    Our guide Ana was very knowledgeable and provided a well adapted und refined introduction of almost two hours into the main treasures of the Uffizi. The background information was worth every cent of the fees!

    If you're in Florence then you definitely must head up to here. The views from the Piazzale are fabulous, there is beautiful restaurants to stop and have lunch with a view. We took the bus up and then walked back down ( very easy and a lot nicer than the bus). Only about 20 /25 minute walk back into the city.

    Very nice exhibits that only requires an hour or two. We found the music exhibit interesting. It would be worth it if all you saw was David.

    Had a wonderful experience thanks to our knowledgeable tour guide Dan (danharperflorence@gmail.com). My husband and I got so much more out of our visit by taking a tour with Dan than if would have just walked through on our own. There is so much history in this church, and the way Dan speaks about it makes it so interesting and engaging. If you visit I highly recommend contacting him for a free guided tour!

    It is a large and majestic building from outside but quite difficult to enter unless you line up and even then the signs were confusing and you may not end up where you wanted to go.Construction commenced at the end of the 13th century and is large and unique. If you like crowds this is for you. Better planning need next time

    Beautiful site. Be sure to purchase tickets before hand as they sell out quick. I do not reccomend the climbs if you're claustrophobic or scared of heights. Narrow passageways and lots of stairs to climb. Overall a must see if you're into beautiful architecture.

    This ancient palace is beautiful, as most things are in the historical center. It is great just to spend a while looking at it, analyzing all its details. You can't miss it when in Firenze

    Great experience, climbed the dome (around 437 steps), narrow in places but it's not as bad as you think. The views of Florence from the top make it worthwhile, also you get a good look at the artwork inside the dome. I had booked combination tickets before we flew and had pre booked a time slot for the climb ( best to go early in the morning) and then you could use your ticket for up to 72 hours after but can only visit each attraction once.

    This is part of the combined museum ticket which is worth buying if you have more than one day in Firenze. The best desriptiion is overwhelming. There is too much and too little explanation. The cafe is nice but the sandwich had bread that was more than two days old.

    The piazza is a must-visit when traveling to Florence, and it is hard to miss, with the tower of Palazzo Vecchio over it. Beautiful statues abound.

    There are several historical religious buildings in Florence. In my opinion, this one is the most beautiful, although others seem to be more popular. It is located on a hill, with very nice views of the city.

    Loved this market! Outside lots of stalls selling bags, leathers, T-shirts etc, very repetitive but enjoyable to walk around. Inside the market downstairs is some small restaurants/wine bars and food stores selling pastas, sauces, herbs and spices etc. Upstairs (opens til 12 midnight) lots of places to buy food, wine and beers. We sat inside a lovely small wine bar upstairs and had 3 glasses of wine each, we were so comfortable there we didn’t want to leave. The staff were so friendly , they let you try the wine before they pour a full glass, and there are so many to choose from. They sell small bites there also, but we bought a cannoli from another stall and brought it in with no issue. Would come back to this small wine bar if I was ever visiting Florence again.

    We made sure we made it to the Museo dell'Opera del Duomo, which is in many ways better than spending time in line for the Duomo itself. This is a modern museum right behind the Duomo which gives the history of the church and its construction. We happened to catch an exhibit if one of Michelangelo's Pietas (obviously the most famous is in Rome), but it was gorgeous. The actual gold doors of the Baptistry are here for safety. I was fascinated by the exhibited if the dome's construction with a lot of the types of tools used. It is really amazing to see the skill of the architects and builders 500 years ago. Extra tip- we were there when it was very hot in Florence and this museum, unlike most, actually has air conditioning that works! FYI- you have to go around the Duomo to the ticket office to get your ticket; you can't get those at the museum itself. We didn't have any trouble getting tickets, but it depends on when you go, I guess.

    The climb up the tower is quite a challenge 400 hundred steps plus! There are plenty of stages to rest so take your time. Not a lot to see inside as the main event is at the top! Excellent views all over Florence and close up views of the Duomo. Towards the top the stairs can get quite narrow but easily passable.

    We popped in here early one morning, after our visit to the Bargello. Many of the walls of this Dominican monastery were decorated in pre-Renaissance times, by Father Angelico, and his pupils. The tour begins in the Cloister of St. Antoninus featuing some beautiful lunettes. The Guest Room, where pilgrims were received, is now a gallery for many wonderful panel paintings by Fra Angelico.Head to the Chapter House for his complex and allegorical Crucifixion. Don’t miss the Refectories. The small refectory is dominated by Domenico Ghirlandaio’s Last Supper. I loved the detail in this painting – the crockery, decanters, knives, bread etc. The lunettes above the table are filled with large trees and birds in flight, an open window frames a perching peacock, and a cat waits for scraps.

    The tour continues on the first floor. At the top of the stairs, you will see Fra Angelico’s Annunciation. You can then peek into 43 monks cells which are decorated with simple frescoes, many by Fra Angelico. The last three cells (12-14) at the end of the corridor to the left, were once used by Girolamo Savonarola before he was hanged and in Piazza della Signoria. At the end of the corridor to the right, Cells 38 and 39 were reserved as a spiritula retreat for the Medici Cosimo the Elder.
