  • How not to go to Florence and not admire the Loggia dei Lanzi where is the statue of Perseus? A pass is a must.

  • An open-air museum. A sculpture gallery containing antique & Renaissance art. No entry ticket or charges for pictures. As night falls, sculpture will be lights up.  more »

  • Beautiful statues that are not hidden behind a paywall or long queues associated with museums. Gorgeous, must see.
  • The second place i came across on my visit. As someone who plays the assassins creed franchise it was heartwarming to see these buildings in person, the parade usually ends here and is great to watch
  • Watch out for pick pockets. It's nice to see nice statues in the open area for free.
  • Atmospheric introduction to classical Florence full of elegance and opulence! Was there in the evening as well as during a drizzle, quite awesome. As with most places with tourists, be on your guard for your personal belongings here.
  • One look at the gore hanging off Medusa's head and you know it's a masterpiece.

Where to stay in Florence

Variety is not a problem when deciding where to stay in Florence. The compact town center is packed with hotels, hostels, and small inns. The drawback of this upmarket central area is that even family-run B&Bs often cost as much as luxury hotels. For more affordable lodgings, explore the area outside the tourist-driven city center. Staying in one of the city's residential neighborhoods allows you to immerse yourself in the daily life of local Florentines. B&Bs and hotels outside the center offer private parking and spacious rooms, all within walking distance of the main tourist sites.
