What to know about florence from our local guides.

What are the best things to do in Florence?

Florence offers a multitude of iconic must-visit spots and hidden gems alike, guaranteeing that you’ll never be bored no matter how long you spend in this enchanting city. Here are a few of our guide team’s recommendations to get you started:

  • Check Florence’s top sights off your bucket list by visiting David and the Duomo —and, if you dare, take things one step further by climbing the dome
  • Delve into the countless artistic treasures housed within the Uffizi Gallery
  • Explore the sprawling Pitti Palace and bask in the tranquility of the Boboli gardens
  • Wander through the picturesque Oltrarno neighborhood and take part in the time-honored Italian aperitivo tradition at its lively bars
  • Immerse yourself in the vibrant atmosphere of the Sant’Ambrogio Market

What are some great day trips to take from Florence?

Florence is well-positioned within Tuscany to allow easy access to some of the most beautiful and historic corners of the region. Consider an excursion to Pisa to see the iconic Leaning Tower in person, an afternoon sipping wine in Chianti , or an all-encompassing Tuscany day trip covering some of the region's most picturesque towns.

Which typical foods should I try in Florence?

First things first: There’s no such thing as “Italian food”—not when each of Italy’s 20 regions has its own distinct culinary traditions! And Tuscany is no different. When visiting Florence, be sure to seek out the regional delicacies that are at their best on their home turf.

If you’re visiting Italy, you probably (understandably) plan on eating all the pasta you possibly can. Here in Florence, try the local wild boar ragu served with wide, flat noodles ( pappardelle al cinghiale ) or any type of pasta graced with Tuscany’s prized local truffles.

But pasta is far from the end-all-be-all of Florentine food. Traditionally, Tuscan cuisine was characterized as cucina povera , or “food of the poor,” and many dishes that are still enjoyed today have roots in this humble gastronomic tradition. Foods like ribollita , a hearty bread and kale soup, and the famous lampredotto (tripe) sandwich were born out of efforts to reduce waste and make the most of every scrap of meat and vegetables.

Last but not least, Florence’s most famous typical food is just about as far from cucina povera as it gets: the legendary bistecca alla fiorentina , or Florentine steak. If you’re looking to splurge on an unforgettable meal while in the Tuscan capital, don’t miss it!

If you want to eat the best Florentine food at the spots real locals love, join us on one of our Florence food tours. Our Tastes & Traditions of Florence Food Tour is a fantastic daytime option featuring a visit to the Sant'Ambrogio Market. In the evening, head across the river for aperitivo and dinner on our Oltrarno at Sunset Tour . Either way, you're guaranteed a fun, relaxing, and delicious few hours.

What are the best museums in Florence?

In addition to the Accademia Gallery, home to Michelangelo’s larger-than-life David statue, and the iconic Uffizi, here are a few more can’t-miss museums in Florence:

  • Palazzo Pitti, a former Medici palace-turned-cultural complex housing four museums
  • Museo Nazionale del Bargello, known for its collection of Renaissance sculptures by masters including Michelangelo, Bernini, and more
  • Palazzo Vecchio, the centerpiece of Piazza della Signoria, housing everything from ancient Roman ruins to Renaissance masterpieces
  • The Galileo Museum, home to an unrivaled collection of scientific equipment and an excellent option for families
  • Gucci Garden, a living tribute to the century-old luxury fashion house based in Florence

When is the best time to visit Florence?

Florence is sure to delight no matter when you decide to visit. Each season has its benefits, and it all comes down to the kind of experience you’re looking to have.

Many international visitors flock to Italy for summer vacation, making Florence a popular draw in the warmest months of the year. While this means the city can get quite crowded (and the temperatures are no joke), there’s nothing better than enjoying an al fresco meal on a gorgeous summer evening. (And, worst case scenario, the nearest beaches are just 90 minutes away.

Spring and fall boast the best temperatures all year: pleasantly warm, but not too hot, with refreshingly crisp evenings. Winter temperatures can be quite chilly (although snow is rare)—but if you’re looking for a more budget-friendly option with fewer crowds, it’s an excellent choice.

What are some fun things to do in Florence with kids?

Florence is an excellent city for families, with plenty of sights and activities that will keep even the littlest travelers entertained. A spin on the famous carousel in Piazza della Reppublica is a magical experience for all ages, and kids will love getting hands-on at the Leonardo da Vinci Interactive Museum. If you need a break from walking around (and the heat!), the Oblate Library (Biblioteca delle Oblate) offers a wonderful children’s section with kids’ books and even a small garden.

