    Uffizi Gallery

    Piazzale degli Uffizi, 50122 Florence, Italy
    88 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.

    Accademia Gallery

    Via Ricasoli 60, Florence 50122 Italy
    67 reviews

    Michelangelo was a Renaissance master, whose works continue to inspire to this day. His statue of David was commissioned by the Florence Cathedral. He started the work when he was 26 and completed it 2 years later. Ironically, other sculptors had started the David statue before him but could not complete it for various reasons. Michelangelo convinced the committee that ...

    Piazzale Michelangelo

    Piazzale Michelangelo, Florence, Province of Florence, Italy
    61 reviews

    Loved this outlook over the city, especially at night. Really great to see the city lit up, even if it's not that high of an overlook in my opinion. A great place to take it slow, saw a lot of people up there late at night with their family and friends.

    Piazza della Signoria, Florence, Italy

    Probably the most amazing Piazza Florence has to offer. The entire area seems to transcend time, as you can imaging viewing Michelangelo's David in its original location, where a replica now stands.

    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 ...

    Piazza Del Duomo

    Piazza del Duomo, Florence, Italy
    18 reviews

    The Piazza del Duomo is an architecture lover's dream. With the Basilica di Santa Maria del Fiore and Giotto's Campanile towering over a piazza seemingly packed with Renaissance sites, you'll find yourself slowly taking in each unique building. It's an exhibition of extravagance over subtlety, but it's beautiful nonetheless.

    Both the address and the hours posted here are wrong. Be sure to check with the official website before you set out for the museum. But the museum is great. There's a neat interactive part at the end.

    Pitti Palace

    Piazza Pitti 1, Florence 50125 Italy
    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.

    St. John's Baptistery

    Via della Canonica 1, Florence 50122 Italy
    14 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!

    Spectacular Romanesque church on a hill overlooking Florence. It may be one of the best examples of Romanesque architecture in Italy. The view of Florence from in front of the church is also very nice

    The beautiful ceilings in this place make it worth the visit. I was incredibly sad that they didn't allow photography inside. I have no visuals to show off!
