Starting immediately, the Spanish carrier Vueling will depart from the Bavarian capital to Florence five times a week. An Airbus A319 will take off for the Italian metropolis every Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Sunday.
Florence owes much of its distinctive beauty to palaces and churches such as the Palazzo Vecchio and the Renaissance cathedral Santa Maria del Fiore. A special highlight is the iconic Ponte Vecchio, which spans the 200-kilometer River Arno. Lined with many small shops, it is among the world's oldest segmental arch bridges. The Tuscan capital is also a magnet for art lovers: In the world-famous Uffizi galleries, more than a thousand works by such renowned artists as Da Vinci, Botticelli and Titian are on display. And in the Galleria dell’Accademia, visitors can experience Michaelangelo's magnificent David. This work, more than 5 meters tall, is one of the most famous sculptures in art history.
Along with the new connection to Florence, Vueling is also offering services from Munich to Rome, Barcelona and Palma de Mallorca this summer. Florence is an important base for Vuelling, which is part of the IAG Group. The Spanish carrier serves 120 short and medium-range destinations in Europe, North Africa and the Middle East.
