Visit Florence! Here is Your Best Travel Guide For Florence!
When to Visit Florence
Florence is one of my favorite cities in Italy together with Venice! Considering the weather is the most important thing to consider when traveling to Italy or another country, you won’t have much trouble deciding when to get there. Florence has a Mediterranean climate and is never cold. The ideal months to go are September-October or April-May.
Yes, it may be an option for most of you to go in the summer, but since Florence is a tourist magnet, I think you should choose to stay away from the tourist seasons if you don’t want to walk around with hundreds of tourists and see people you don’t know on each of your photos.
Below I will list museums, churches and so on. You can use the Firenze Card to enter places, even skip the queue to wander unconscious tourists waiting in line and provide internet access, which is one of the biggest problems of travelers. If you use it, public transport is also included in the card.
As of 2019, the fee for Firenze Card is 85 Euros and is valid for 72 hours. There are several points where you can get your card when you reach Florence.
Places to Visit in Florence
It is very important to determine exactly where to visit in Florence. If you look at the Firenze Card site I mentioned above, there are over 60 museums in the tiny city. If you intend to visit them all, you will be very tired. One of the most important things you should know about the city is that everything is based on the Medici. The museum you visited, the church you saw, all the things the Medici did during the time.
This is a bridge that has become one of the symbols of Florence, which you can see in all Florence-themed films. Of course, the buildings on it are not used as a classic store, but mostly as a jewelry and gift shop. This bridge connects Palazzo Vecchio and Palazzo Pitti, where it is strange to return without seeing.
Galleria Degli Uffizi, originally called, is one of the most important museums in the world where there is no tail missing from the gate, and if you have a special interest in art, you can visit until your feet are wounded. Inside you can see the works of Leonardo, Michelangelo, Raffaello, Caravaggio, Goya, Botticelli, and many other famous artists. It is so exciting to see them that you enjoy your trip.
– One of the most important and most interesting works in the course is Botticelli’s Birth The Birth of Venuses.
At the gate of Uffizi, every period of the year is a serious line. If you take the Firenze Pass, this is your chance to jump the tail. If you are not going to take it, you have a chance to make a reservation on the internet.
– It’s closed on Mondays.
Santa Maria del Fiore
I can assure you that this cathedral, another symbol of Florence, is beautiful enough to make you dizzy when you see it. He is also known as the Duomo ((the duomo is the cathedral in Italian), so don’t get confused.
– There is a bell tower right next to it, you can climb to the top of it.
– The cathedral can be seen from many parts of the city, so you can use it as the main point when you go somewhere.
Galleria del Accademia
A place where you can see many of Michelangelo’s works. But most importantly, if you think that the Statue of David is known to look at a museum created for David bile even by the locals, you may not be interested in the rest of it.
– It’s forbidden to photograph the Albanian statue. But for some reason, the excitement comes after you. It’s a shame.
– It’s closed on Mondays.
I cannot say that Palazzo Pitti looks beautiful from the outside. But I don’t blame the Medici for this, because they weren’t the first to build this place. It was built in 1458 by another nobleman, Luca Pitti and named after him. The palace was later purchased by the Medici family. Medicines used in daily life are exhibited in what they have. You can also see Boboli Gardens for garden lovers, this is an ultra-large garden that belongs to the palace, and I think the most remarkable place in this palace, which contains the porcelain museum.
Piazza della Signoria
This is a beautiful square, home to the Palazzo Vecchio and home to many statues, including the representative statue of David. It is also one of the largest squares in Florence. Spending time here can make you feel “I’m really in Florence”. There are many cafes in the square where you can eat or have a drink.
– Palazzo Vecchio, of course, belongs to the Medicines.
Piazza Della Republica
This is one of the city’s beautiful and tourist attractions. Gilli and similar cafes are also in this area. You can enter every street around this square and wander until it disappears, and you can encounter various Italian beauties.
As the name announces, it is a very nice square to look down on the city and look at the most beautiful point. Not like a real panorama point, but still, the view is worthy of seeing.
