Valentina Nova is ideally positioned in the heart of the historical medieval city of Florence, the capital of the regional area of Tuscany, in northwest Italy. The international airport of Peretola Florence is only eleven kilometres away, a short thirty-minute drive by taxi, or there is now a direct bus and tram into the city centre.

The villa is situated in a prime spot, perfect for exploring this Renaissance city, now declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site. All the major iconic sights are within walking distance of the villa, and as you stroll along those well-worn stone pavements, take time to absorb the atmosphere and history that is embedded in those fourteenth century walls. Don’t miss a visit to the nearby Uffizi Gallery, home to one of the world’s best Renaissance art collections, housing superb sixteenth century old masters in an original building, designed by Vasari. Book in advance a tour of the Vasari corridor, where the original art works were hidden during the occupation in the world wars. See the Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore, where you can admire the ornate icons, and walk Brunelleschi’s dome. Don’t forget to look at in detail the doors of the San Giovanni Baptistery. Marvel at Michelangelo’s David at the Academia, before visiting the church of Santa Croce to wonder at the restored Cimabue’s crucifix.

After all that culture, sit down in one of the cafes in the Piazza dell Repubblica, before shopping for handmade leather goods in San Lorenzo market. If all that walking has tired you out, hop on a Vespa Tour and take a trip around the city. For the fashionistas the Gucci, and Salvatore Ferragamo Museums are a must-see. For those who prefer smells to bells, then a visit to the convent of Santa Maria Novella for their handmade soaps or partaking in a perfume masterclass, is on the cards.

Cross the River Arno via the nearby Ponte alle Grazie to the Giardano Bardini and the Bardini Museum, famous for its sculptures. Or stroll along the riverbank and cross at the Ponte Vecchio, and stop to bargain for handcrafted goods at the local stalls. Take a walk to the magnificent Pitti Palace, rich with paintings by Raphael, Rubens, and Titian, before a stroll around the adjacent Boboli Gardens. The Brancacci Chapel and the Basilica of Santa Maria del Santo Spirito can feed your soul, whilst the Piazzale Michelangelo is perfect for a cappuccino pit stop.

Foodies will be in seventh heaven with pizza, pasta, and gelato cooking classes, and for the wine lovers, there is a Chianti Safari across the Tuscan countryside. In the evening dine out on the local dish of a Bistecca all Florentina, a superb sharing steak served in all the best restaurants. For fabulous fashion at fabulous prices make your way to the out-of-town Barbierino Designer Outlet.  And for those that fancy a day trip, take a tour to Siena, San Gimignnano, the leaning tower of Pisa, or the Cinque Terre five village coastal hiking trail.

Valentina Nova is a great place to vacation with kids. The villa can be found in the centre of historic Florence, with all the major sights within walking distance.

The Natural History Museum is stuffed full of animal, vegetable, and rock fossils they will find fascinating. The Uffizi Gallery is within walking distance, book a private family tour, which is especially designed for children, it is short and shows them the highlights of the collection, and will whet their appetite for art.

All aboard the Florence Tour Bus for a guided tour around the Renaissance city. Stop off at the Leonardo da Vinci interactive museum, with its 3D models, multimedia displays, and detailed engineering, military, and flying machines, invented by the maestro himself.

Your younger ones will enjoy a visit to the Palazzo Vecchio puppet shows, where they can dress up as a Medici, and go on treasure hunts, before riding the carousel in the Piazza della Repubblica. Whilst your older ones will love a Vespa or e-scooter tour whizzing around the city, and stopping off the Museo Galileo, with its ancient telescopes and original gadgets.

For your adrenalin seekers, take them on a sky walk of Brunelleschi’s dome on top of the Cathedral, where they can enjoy the panoramic views of medieval Florence. All the family can partake in an Italian cooking class, before an evening on the Illuminated Florence bus tour, where you get to eat pizza and brightly coloured Italian gelato.