Another fantastic option for families is a kid-friendly food tour! Our Tastes & Traditions of Florence Tour is centered around the vibrant and colorful Sant’Ambrogio Market—a fun and exciting stop for little ones—and features plenty of kid-approved local tastes along the way.

How to Book tickets for Florence Museums Ahead of Your Arrival

How to book Florence museum tickets to not wait in line

Florence is known as the "Cradle of the Renaissance" for its palaces, churches and museums ,turning the city into an open-air museum that attracts millions of visitors from all over the world every year, year round.

One way to not waste time in lines is to pre-book museum tickets , certainly for the Uffizi Gallery and Accademia Gallery , which are Florence's most visited museums. Here's how and where to book Florence museum tickets!

museum tour florence italy

How to pre-book or buy museum tickets

Please note: All pre-booked tickets have an extra pre-booking fee added on. It goes from €2-4, depending on the museum.

Here's the low-down for buying museum tickets ahead of time for the STATE museums in Florence:

  • By telephone : The cheapest solution for pre-booking museum tickets in Florence is by phone! The call center number is +39-055-294-883. This is only for State Museums (the Uffizi and Accademia Galleries, the Bargello, Pitti Palace, etc. See the full list of State museums in Florence here ). Why is it the BEST way? Because you don't have to pay ahead of time . You are given a booking# and with this, you present yourself about 15-20 minutes before your reserved time, pay only then as you pick up for your tickets and then proceed on your visit. Remember, though, that Italy is +1 Greenwich time and you have to call when the call center is open: Monday – Friday, 8:30am to 6:30pm, Saturday 8:30am to 12:30pm, closed on Sundays.
  • Online on the official website : B-ticket.com is the official partner website to pre-book tickets for all of the State Museums in Florence. It is the online version of the call center, so the cost of the ticket is the same as if you booked by phone through the call center. There are two drawbacks compared to the call center: 1. you PAY UPFRONT when you pre-book, since you book with a credit card and 2. you CANNOT MAKE CHANGES to your tickets once they are purchased, and the tickets are non-refundable.
  • on-site: you can always buy tickets at the museum directly, the day you visit, at the base ticket cost (no extra fees added on). You don't have to pre-book tickets for any museums, we just generally recommend it for the Uffizi and Accademia because of the long lines there are the general entrance ticket line which make you lose precious time in Florence. If you're time is limited, we recommend getting tickets for those two museums ahead of time.

Additional options for museum tickets:

  • BOOK A GUIDED TOUR, TICKET IS INCLUDED: The museums DO NOT OFFER guided tours of the museums directly themselves, other than on special occasions. So if you want to join a guided tour, they are offered by local tour agencies and the tours include TICKETS to ensure you skip any lines. A great source of guided tours is Viator.com (an international company belonging to the TripAdvisor network - DISCLAIMER: this is our affiliated link ) which groups together all tours offered by local companies. This makes all the tours easier to find. Generally, if you're interested in visiting any museum with a guide, you book your tour, a meeting point is set and you go into the museum together as a group, the tour leader has your ticket. All tours include museum tickets, so don't buy tickets separately! There are many tours, including walking tours, which make perfect sense if your time in Florence is limited. There are large group tours as well as small group tours, as well as private tours: take a look at the options to find something you would enjoy. If you want small, personal guided tours, we have found the tours offered by tour company Italy-Tickets.com to be excellent!

How about booking CITY museums? Here's how you book city museums:

You can book tickets for Palazzo Vecchio , Santa Maria Novella , the Brancacci chapel and other city museums online through this page: http://ticketsmuseums.comune.fi.it/

But do you need to? I would say most city museums never have long lines, unless there are special events going on, and you can just wait a short time and buy museum tickets directly when you go visit.

museum tour florence italy

Which museums should you visit? Which ones need pre-booking?

While you're visiting Florence, you'll want to visit lots of these museums but which ones? Check out our top recommended sights to see in our 2 day itinerary .

Are you wondering whether you need to book ahead for some and not others ? You do for some museums: keep reading to see our recommendations on when to book and which ones, as well as additional tips on how to buy and where .

Book the Uffizi Gallery and Accademia Gallery in HIGH Season

We call Florence's busiest season the "high season" and this is roughly from May until September . During this time, there are so many people downtown it often becomes difficult to walk through Piazza Duomo (don't try it in a hurry!) and the lines at the city's major museums are long, with waits of over an hour... but only if you don't book your museum tickets ahead of time !

