"Florence - The City of Art" Florence by codrutz

Florence Travel Guide: 5,247 reviews and 11,822 photos

Check out my tips pages about this top 10 destination in Europe for fine arts visitors.

Before you plan going to Florence for the first time make sure you've planned at least two full days for this city. Don't do like me and don't hurry to see ten cities in a week :) On the first day take the map and take the general tour of the city, not entering long lined churches or museums - do make a reservation for the next day for the Ufizzi Gallery (vis-a-vis of the line you will see at the entrance there is the reservations desk). Explore and check the details. For a better impression about Florence you might want to consider three days, or else you will need to return soon to check out what you have missed :)

    Wonderful page, tips, photos! You'll need to return. I say that after 3 visits. Thanks for the b-day wishes, it was for michaela, she turned 2. How's the recovery coming? Saluti di Italia Jon

    Very nice page on Florence, one of my favorite cities. I've spent about 8 days in Florence and still haven't seen everything there is to see. I guess that's good, it gives me a reason to go back :)

    Great job, Codrut! This is an excellent page with fantastic pictures and detailed information. Florence deserves indeed more than a day. As in most of the cities in Italy every corner brings you something new (no. 14 for example...).
