An unforgettable Valentine’s Day in Florence, 2022
Be whisked away in the city of art, culture and nature.
Valentine’s day is dedicated to lovers and loving, with our passion for the city of Florence in our hearts on this day and always! Take the opportunity to celebrate amore in the Renaissance city where culture, art, and history are imbued in every brick. Take the hand of your chosen loved one, and set off through the centuries-old streets in honour of your bond and your connection with the city.
With breathtaking views, endless romance, dazzling colours and rich cultural heritage, beautiful Florence is the perfect setting for Valentine’s day. Whether you’re visiting or a resident looking for special ways to mark the occasion, here are some ideas for an unforgettable day.
Wander museums with your loved one
The stillness and quiet of the hallowed halls of some of Florence’s most renowned museums and galleries are intimate settings for a bonding visit. Must-sees like the Uffizi Gallery, Accademia Gallery and Opera del Duomo are ideal choices, as are the civic museums like Palazzo Vecchio and the Arnolfo Tower. Check out the Museo Novecento, Stefano Bardini Museum, Brancacci Chapel, Fondazione Romano and Santa Maria Novella Museum for other wonderful ways to celebrate your love for each other and for the city.