Generally speaking, it is good practice to book Florence museum tickets in advance if you're coming in the high tourist season, which can actually start around Easter, quiets down a bit and then picks up with the warm weather and continues until the end of September. I personally think that the extra cost of the pre-booked ticket reservation is easily justified by the time you save not queuing in front of the museums, in essence giving you more time to discover more of Florence. Booking ahead does mean you need to decide on a date and time to visit, as tickets are sold for specific entrance times. This is particularly true for the Uffizi Gallery and the Accademia Gallery , the city's two most visited museums.

If, on the other hand, you want to leave your visit to Florence flexible , either consider getting the Firenze Card or prepare yourself for the lines and prepare to make conversation with fellow people waiting in line, visitors who come from all over the world and which might make the long wait a bit more interesting!

During the rest of the year

Florence does have a quieter or "low" season, from November until March, when the number of visitors are definitely lower. It doesn't mean the city is deserted but with less numbers, the city center is a bit more enjoyable 😉. All joking aside, during the rest of the year, the lines at the Uffizi and Accademia are shorter as well as impossible to predict. You can take your chances and NOT book ahead of time, enjoying the city just like the locals in its "off-season". You might be pleasantly surprised to walk right in at the Uffizi on the day you decide to visit.

With limited time in Florence, always book ahead!

If you're in Florence for a limited time , like with only a day or two in the city, then do not leave it to chance and pre-book museum tickets. If you only have a few hours in Florence, I would suggest you book your tickets ahead of time and not spend even half an hour in line! You will want to make the most of the time you are in Florence.

The Uffizi and Accademia Galleries are Florence's Most Visited Museums

The Uffizi Gallery , with over 2200 works of art , is one of the most visited museums in all of Italy with almost 2 million visitors just last year. Even though Uffizi tickets can be reserved easily online or by phone, long lines still form every day in front of the museum and visitors wait 2 or more hours to be able to get inside. The museum, however, does offer the chance to shorten the wait by pre-booking tickets online or by phone and we highly recommend to book your tickets ahead of time, particularly for the Uffizi Gallery.

It is important to know that the Uffizi Gallery does limit the number of admissions at any one time for security measures and sets aside the number of these spots it will sell in advance. These advance tickets are sold through various channels, including authorized resellers. During the high season, some dates can be sold out on one website and still be available elsewhere so it makes sense to check your dates and book your Uffizi Museum tickets as soon as you know when you'll be in Florence. Just remember that the Uffizi Gallery is always closed on Mondays .

Among the other museums in Florence which merit booking tickets ahead of time is the Accademia Gallery . At the Accademia is where you'll find the original marble statue of David by Michelangelo and his Prisoners , as well as other masterpieces by Perugino, Filippino Lippi and Botticelli. Just like the Uffizi, the Accademia is visited by over 1,2 million visitors every year.

The long lines at the entrance on via Ricasoli wind around the nearby corner. To avoid queuing under the sun or rain (there is no portico to protect from the elements as there is at the Uffizi Gallery), we highly recommend you book tickets ahead of time.

The Bargello, Pitti Palace and Other Museums in Florence

The Boboli Gardens and Pitti Palace

Even though other Florence museums, such as the Bargello National Museum with its great sculpture collection, the Pitti Palace with its several museums and the Boboli Gardens , and the Medici Chapels with more sculptural masterpieces by Michelangelo, are not as busy as the Uffizi and the Academy, it's still useful to reserve tickets for these museums if you're visiting during high season . For these museums, you can reserve tickets online three days in advance while for the Uffizi we recommend getting them much before.

First Sundays of the Month are FREE!

Since March 2019 , the Italian Ministry of Cultural Heritage modified free entrance to all State museums every month to ONLY 6 months of the year, from October through March . This means that the Uffizi, Accademia and the rest of the State museums in Florence ( see the list here ) are free on the first Sunday of the month from October through March! It also means you CANNOT book advance entrance on that day and will need to wait in line along with everyone else. Read more about the Florence museum 3 day Firenze Card pass here to decide whether it is convenient for you, since you can book entrance for those days if you have the card. Lines can be long on those free Sundays, so be prepared!

Only in Florence for a few hours?

Regardless of the time of the year, if you're visiting Florence for only a few hours (as is the case for many doing day trips from cruise ships that stop in Livorno), I highly recommend you BOOK your museum tickets ahead of time. You don't have much time to dedicate to Florence so you don't want to spend time in line. Booking your tickets ahead of time will be one way to ensure you have more time to see beautiful Florence!

