When, I visited Florence I took the train from Florence to Pisa to see the Leaning Tower for a day trip. It's a short train ride. I'd never seen the tower before and I thought it was great sight.

My tip.... book tickets for the Uffizi and the Academia in advance. On the day queues can take ages.

I agree. For the main museums if you haven't booked your tickets forget it. Queues are so long...

During my last trip to Florence the only solution was to go to the museums one hour before closing... no queue.

But you have to rush.

Otherwise Florence is splendid. Some churches worth a visit (not only the Duomo).

From Florence there are many easy to reach towns by train. Also is Montecatini Terme- the spa town. Oh what a gorgeous town! See the spa water in the old buildings and walk up the hill and get the funicular up to Alto village and wander- good to go at sunset and have a meal in the many restaurants in the square.

make sure you are back in time for the train to Florence or stay there the night instead.
