    If you love art. Or even like art this place has an amazing collection of works from the 12th to 17 th centuries as well as some older works as well. It is huge and would take days to see everything.

    It's a fairly easy climb up several tiers of steps, each level punctuated with a siries of waterfall fountains built into the hillside, each level feeding the next set of fountains below. Once atop the hill at Piazzale Michelangelo, you are met with stunning views of the entire city and tuscan hills surrounding the city. Climb a bit further to a church above the piazza and you'll be treated to even more striking views and a beautiful church and cemetery. Best of all, it's all free (and good exercise).

    Ecclesiastical complex that serves as a Pantheon for some of the greatest Italian figures. The Church is fabulous with several chapels embellished with extraordinary frescoes.
    Of note is the magnificent high altar and the various funerall monuments of the basilica

    Beautiful Cathedral inside and outside. We booked the floor guided tour with a lovely and quirky guide who gave us a lot of insights in a very short time. The duomo from the inside and the paintingd are exceptional. Only regret is that you cannot seat in the cathedrale and enjoy the beauty and atmosphere

    Palazzo Vechio is one of the works of art not to be missed in Florence. Located in one of the most beautiful squares in the world, surrounded by wonders of Renaissance art. If the exterior is spectacular, the interior does not disappoint. There are several beautifully decorated rooms. The highlight of the visit is the fabulous hall of the 500. The Vasari frescoes and all the decorations are absolutely incredible.
    In addition, you will get to know some details of the history of Florence and its close relationship with the Medici family.
    Spectacular.

    Palazzo Pitti is a huge Renaissance Palace located near Ponte Vechio. It was the official residence of the Medici. Aggressive style and not very pretty on the outside, but it has several museums inside. Surrounded by Boboli Gardens.
    Noteworthy are the Palatine Gallery and the Real Apartments (with the extraordinary Medici art collection) and the Modern Art Gallery. The other museums are nothing special

    Extraordinary location. One of the most beautiful squares in the world. A return to the grandiose past of the Renaissance. The Palazzo Vecchio is the main attraction, but the entire square is wonderful: the statues of David, the fountain of Neptune, the Loggia dei Stanzi, the palaces surroundings everything is great. Always full of people, with terraces around it is truly a must to visit

    We sat in the garden below the church in a little field of daisies. We spent hours here eating strawberries, chatting, napping and listening to music. This is FREE (that is for you college students) and was probably one of the best things I did on my whole vacation.

    So much fun seeing all the food and merchandise. Plan on eating a lunch here. Ask the merchants about the products.

    Fabulous Museum with many wonderful works of art such as the original doors of the Baptistery, the reconstruction of the former facade of the Duomo, Michelangelo's Pieta, and many more.
    In contrast to the empty interior of the cathedral, this Museum is essential.

    Waited quite a bit to enter the tower but it was worth it. I wish they had better signage to point you towards the top level as the stairs are sometimes hidden within the columns. If you are sensitive to loud noises, I would not recommend going during the middle of the day as I did (at noon). The views were incredible from every level, and totally worth going up the steps. I would mention, for anyone claustrophobic, it does get very tight towards the top.

    Beautiful monastery decorated by one of the great pre-Renaissance painters, Fra Angelico. No crowds. And see the cell of Savonarola, the Mad Monk of the Medici times. Near the David. See both.
