Italy's Crown Jewel

One of the most beautiful cities in the world, Florence is the crown jewel of Italy, where over six centuries of aesthetic beauty combine with contemporary style, innovation and ingenuity.

Ponte Vecchio

Florence is a city that wears its past into the present. Different time periods harmoniously intertwine and overlap to create a truly unique place.

The Facade of Santo Spirito

Renaissance architect Filippo Brunelleschi designed some of Florence's most stunning 15th-century masterpieces: the cathedral dome, the Hospital of the Innocents orphanage, and the churches of San Lorenzo and Santo Spirito.

Bar Elia e Sergio

SU Florence's snack bar is run by our simpaticissimi Elia and Sergio Landi.
