Settimana della Cultura

When it comes to culture and art history, few destinations can rival the impact of Florence, Italy. This beautiful region in the Italian countryside is where the Renaissance art and architecture movement emerged. Fully aware of this, Florence is hosting Cultural Week, or Settimana della Cultura, in celebration of the region’s rich heritage. The event runs from April 14 through the 22nd, and the best part is that it’s entirely free! Springtime in Italy is utterly breathtaking, and enjoying all of the cultural events while staying at one of best hotels in Florence set the tone  for one incredible experience.
There certainly is no better time than right now for visiting the gorgeous and historical city of Florence. In a city so renowned for it’s artistic legacy, being able to enjoy it all during this lovely time of year is simply wonderful! The city’s famed array of culture will be on full display, and for visitors it will be a thorough immersion in art, history, and all of Florence’s vast treasures. The free admittance applies to all State Museums, as well as numerous exclusive attractions that are rarely ever available for public viewing. Palazzo Pitti, which was originally the home of the Medicis and the Medici Chapels are so worth a visit. Also included in the special events are the Boboli Gardens, the Uffizi and Academia Galleries, the Museo di San Marco, and the National Museum of Bargello. There will also be guided tours, innovative exhibitions, and a variety of classical music concerts.
