entrance system. Because of its connection with the history of banking, Florentine tours dedicated to this theme are available from private operators. The majority of these tours encompass the city’s art and architectural heritage. Shoppers can seek high-quality fashion goods on the Via Tornabuoni, while excursions to the nearby towns of Fiesole and Settignano are among many Tuscan tours on offer.

The entire journey from London to Florence takes approximately 14 hours.

Florence

Florence is one of Italy's most famously beautiful renaissance cities, and it's a particularly great destination for art enthusiasts. Galleria degli Uffizi is one of the world's most famous fine art museums, and Bargello houses works by some of the world's greatest sculptors, including Michaelangelo. Pay a visit to Duomo di Firenze, the historic and beautiful central Cathedral for Florence, and the nearby Giotto's Tower, both of which offer magnificent views of the city and the surrounding area. For something a little bit different, walk in the footsteps of Dan Brown's Robert Langdon by taking an organised Inferno Tour of the city.
