  1. OMG I think I might need to cancel our current hotel reservations for Florence and change hotels to Hotel California!! Stunning rooms!! #WednesdayWanderlust

  2. Such a great guide to Florence. It’s always good to read about a place from someone who’s lived there and knows all its ins and outs. Florence is one of my favourite cities and I agree with you about the Santa Croce – the interior is amazing although the exterior of the Duomo always takes my breath away. Great tip about the guide for when you visit the Uffizi. #WanderfulWednesday

  3. Thanks so much for this great post.  We are headed to Florence soon so I was so excited to hear all of the recommendations that you gave.  I’ll be pinning it for future reference.  

  4. Your photos are absolutely magical and made me want to go to Florence pronto! The views from both the Boboli and Bardini gardens are stunning. I realise that I still have so much to discover in Italy. 

  5. Great tips! I used to live in Florence, so I really appreciate the gelato section. Such a magical city, and you go a great job of helping people get around.

  6. Wow! The Bardini Gardens look beautiful. We missed out on them when we visited. I love that you’ve included so many gelato places. One of my favorite things about Italy!! 

  7. I had a hard time finding good gelato spots in Florence without any prior research. Clearly I didn’t look hard enough as your recommendations look delicious! We liked Gusta pizza, but my favorite was O’Vesuvio. We went since it was the Jersey Shore place, but it was actually extremely good!

  8. I love this comprehensive guide! I’ve been to Florence for 2 days and it definitely wasn’t enough time! I wish I could’ve also visited the Da Vinci Museum. It looks amazing! Thanks for sharing this. This guide will help me planning my second trip 🙂

  9. Grazie mille for this in-depth review. My wife is Turinese and I live there halftime. I agree with most everything you say, but I’d swap your third day suggestion of going to Rivoli with Veneria. Veneria is so cool, especially when the garden is in bloom. I’d say it is no more difficult to reach on the Veneria Express (from Palazzo Reale or Porta Susa), or the 11 or… I think the 72 (both with a walk at the end).

  10. I was in Florence in Aug 2017 for some personal work. Although i did not visit many places but Cattedrale di Santa Maria del Fiore, The Uffizi, Galleria dell’Accademia. I was planning for Rome but due to lack time drop it. Hope to return soon.

  11. You’ll need to stay in Florence for at least 3 days if you want to see everything the city has to offer. Four days in Florence will give you a little more time to see the city if you’d like to travel more slowly.

  12. I was thoroughly impressed by your article. The way you approached the topic was refreshing, and I enjoyed the depth of analysis and research you put into it. Your writing style was engaging and easy to follow, making it a pleasure to read. Thank you for sharing your valuable insights, and I can’t wait to see what you write next.

  13. Your information has been incredibly helpful to me, and I am so grateful for the time and effort you put into gathering and presenting it. Your expertise and knowledge on the subject are truly impressive, and I feel fortunate to have had the opportunity to learn from you. Thank you so much for your generosity and support.
