If you don't want to work off all the sights one by one, you'll still get your money's worth at the Centro Storico: The old town is a work of art in itself.
Michelangelo, da Vinci and Boticelli await you in the Uffizi, the Accademia di Belle Arti, the Museo Nazionale del Bargello, the Museo dell' Opera del Duomo or the Palazzo Pitti. But numerous private galleries, workshops and small studios also entice people to come and see the artists at work.
The best place to relax is in one of the many beautiful parks and gardens that the Tuscan metropolis has to offer. After an ascent to Giardino Bardini or Giardini Boboli, you have an absolutely breath-taking view of the city and it is beautifully quiet. Another thing you shouldn’t miss if you can help it are the Renaissance palaces, for example, the Palazzo Rucellai and, of course, the Palazzo Medici Riccardi. After all, it is largely thanks to this famous dynasty and its wealth that Florence is one of the most beautiful cities in Italy, if not the world.
