The birthplace of opera and the Italian Renaissance, Florence is a beautiful city offering some of Italy’s finest culture, art, and architecture. April is said to be the best time of the year to visit because of the warm weather, whereas August is said to be unbearably hot. If you want to avoid the large tourist crowds, January and February are your best bet because of the cold weather. However, Florence is a very popular vacation destination, so it is pretty busy year round.
Florence is a city of history and religion, making it abundant with churches and museums. For around 72 euros per person, there is a Firenze card that is a system allowing you access to 30 museums and free access to all public transportation. Some of the city’s most famous museums include: the Galleria degli Uffizi, which is one of the worlds most famous fine art museums holding collections of Renaissance paintings, the Bargello, which houses some of the best examples of Renaissance sculptures, Accademia Gallery, Gucci Museum, Institute and Museum of the History of Science and Pitti Palace which includes the beautiful Boboli Gardens. As Florences’ main cathedral and as the city’s main symbol, Santa Maria del Fiore is definitely worth a visit not only for its religious history, but also for its beautiful architecture. If history is your thing, remember to check out Ponte Vecchio! It is the oldest and most famous bridge over the Arno and it is the only bridge in Florence to have survived World War II. Giotto’s Tower is perfect for sightseeing. Tourists are able to climb the tower and experience 360 degrees of Duomo and Florence’s beauty from up high. Once you have visited all the museums and cathedrals, Florence is always a great place to shop, watch street performers, and eat some amazing Italian food.
When flying into Amerigo Vespucci International Airport, there are taxi’s and buses that are able to get you into the city within 15 minutes.
