In and about Florence

Touring a heritage of all mankind.


The historical centre of Florence has been declared by the UNESCO as a World Heritage Site and it lingers in the hearts of all those who visit it for the sheer quantity and beauty of its artistic wealth. It is truly like no other place in the world. Hotel Helvetia & Bristol sits right in the middle of this extraordinary historical ambience and, for this reason, is the ideal point of departure for a thoroughly delightful tour.

Right in front of the hotel is Palazzo Strozzi, a masterpiece of Florentine Renaissance architecture, and just around the corner is the magnificent red, green and white marble Duomo with, in front of it, Giotto’s campanile, from the top of which visitors can enjoy a truly glorious views over the ancient city.

A little further on is Piazza della Signoria, next to which is Palazzo Vecchio and the Uffizi Gallery, one of the most important museums of Italian art in the world.  A visit to the Basilica di Santa Maria Novella, Ponte Vecchio - with its ancient jewellery shops and goldsmiths – as well as Palazzo Pitti and the magnificent Boboli Gardens, is equally thrilling.
