Florence is the capital of the Tuscany region in Italy that is regarded as a cultural, architectural and artistic gem. The birthplace of the Italian Renaissance, it was the most important city in Europe in terms of culture, as well as of economics and politics, for around two and a half centuries from some time before 1300 to the early 1500s. Today, it is one of the most popular destinations in the region.

Sightseeing destinations in Florence

There are many places to go in Florence where you can find famous and lesser-known museums, upcoming exhibits, interesting attractions and boutique shops that carry a true line of Italian goods. One of the best tourist spots in this city that has so much cultural heritage is the Uffizi, where you will have the opportunity to see the Duomo Cathedral, the Baptistery and Michelangelo’s “David”.

Top tour activities in Florence

When planning a vacation in Florence, figuring out what activities to take part can be quite difficult, given the many options you will have. However, you can make it easier by prioritizing the most popular things to do in this city.

  • Climbing the Duomo or Campanile - You can see some of the best views of the city by traversing the winding staircases inside the Duomo or the bell tower nearby. Not only that you can see how large the Duomo is, but will also be able to get a good look at the city’s impressive churches and places, as well as the Tuscan countryside in a distance.
  • Enjoying the Views from the Piazzale Michelangelo - The Piazzale Michelangelo is a big square on a hill that you can easily reach on foot using the stairs called Rampe di San Niccolò. Situated along the Arno River, the place offers great views, especially during summer and at night with the spectacular city lights.
  • Taking a Walk at the Boboli Gardens - Located behind the Pitti Palace, the extensive Boboli Gardens offer excellent views of numerous sculptures and of the city itself in a relaxed environment. While at it, you can stop in the hilltop café to grab a refreshing drink and sit for a while alfresco.
  • Watching the Street Performers by the Uffizi - Evening street performances by the famous gallery can range from people dressed as sculptures to violin duets. This is a nice stop during your tour, where you can also eat an after-dinner gelato.
