So much to see here! The marble statues were very impressive as was the copy of the David. To see the place where the original stood for centuries was very cool. Lots of places to get a bite to eat too.

A great place to visit before everyone is up and around. Get a pastry, sit before the city hall that has been there since the 1300’s and it will be a special time. Close to the Uffizi too!

This was brilliant because we had a guided tour with Frederika. She was very knowledgable and told us things we would never get from the audio guide. She also took us places you cannot go unless on a tour.

The views from the top of the tower are amazing, is worth the many steps up. The palazzo itself is also nice to check.

Every visitor coming to Florence for the first time
will immediately identify with Uffizi. As in past
times, passing through Via dei Calzaiuoli, you can
reach the city center, the Florence that everybody
dreams of. In just a few steps, visitors can
experience the rare beauty of the capital of the
Renaissance. walking delighted across Palazzo Vecchio
