VILLA DELLE FORBICI

Description

VILLA DELLE FORBICI - FLORENCE

5 Bedrooms

Location and Surrounding Area
Located just outside the center of Florence and steps from the most exclusive dining, shopping and entertainment options, this elegant five-bedroom villa is the perfect place for a stylish break in one of the most romantic cities in the world. From the 13th to the 15th century, Florence was the undisputed capital of culture and art in Europe. A few days is enough to discover its wealth of architectural and artistic treasures, but also to enjoy all the other delights of this charming and lively Tuscan city.

Florence’s reputation as an art city is unparalleled. The Duomo is the heart of Florence, and is very easy to locate. Just look for the high terracotta dome that dominates the city’s roofs cape. The area around the Duomo is pedestrianized and usually crammed with visitors. The easiest way to get around this area, with its flat streets and wide pavements, is on foot. There are a few cafés and ice-cream parlors in and around the square, handy for a rest from sightseeing.

The Uffizi art gallery is just off Piazza della Signoria, where a replica of Michelangelo’s David stands tall over spectacular fountains beside the stately Palazzo Vecchio. The long loggia of the gallery connects the piazza to the river Arno. It is a short walk from the medieval Ponte Vecchio, the oldest bridge in Florence, lined with jewelry shops. The surrounding streets and squares, though thronged with people, offer plenty of options for exceptional meals, drinks and ice creams.

The Uffizi is one of Italy’s greatest art galleries. It covers the whole sweep of Florentine art, from stylized Byzantine icons to the flowing lines of early medieval art, through Renaissance masterpieces to the colorful complexities of Mannerist art. Do not attempt to see every painting. Instead, see how many animals can be spotted in a painting, or count angel wings. Or stick to highlights by the most famous Italian artists, such as Giotto, Botticelli, Piero della Francesca, Leonardo and Michelangelo.

The sprawling 16th-century Boboli Gardens, a fine example of Italian Renaissance gardens adjoining the vast hulk of Palazzo Pitti in the Oltrarno district, are the green lungs of the city. Laid out in formal glory, they provide a refreshing break from the city streets. After the gardens, the narrow lanes of Oltrarno offer plenty of great local restaurants and old-fashioned workshops. The area gives an insight into the way the Florentines live, away from the tourist honeypot across the river.
