Ponte Vecchio 4.0 stars

Uffizi 5.0 stars
Museum, Gallery, Exhibition - #3 of 20
Hannibal Lecter wasn’t the only person to recognize the Uffizi for what it is, so you’ll be hard-pressed to get in the traditional way. The smart way to get in here without queuing up half an hour before opening hours is to book in advance ... [more ]
Bargello 4.0 stars
Museum, Gallery, Exhibition - #4 of 20
For me, the Museo de Bargello is probably the best attraction that Florence has to offer, being crammed full of many famous works of art from the likes of Michelangelo, Donatello and Verrocchio. It is not as popular as the famous Uffizi ... [more ]

Castle, Fortification, Palace - #8 of 20
A very important building of Florence is the Palazzo Pitti. They say it is the most important castle in the city. But when you visit it, do not expect to see a grand palace, fairy-tale like. What you get to see is a huge building, painted in a ... [more ]

Church, Cathedral, Chapel - #16 of 20
