Special packages including new City Breaks promotion make a Florentine getaway easier than ever.
With the holidays over and summer sunshine still months away, the best New Year’s resolution may be to book a getaway in Florence this winter.
“Florence is beautiful in the winter months, when one may explore the city at leisure, without all the crowds,” says Thomas Citterio, director of marketing at Four Seasons Hotel Firenze. “Our expert concierge team can help plan a customised weekend getaway for couples, friends or family.”
Special packages to suit any interest are an ideal starting point for planning a winter getaway:
And there’s more reason to book now. From January 10 to February 28, 2011, Four Seasons Hotel Firenze is offering the City Breaks package, which includes a spending credit of EUR 100.00 when staying two of more nights.
Play concierge to friends – and fellow travellers
For savvy travellers in Florence, there’s a chance to be the concierge and help others create their own memorable trips. Check in with location-based apps such as Foursquare, Gowalla and Whrrl, and offer tips from favourite shops to restaurant reviews and more.
More and more travellers think that researching and planning a European city break is half the fun and they're not interested in pre-arranged trips or escorted tours. Self-guided tours offer a lot of advantages but require some guidance and good resources.
With the recent wild fires, disrupting flights and increasing air pollution, environmental quality is a growing factor in attracting tourists.
