A picturesque Renaissance city filled with the splendors of art and architecture by the masterminds like Da Vinci and Michelangelo. Now a melting pot of old and new culture its a place surely bustling with life at all the times. The grandeur of the place will take you aback. A must visit

A lot of famous paintings you normally see only on historically books could be visited here. You could remain amazed of the art and mystery surrounding this building. The painting chosen during a "christian" period, showing a lot of ancient Romans Gods, were very brave. Are not just made there for nothing, they probably want to leave a message to... More

For a fantastic view of Florence, we went straight to the tower in Palazzo Vecchio on a friend's recommendation. We went late in the afternoon around 5pm. By then, there weren't too many people heading up the tower, so we were able to get to the top in 10-20 minutes. This is a great way to avoid the long lines... More

This is a very interesting site and well worth the time to see. It is an attraction that is on the Firenze Card and this is what we used for entry. A replica of Michelangelo's David guarded the entrance suggesting to the visitor a worthwhile visit. There were a few different parts of the museum including a gallery of information... More

Small/no queues, stunning architecture (inside and out) and (for someone who knows little about such art) very good signposting and labels to get the most enjoyment out of all of it. Well worth paying the extra for the views from the tower (although the climb clearly proved too much for some visitors). TIP: Go later in the day, or in... More

Staying in Uffizi

Neighborhood Profile
Uffizi
Every visitor coming to Florence for the first time will immediately identify with Uffizi. As in past times, passing through Via dei Calzaiuoli, you can reach the city center, the Florence that everybody dreams of. In just a few steps, visitors can experience the rare beauty of the capital of the Renaissance. walking delighted across Palazzo Vecchio and overlooking Piazza della Signoria, up to the Loggia of the Uffizi where it is possible to fully taste the talent of the best artists who animated Florence over the centuries. When the sun goes down, there’s nothing better than a walk along the river Arno up to the ancient bridge, Ponte Vecchio. It is full of jewels and decorated by the colors captured in postcards.
