    Uffizi Gallery

    91 reviews

    If you're a fan of Renaissance art, this is THE place to see all the big names. There are some great highlights here but they all are within the first few rooms. The rest of the museum is quite large but unless you're a dedicated art historian, it was difficult to keep interest. It also gets quite hot in the ...

    Loggia dei Lanzi

    Wonderful piazza and statues to admire in Florence. As this is next to the Uffizi and the Pallazzo Vecchio, it can be extremely crowded but there is something archetypally renaissance and Italian when you stand here looking at these astounding statues, the replica of David and watched the Florentine crowds...

    St. John's Baptistery

    15 reviews

    Although the entire baptistry is remarkable, I was stuck in the famous doors created by Ghiberti. They are an incredible work of art. For the fascinating back story on the doors, pick up a copy of Brunelleschi's Dome by Ross King before visiting. Better than a guide book!

    Medici Chapels Museum

    The Medici chapel was stunning, for both its marble interiors and marble statues. Both the Chapel of the Princes and the New Sacristy are worth a look, particularly for the impressive Michelangelo statues in the New Sacristy.
