    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

    It's 20 mins walking and 11 by cab. If you have plans, ask the front desk to order you a cab so it's waiting for you in the lobby. They are very helpful.
