Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    Great view point and wonderful for sunset! Easy hike as well, not too steep. It can get crowded as it is not a 'best kept secret', but it's a very pleasant place with a nice atmosphere.

    For me, no trip to Florence is complete without a trip to this Basilica. I know, you're in Italy and there are a thousand Churches with exquisite paintings and sculptures. So what makes the Basilica of Santa Croce different?
    Florence is the cradle of the Renaissance and in the Basilica are the above ground crypts of some of the greatest artists and thinkers of this time.
    Highlights are the crypts of Michaelangelo, Rossini, and Galileo (even though Galileo is buried elsewhere) and many others. They are all phenomenal works of art but the crypt that always brings me to tears (even now) is Dante's - with 3 sculptures above his crypt: one representing Italy, one representing Art and the third, bent over in anguish is Literature.
    Do yourself a favor and visit this Basilica.

    What an amazing experience. Buy the earliest tickets you can, take water, and prepare to be awed by the awesome experience and we'll deserved view of the inside of the dome (silence please) and the 360 degree view from the top. When you finish, look back up and imagine where you climbed to get there. You will be surprised at where you climbed!

    The entire plaza in Florence is well worth a visit and we would 100% recommend visiting it. It was the most beautiful city we saw when we were travelling around Italy and it is a must-see! If you book the tickets on the official website for the landmarks (see here - Opera Duomo Firenze) you can choose different types/groups of tickets to suit you. We would have loved more time in Florence as we were only there for 2 days, 3 days would be perfect as it is quite expensive to eat/stay (more expensive than Rome!) but the views from the dome and tower are breath-taking!

    The opera del duomo museum is not to be overlooked either as it gives you so much history and background to the city of Florence as well as the Piazza del Duomo.

    Impressive architecture, quality food, and plenty of shopping! Not to mention the delightful gelato! Took an eye-opening tour of the Palazzo Vecchio as well.

    Climbing to the top of the dome was an incredible way to see views of the city, and of course the artwork of the dome.

    The art itself is intense, a lot going on in those scenes.... The stairs could be quite narrow in some areas, but overall the climb wasn't too bad. The only downfall is having people who are crowding around while trying to climb. This was a perfect way to spend a day while it was raining outside.

    This is another piazza you just can't miss when in Florence. Surrounded by old buildings, it's perfectly beautiful. Though not the place to necessarily hang out for long if you don't want to be surrounded by gazillions of tourists!

    There are several historical religious buildings in Florence. In my opinion, this one is the most beautiful, although others seem to be more popular. It is located on a hill, with very nice views of the city.

    The range of foods is great. We had the stuffed canoli (with ham), trapezzini with pork, the mixed seafood grill, and biscotto gelato with chocolate, all from different stalls.

    Worth every penny just for the veiws. You can see the whole of venice from a great hight. You take a lift to the top and then you can stay up there as long as you want. We had to go but I would recommend staying till closing time just to see the sunset go down over venice.

    Ponte Vecchio is iconic - you just have to cross it when in Florence. It's very crowded though, maybe go early.

    Underrated! Too any people walk right past this museum and don't appreciate what it holds!

    It is worth the fee just to see Donatello's David. They also have the two proof panels for the competition for the golden doors at the Duomo's baptistry.

    Take 30 minutes and enjoy!

    The Medici Chapel is absolutely unmissable. The Medici family's pantheon reveals its power and wealth. Located next to the Basilica of S. Lourenço, it consists of two parts: The Princes' Chapel and the New Sacristy (designed by Michelangelo) Both are fabulous .In the New Sacristy it is worth noting the spectacular sculptures by Michelangelo -The Allegory of Time and the Medici Madonna. The Capela do Principes is a true spectacle of wealth and ostentation.
    A word of advice: buy tickets online by appointment to avoid the long lines. The price is 9 euros which are well worth it.

    This was my first taste of Florence, immediately after going out from the railway station. It looks beautiful and gives you an “appetizer” of your Florence tour.

    Wonderfully beautiful architecture.

    When you stroll around, don't forget to slow down and appreciate the amazing buskers or painters. They bring the artistic Florence alive.

    Learning the history of the Renaissance and the Medici family will bring a fresh angle to see Florence.