Guided Tours are a fun and interesting way to visit museums... and to skip any lines

We found it is a great way to visit both the Uffizi and Accademia museums (and the rest of Florence) because a licensed tour guide can explain the importance of the main artworks in a simple and interesting way that makes history and art quite fun! We recommend Viator because it offers a wide variety of tours (which in turn also include the ticket to the museums) as well as combinations of museum tours with walking tours of Florence. Take a look at the many tours offered , there are many options for group size, time of the day, duration of tour and places you visit.

The Accademia Gallery Museum in Florence

An unofficial guide to the galleria dell’accademia museum.

The Galleria dell’Accademia – or Accademia Gallery – in Florence, Italy , is without a doubt most famous for its sculptures by the great Renaissance artist, Michelangelo . His Prisoners (or Slaves) , his St. Matthew and, above all, the magnificent statue of David within the Tribune are what first draw most of the hundreds of thousands of visitors the museum welcomes every year.

The main halls at the Accademia also offers visitors works by great Italian artists such as Sandro Botticelli , Domenico Ghirlandaio , Pontormo, Andrea del Sarto, Allessando Allori and Orcagna , to name just a few of the painters. Many of the works of art that were commissioned by and were part of the collection of the powerful Medici family were donated to the Grand Duchy of Tuscany by the last of the Medici so that these magnificent works could be enjoyed by everyone and are part of the cultural patrimony of humankind.

The most recent section, the Museum of Musical Instruments , displays old, one-of-a-kind masterpieces by Stradivari and Bartolomeo Cristofori , inventor of the piano, also commissioned by the Medici.

The best things to do in Florence, Italy

By Stephanie Rafanelli

A view of Florence Old Town with the duomo and the bell tower in the background

The concept of a "new Florence" might seem like an oxymoron; like the new Botticelli or Michelangelo, two masters of the Renaissance that the city of the Rinascimento has leaned on for the last five centuries. Florence is so rich with artistic and architectural wonders; who can blame the conservative Florentines for resting on their laurels or sore-footed visitors for having the sensation that the great Tuscan capital is just one big stifling museum?

But Florence has changed over the last five years. Firstly, it’s bigger: in 2021 UNESCO added the churches of San Miniato al Monte, San Salvatore al Monte, Giuseppe Poggi’s renovated ramps and Piazzale Michelangelo in the Florentine hills to its World Heritage Sites, extending the centro storico to 530 hectares. It’s also quieter, cleaner and brighter since motor vehicles were banned in the city centre and the rebirth of some of Florence's most important artworks and museums via a series of recent ambitious restorations.

Street view of the Duomo

Meanwhile, a refreshing breeze has swept across Florence’s airless traditions. A new hotel landscape brings playful visions of the contemporary city; an energetic dining scene embraces New York -style glamour and the multi-cultural – from Neapolitan pizza sensations to Tuscan -Chinese dim sum and vegan fare (notably Amza Zahouani’s Oltrarno ventures) – alongside its traditional trattoria dishes. And a generation of artisans is breathing sustainability and diversity into Florence’s ancient arts and crafts.

Since architect Paolo Desideri’s €175-million conversion of the Teatro Comunale into a multifunctional music space and opera house, urban regeneration projects go from strength to strength. The city’s former granary and army barracks are now a co-working hub and Manifattura Tabacchi, a disused tobacco factory near Piazza Puccini undergoing a progressive €250 million transformation, is destined to be Florence’s new dynamic creative and fashion hub.

Italy's most enchanting city is going through a sparkly revival, with iconoclastic art, edgy architecture and quirky twists on regional food popping up everywhere. There's so much more to explore but where to begin? These are all the very best things to do in Florence.

San Miniato al Monte church

Bardini Villa

With so much art it’s easy to forget Florence’s proximity to nature both in its glorious hilly surround and its superstar Renaissance gardens – manicured works of art, too grand to be classed as mere “green spaces.” Most magical are the gardens of the Bardini Villa above the city where one can walk through boughs of wisteria, and further on – the terraced Rose and Iris Gardens in the new UNESCO extension – before watching the sun set into the great bowl of Florence from romantic working monastery San Miniato al Monte.

Address: Costa San Giorgio, 2, 50125 Website: villabardini.it

Florence is known for the Big Three: Gucci, Emilio Pucci and Salvatore Ferragamo, a fashion game that can now be spotted in any major global city. But a new generation of Florentine labels has restored the hunting thrill to shopping in the city. Following the haute couture seams of Loretta Caponi, young Fiorentina Gioia Bini – now a regular in the pages of Vogue and Harper’s Bazaar – designs limited edition hand-sewn bell-shaped and architectural dresses with up-cycled fabrics from the region’s best textile mills.

