The main attraction in this small museum is Michelangelo’s 17-foot-tall masterpiece, the David. Although it’s worth the trip just for this, you can see other works by famous artists as well as a mini musical instrument museum.
The Uffizi is one of the largest collections of Renaissance art in the world. The museum houses masterpieces by Botticelli, da Vinci, Michelangleo, Raphael, Caravaggio and more. Even if you aren’t interested in art you have to go at least to see the Birth of Venus.
Craving American food in Florence (I don’t judge)? Head to The Diner for an all-American menu including burgers, wraps, and breakfast foods served all day. Service is very poor but the food is delicious.
Piazza del Fior, The Duomo, The Florence Cathedral
Piazza del Duomo
The Duomo is the huge church in the middle of the city. It was built from 1296-1430 by a slew of famous architects. It’s free to visit and costs around 10 euro to climb to the 463 steps top (which is definitely worth it). The Baptistry, where you can view the Gates of Paradise, is directly across from the facade of the Duomo.
