Florence, or Firenze in Italian, is a goldmine of culture from a bygone era. It flaunts its status as the birthplace of the Renaissance with its elegant architecture and world-class art museums. The churches, basilicas and Florence Cathedral that dominate the cityscape demand you to look up at their intricate frescos. Then, you can head outside onto the windy, cobbled streets for some seriously wistful daydreaming.

Guided running tours in Florence show off the highlights of the UNESCO World Heritage city centre in no time at all. Choose between the must-see tour, the hills tour, An off-the-beaten-track trail run and much more. Lapo, your friendly and knowledgeable local guide, can even show you another of Tuscany’s major cities, Siena.

Cuisine is a big deal in Florence. Tried-and-tested recipes passed down through the ages are always on the menu in the city’s fantastic restaurants. And what is an Italian dinner without a fine wine to go with it? As the capital of Tuscany, one of Italy’s top wine-producing regions, budding sommeliers will feel right at home.
