Attractions near the Hotel Universo

Art indulgence

Florence is one of the world's greatest art cities and home to the world's oldest and most famous art museum, the Uffizi Gallery. Housing art from throughout the ages, the core of the Uffizi's collection is its celebrated Renaissance pieces, featuring prized paintings from Renaissance greats such as Boticelli, Da Vinci, Titian and Michelangelo.

Even if you're an art novice, you'll recognise many of these great works of art and be mesmerised by their beauty as you stroll through the Gallery's enchanting halls. The Uffizi is just a 10-minute stroll from the Hotel Universo, through the city's historic centre.

Don't miss David

Another of Florence's major attractions is Michelangelo's original David statue, housed among other art treasures at the Accademia Gallery. This magnificent giant marble sculpture is the jewel in the crown of Florence's artworks and is a not-to-be missed attraction.

Marvel at the intricate details and technical skill of this beautiful Renaissance sculpture, which has captivated crowds for over half a century.
