I only visited to climb the tower to see the views over Florence. The museum and ticket office were quiet and relaxed when I was there (around 4:45pm on a Tuesday). I was on my own and I bought a ticket for the tower for...More
I was pleasantly surprised by the interesting art history here. We used a Rick Steves guide to help us along. (If you are not familiar with Rick Steves, I highly recommend his European guides.) Access to this sight is easy, with or without the Firenze...More
Very hostile and adversarial staff. Somebody from management have to say them, that visitor is client who pays their salaries. It looks like they don’t like their jobs. Maybe their place is somewhere else. After two conflicts we asked energetically to refund entry fees and...More
A entire bridge which is basically a shopping mall that sells gold jewelry.
There are at least thrity small shops on the bridge most of which are jewelry stores. The prices are not any better then elsewhere in Florence but it's really neat to see....More
We sat in one of the street cafes and enjoyed morning tea with the stunning architecture and statues (some originals and others replicas) in the background.
Certainly one of the most beautiful parts of Florence.
The tower draws you like a magnet and a prominent landmark which opens onto a large square. Here you will find a replica of Michelangelo’s David outside and this is worth a visit alone even if it’s not the real thing. Inside is beautiful too...More
I was a few times in my visit at this place. There are many stores and restaurants there, at night always a good atmosphere and always a musician that plays and makes it special.
You can see statues and read about their history, and just...More
We did not book a tour of this town hall/museum, however we were able to walk in for free to admire the ornate marble decoration above the entrance door and the frescoes and the fountain the first courtyard.
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.
Hello, I‘m not sure, I didn’t try guided tours. Theoretically it should be possible since guided tours also include entry fee, but it’s better to ask somebody else. Enjoy the tour, I wish I had it as well!

Hi Tia. I just reviewed the video I took of the climb up and down the stairs. I'm not thrilled with heights by any means but the view from the top makes it well worth it. The steep stairs are made of stone and there are no spaces in between. In fact, for most of the journey up the stairs, you can't even see outside so you're not even aware of the height. The stairways are a little narrow-you can fit one person going up and one going down at the same time but when that does happen, it's a little tight but not too claustrophobic. When you get to the top, you are surrounded by a stone wall on all sides so you're not looking down, you're looking out, which makes it easier if you're afraid of heights. The biggest thing you should be concerned about isn't the height, it's the workout you'll get going up the stairs. Just go slow and take your time and you'll be fine!
