    Il Duomo of Florence

    146 reviews

    Free to enter, which is nice, though to your the catacombs costs money. Honestly, the outside is more interesting/beautiful than the inside, so be sure to circle the building and take a look.

    Uffizi Gallery

    88 reviews

    The Birth of Venus is the most famous work here but the museum is full of masterpieces. Book in advance or directly at the museum the day before to avoid lines. Alternatively, arrive before 8 a.m. Even with a reservation, 8:15 a.m. is recommended if you want to enjoy the museum in relative quiet. Lines can be 2 hours+ long. ...

    Historic Center of Florence

    Compact, very walkable and gorgeous. Only detractor is the tourist hoardes. A must visit on the planet -- but preferably when the kids are in school.

    Basilica di Santa Maria Novella

    30 reviews

    Pretty impossible not to be impressed. Probably should have spent more time here, but it's right across from the train station so it's easy to see in passing.

    Boboli Gardens

    30 reviews

    Just a few minutes away from famous and crowded bridge Ponte Vecchio. Wear comfortable showes, use a map to orient yourself inside the gardens and - if you have enough time - go up to the Fortress "Forte Belvedere", follow the arrows and walk down hill through lovely villas and the Bardini Gardens. Fabulous view of Florence and surrounding Hills.

    Pitti Palace

    21 reviews

    From outside you would think it is just a fortress. Yet the interior houses an incredible wealth of works of art. If you are going for the first time choose the Galleria Palatina and the Monumental Apartments where the king of Italy once resided.

    Loggia dei Lanzi

    17 reviews

    If you offered me three sandwiches and the opportunity to enjoy them anywhere in the world, the Loggia dei Lanzi would be one of those three choices. Serving as a shelter from the crowds passing through Firenze and the sun bearing down upon the city, this open-air gallery also houses amazing statues from Renaissance artists like Cellini, Giambologna, Fedi, Fancelli ...

    Galileo Science Museum

    16 reviews

    Very cool museum with some great examples of early scientific equipment, most of which was handcrafted giving these tools a unique craftsmanship and beauty. You can also see Galileo's finger. I wasn't particularly inspired by it, but it is kind of interesting in an oddball sort of way

    Bargello Museum

    11 reviews

    The highlight here is sculpture - especially a few beautiful pieces by Michaelangelo. The visit was worthwhile if only to see these pieces; there are also a large number of older paintings and antique items that are interesting if you're into that sort of thing.
