Florence Italy

1. Piazza della Repubblica

The Piazza della Repubblica is one of Florence’s main squares. The square marks the centre of the city ever since Roman times!

Within the square, you can find the Colonna dell’Abbondanza monument, a traditional merry-go-round, and small cafes.

2. Giotto’s Campanile

Giotto's campanile

Giotto’s Bell Tower is one of the main attractions of Piazza del Duomo. The bell tower is 94.7 metres high, making it the tallest tower in Florence!

You can climb to the top and overlook the city on the balcony, but there are over 400 steps to climb. The panoramic views from the balcony are beautiful and it is worth the climb.

3. Ponte Vecchio

Florence’s most famous and oldest bridge, Ponte Vecchio sits over the Arno and is best known for having jewellers across the bridge. The three arch bridge connects the main city to Oltrarno and is also Florence’s most photographed bridge.

The bridge first opened in 1345 and was the only bridge in Florence to survive WWII.

4. Uffizi Gallery

Uffizi Gallery is Florence’s most famous museum that holds art from Botticelli, Titian, and Caravaggio to name a few. There are over 100 rooms filled with amazing artwork from the Middle Ages to the modern era. We recommend setting aside three to four hours of your time to see it all!

It’s highly recommended to book tickets in advance as they can often sell out days before.

5. Palazzo Vecchio

The Palazzo Vecchio is the town hall of Florence. Inside, you go back in time where you can see paintings from the Renaissance period, Roman ruins and Medieval fortresses.

It’s certainly worth visiting to see part of Florence’s history with its own gallery of sculptures and other amazing things to see.