Address: Lungarno Serristori 9, 500125 Website: gioiabini.com

Vegetables and fruit at a grocery market in Florence Italy.

Mercato Centrale

Food halls are a brilliant way to experience the best of what a city has to offer on the culinary scene, and Mercato Centrale does exactly that for Florence. It’s situated on the second floor of an impressive late-19th-century steel-and-glass market building (a fully operational market complete with traditional butchers, fishmongers and fresh produce can be found on the first floor). Inside, visitors sit at one of the many communal tables in the centre of the space, surrounded by stalls selling everything from pizza, fresh pasta, barbecued meats and, of course, ice cream. Sarah Allard

Address: Piazza del Mercato Centrale, Via dell'Ariento, 50123 Firenze FI, Italy Website: mercatocentrale.com

Bargello Museum

The new €1.8 million re-haul of the Bargello Museum, which was kicked off by a major Donatello exhibition in 2022, is one of a number of recent renovation projects polishing up the city’s greatest hits. Most wondrous are the works at the Brancacci chapel in Santa Maria del Carmine church, where scaffolding forms viewing platforms from which to see Masolino and Masaccio’s restored frescoes masterpieces – often cited as the genesis of the Renaissance.

Address: Via del Proconsolo, 4, 50122 Firenze FI, Italy Website: chiesadelcarmine.net

VIVOLI in Florence

In case you’ve somehow managed to miss the many (many) photos and videos of this now Insta-famous cafe doing the rounds on social media, let us fill you in. Vivoli is Florence’s oldest gelateria, serving tourists and locals alike everything from gelato and cookies to traditional Florentine desserts. But for most, there’s only one thing that has them queuing across the road… affogato. The team expertly spreads soft, creamy gelato into pre-chilled coffee cups before a shot of espresso goes into the hollowed-out middle. Head outside to spoon (and, once the ice cream has melted into the coffee, slurp) it in the sun-filled street, and start planning your return. Sarah Allard

Address: Via Isola delle Stinche, 7r, 50122 Firenze FI, Italy Website: vivoli.it

View on cityscape and the dome of the Cathedral of Florence.

Palazzo Strozzino

A dialogue between Renaissance and the contemporary art age housed in the palace of the Medici's nemesis, the Palazzo Strozzi Foundation upped its game when it hired Arturo Galansino formerly of London's Royal Academy in 2015. Since then it has become a major Florentine institution showing the works of Ai Weiwei, Marina Abramović and Jeff Koon as well as co-hosting the likes of the Donatello exhibition. Meanwhile, the iconic Odeon cinema in Palazzo Strozzino across the road is to become a new multifunctional cultural centre.

Address: Piazza degli Strozzi, 50123 Firenze FI, Italy Website: palazzostrozzi.org

Marino Marini Museum

Henry Moore visited Florence in his youth, went on to sculpt the same marble as Michelangelo, showed in Florence in 1972 and donated works to the city – all the while cross-fertilising with Tuscan primitivist sculptor Marino Marini. One of the most important Italian artists of the 20th century. Marini’s monolithic equestrian sculptures are shown in this under-the-radar ex-tobacco factory once a chapel designed by Leon Battista Alberti.

Address: Piazza di San Pancrazio, 50123 Firenze FI, Italy Website: museomarinomarini.it

A view of Florence Old Town with the duomo and the bell tower in the background

Superduper Hats

With a new space at the urban regeneration project Manifattura Tabacchi, Superduper Hats is the brainchild of Matteo Gioli, Ilaria and Veronica Cornacchini’s who fashion unisex millinery showpieces on antique wooden moulds.

Address: Via delle Cascine, 35, 50144 Firenze FI, Italy Website: superduperhats.com

Kataya florence

Iacobella Gaetani

Inspired by the Colombian Mochila, Iacobella Gaetani founded her eponymous handbag label in 2019. A fusion of Florence’s leather- and jewellery-working cultures, Iacobella’s hand-stitched plaited bags often use recycled leather strips and have a gem fastening as their trademark.

Sileno Cheloni florence

Sileno Cheloni

New perfume laboratory Sileno Cheloni is a nod to the Officina Profumo-Farmaceutico Santa Maria Novella, the historic pharmacy founded by Dominican friars in 1221 with its flagship in the celestial chapel of San Niccolo’. Nearby, in a space that rather conjures the dark arts, master perfumer Cheloni has created an “olfactory library” of 2,000 essences for his one-off alchemical creations, which also come in the form of medieval-style scented silver pomanders.
