Florence or Rome: which city for your next trip?

When it comes to planning a city break to Italy, it’s easy to get stuck on picking the city. Between the romance of Venice, the chic of Milan and the sass of Naples, you could spend weeks travelling around Italy and still not have seen it all. And that’s not an empty phrase. I’ve tested it, I’ve tried! More times than is decent to mention....

A day trip to Florence

During our month in Italy we were hoping to spend a few days exploring Florence. But circumstances forced us to stay in Rome during the time we’d allocated for Florence.

And we did still manage to make it to Florence for a day trip…...

Long Weekend: Florence

The world has been obsessed with this little Tuscan outpost ever since she was a blushing bambino.
