Visiting Florence Italy: 3 Must-See Tourist Spots
Europe is overflowing with incredible tourist destinations and historic must sees, so when visiting Florence, Italy, we have a few tips.
First and foremost, it’s highly recommended that you save some money by doing the bulk of your European travel, at least when visiting Florence, during an off season (November to March) or non-peak tourist season. You can spend half the cost of what you would otherwise spend during summer and peak travel months.
Florence is, of course, one of the most beautiful and historically rich cities in the world, but not all of the sites are outdoors. So, if you choose to take your cultural vacation during the fall or winter, bring an extra layer of clothes, but have no fear as the weather can still be quite crisp and beautiful.
It’s often recommended that you make reservations, not for meals but for museums, especially during the touristy months. But, when you travel to these places during less crowded times, you can very likely just walk right in, even waiting less time than those with reservations. You may still have to wait, and there are no guarantees, but this is what we've found.
Now, let's get down to the 3 must-see tourist spots when visiting Florence:
- The Uffizi Gallery.
One of the oldest and most famous museums in the world.
- The Accademia.
Home to Michelangelo's David and also one of the most famous museums.
- Duomo Cupola.
This is the Florence Cathedral Dome. One of the best known images of Florence, you will definitely enjoy this one.
Between historic sites and wonderful restaurants, the list is endless. But, this should get you started on your journey when visting Florence.
