    Il Duomo of Florence

    144 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.

    Ponte Vecchio

    121 reviews

    Very interesting bridge, great for photographers (although many of the photos you've seen have been enhanced as the colors aren't quite as vibrant in person). Found walking across it a bit too crowded with tourists, but walking along the river especially at sunset was great for pictures.

    Uffizi Gallery

    88 reviews

    Houses possibly the best collection of Italian art in the world. My faves are Giotto, Botticelli, Pierto della Francesca, and Raphael. It's organized so you see the oldest art first. I suggest you do some research beforehand so you can beeline to what's most important to you, or just wander through. When I went last year no water was allowed ...

    Accademia Gallery

    67 reviews

    For the David alone, this museum is worth the visit. Be sure to book a reservation ahead of time, as the lines tend to wrap around the block at all hours of the day.

    Piazza della Signoria

    34 reviews

    Sure, the Piazza della Signoria is kind of touristy. Some of the overpriced restaurants nearby only accentuate that fact. It can get incredibly crowded as people circle around the replica statute of David in the square or make their way to the Uffizi Gallery. Nevertheless, there is something absolutely magical about sitting around the Piazza della Signoria at night and ...

    Arno River

    40 reviews

    It's a nice change of scenery to spend an hour or so walking down along the riverfront by the Arno River. Various bridges can be used to cross the Arno, and the oldest of these is the Ponte Vecchio ("The Old Bridge").

    Basilica di Santa Maria Novella

    30 reviews

    The Basilica di Santa Maria Novella is an amazing example of Romanesque influence. The Byzantine styles reflected in both the interior and exterior are absolutely gorgeous. Not only this, but upon entering the Basilica, Art History buffs can find many beautiful and masterful works. Massacio's "The Holy Trinity", wall murals in the choir by Ghirlandio and a young Michelangelo, and ...

    30 reviews

    Vast, steepy, different ambiances, wide roads, small forest-like paths, fountains, high trees, vineyards... there is surely something that is going to impress you in the Boboli Gardens, behind the Firenze Palace..

    Campanile di Giotto

    22 reviews

    A wonderful sight, but it's really an exhausting climbing of the stairs. The stairs are really small and in the summer, take absolutely a bottle of water with you! Only as a good tip...:)

    Stunningly beautiful and crowded. A must see but take extra patience.

    Pitti Palace

    21 reviews

    My favourite palazzo in Florence. If you're an art fan, do not skip the art galleries, there are some nice treats. Come walking from Uffizi, cross the postcard Ponte Vecchio, walk until you get to the palazzo. Afterwards have a stroll in the gardens, then take the bus back to the other river bank. There is one close to the ...

    Loggia dei Lanzi

    17 reviews

    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

    14 reviews

    Impressive baptistry. Even if you don't go inside, you should really come here to look at the bronze doors - very interesting and ornate.

    Medici Chapels Museum

    11 reviews

    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.

    Bargello Museum

    11 reviews

    The Bargello Museum has as good a collection of sculptures as the Uffizi has paintings. I particularly wanted to see and admire the Donatello, Giambologna and Cellini works, including many of the originals of statues which have copies standing outside in the Loggia di Lanzi in Piazza della Signoria and other public plazas in Florence. A number of key works ...
