    89 reviews

    The Uffizi Gallery is an absolute must for art fans. Like Accademia, however, lines tend to form early and run long. Try to purchase tickets ahead of time, or make a reservation with a tour guide. No photography is allowed inside the galleries.

    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.

    Piazza Del Duomo

    18 reviews

    This is one of those places like the Eiffel Tower ot Empire State Building that, while touristy, you have to check out if you are in Florence. Aside from being touristy, it actually is quite beautiful and is the heart and center of Florence, which is a beautiful walking city.

    Pitti Palace

    21 reviews

    I prefer the gardens and the surrounding grounds over exploring inside but to each their own. The area is a fun place to relax. Grab a gelato across the street and enjoy the sun.

    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...

    Galileo Science Museum

    18 reviews

    My favorite museum here. Unlike anything I've seen elsewhere -- less about Galileo and more about scientific instruments. Fascinating with excellent educational videos and high quality displays. Taps into that childhood sense of discovery and fascination with nature. Even better, no lines!

    Bargello Museum

    13 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 ...
