Among the most beautiful Italian cities, Florence is a favoured location when it comes to romance. This Tuscan city is fairly small and its well-known attractions, such as the Duomo and the Ponte Vecchio, are within walking distances. Although it is a very touristic destination, there are countless quieter spots for a romantic proposal. Couples can enjoy a stroll or a picnic in the Boboli Gardens, or use the service of a “Renaiolo” for a boat trip on the River Arno. Climbing the hill to Piazzale Michelangelo rewards visitors with stunning views of the city and a few more steps take you to another Florentine treasure: San Miniato al Monte. Of course a romantic weekend in Florence would not be complete without the delicious food, wine and ice cream on offer.
I went to Florence a good few years ago for the first time and loved it. Subsequent visits only improved the place for me as I found more and more I missed the first time! I even proposed to my wife on the Pontevecchio bridge and bought the ring there the next day!
I would recommend staying either in the city centre for 1-2 days and then taking a villa to also see some of Tuscany and then you can compare to other towns like Siena or San Gimignano. Try www.qualityvillasitaly.co.uk
