Florence, city of art and culture

  8 votes
Florence is a beautiful city not to be missed by travellers to Italy. It has a mix of art, culture, food, sights, shopping and people watching. I think you would need to plan between 3 and 7 days to see this small city.

Florence is a perfect sized ctiy to visit as it isn't too big and overwhelming like Rome.
It is full of cafes, shops, museums, buskers and beautiful architecture every corner you turn.

Favourite spots:
The Uffizi gallery was wonderful. I really liked the statues in the hall and you can get wonderful photos looking over the river from the hall.
From the piazza Michelangelo you can have a stupendous view over Florence.

What's really great:
Everywhere in Florence there seems to be statues of naked heros and heroines!

I stayed in a dormitory of Santa Monaca hostel in the San Spirito are and it was great. Very cheap at 17€ per night. However it would be hot in summer because there is only 1 window and 1 fan.

Piazza San Spirito was very lively and there are a few restaurant here where you can eat well and slightly cheaper than in the very centre.
