Recommendations

  • Stroll along the Ponte Vecchio, the historic bridge that spans the river Arno. Take your time to pop in and out of the local shops and restaurants that line the main walkway, and pause to admire the fantastic views of the river.

  • A visit to the Cattedrale di Santa Maria del Fiore, more commonly called Il Duomo, is an essential part of any trip to Florence. The cathedral is Florence's most prominent landmark, looming over the city, and has the largest masonry dome in the world. This architectural masterpiece features the famous bronze doors named 'the gates of paradise' by Michelangelo. Admire the religious relics and let yourself be enchanted by the famous paintings, sculptures and marble facade.

  • Eating vegan in Florence is easier than you might think. Enjoy plant-based takes on traditional Italian dishes, raw-food restaurants, and gorgeous patisseries. There are even vegan supermarkets where you can stock up on goodies.

Recommendations

  • Visit the island of San Francesco, which is home to a peaceful monastery. The beautiful gardens and Medieval cloisters are a lovely spot for an afternoon walk.

  • Taste the freshest local food at the Mercati di Rialto (Rialto Market). The bustling stalls on the banks of the Grand Canal offer a vast range of regional produce.

  • Cruise along the Grand Canal, the wide stretch of water that winds through the centre of Venice from the train station to San Marco. The vaporetto (water bus) is the local way to travel on the canal – if you want to hire a gondola it's best to head to a gondola station away from the grand canal where it's quieter.
