For centuries, millions of intellectuals, pioneers, traders and artisans have been passing through Florence with the desire to stay, leaving their works as a gift. The Renaissance marked the beginning of this synergy between the city and its visitors. Its evolution, nowadays, is defined as quality congress tourism, for which delegates specialized in the most varied and fundamental disciplines, come from all over the world in search of a stimulating, amazing and above all tailor made experience.

 

Florence welcomes delegates in modern and efficient congress venues perfectly positioned in the historic centre. A few steps and a few minutes connect the venues to the best hotels, the central station and also to Amerigo Vespucci airport, now easily accessible by tram. Once work is over, the delegate can transform their time into a magical tourist experience.
