One of Europe’s most well known art cities, Florence is simply stunning.

The capital of Tuscany, and home to art work from some of the greats it’s impossible not to fall for the place.

Canvases by Leonardo da Vinci and Botticelli are coupled by Michelangelo’s David and much more.
As well as that, the architecture all around the city embodies Italian culture.
As well as the city, Tasso Hostel was also engrained in Italian culture. From the minute you enter, you feel at home.

The design of bar / common area is what Florence is all about and the open space it’s built in, allows each different area to have its own identity.

The hostel‘s bar itself is filled with locals on weekends, with events each week. The Apertivo is one we were lucky enough to attend. Every Friday, and for just 10 euros, you get a drink, a buffet, good music all night as well as good company. Visitors to the hostel as well as locals are in attendance and although the party starts slow, it’s certainly builds up.

There are other events throughout the week such as Open Mic nights. As well as plans to extend the hostel, adding around another 60 beds.

This would allow large parties to stay and there are even talks of holding weddings in Tasso Hostel. The hostel would act as a venue as well as a place to stay and it could definitely work!

At the moment, the hostel is home to just under 30 beds, making your stay very exclusive and tailored for.

There is a large homely kitchen and a free breakfast service. Plus, the bar is open all day, every day.

The garden area is very chilled, especially when it’s sunny and the area surrounding the Hostel is peaceful. Also, if you are lucky enough, you may even get a room with a view.
Back to the city itself, and where better to start than Piazzale Michelangelo. The lookout is one of the best in Europe, overlooking the whole of Florence and admission is free.
Although a little bit of a walk, like much of Europe’s heights. Once at the top the panoramic view of the city will make you want to do it all over again. Views of the Duomo, and Ponte Vecchio Bridge are just a couple of the sites on offer.

The Duomo itself is a wonderful structure and for just 15 euros you can buy a ticket that covers the museum, baptist church, the Duomo and its tower.

Galleries holding work made by Boticelli and Da Vinci are all on offer and a must see, as well as Michelangelo’s David.
So if you’re planning a trip to Italy, but don’t fancy the business of its major cities, Florence is the perfect place. Be sure to sample the Gelato too, it’s out of this world.
