  • Very special place, particularly by all cemeteries of the important and less important persons who are buried there. Furthermore, the leather school established there is a pleasant refreshment. One can the Leatherworkers at work and very nice leather pieces purchases. Further is the square piazza santa croce also a pleasant place for a moment to linger. The piazza is during very hot days, a very warm place so a little precaution at high heat.

  • In Florence there is always immersed in bellezza......la visit to this Museum further confirms this thesis. The works on display are top notch and very well exposed, with a chronological journey that traces the history of Florence and, somehow, of the culture of the whole Italy. We would like to give one tip: many of the works on display are at head height and without any protection from vandalism. Although, we noted, the staff are always attentive and present, sometimes certain situations are unpredictable; We would recommend, therefore, to put physical protections, such as exposed in front of the glass works. Speaking of the staff, I want to point out the courtesy and professionalism of the staff, always ready to advise you, follow you or tell you what you're admiring. Well done! Keep it up!

  • Make sure you have a guide to explain the history that you are seeing. High points are the tombs of Michelangelo and Galileo, but there is much more. Beautiful place.  more »

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.
