Perhaps too impressive, too much decoratio, too much gold leafe, but still not to be missed. Loved the secret passages tour although i had expected more of it

If you like art then this is a must. It’s free on Sunday but queue to get your entrance time slot ticket early otherwise it’s pricey to go in!

Another fantastic museum with works of Michelangelo, Donatello, etc. A great city view from the tower which you must climb many stairs to see!

Every visitor coming to Florence for the first time

Renaissance. walking delighted across Palazzo Vecchio
