    Single tickets € 15: Cathedral Duomo, babtisterij, Opera Museum. The Dome ticket is taken in advance for a fee. Magnificent Museum, modern, excellent Interior and Exposition. Enough places for rest, convenient overview and main excellent air-conditioning. So you can enjoy the masterpieces, which are not considered.

    That might tend to remove Guide to Japan, including Michelangelo's Pieta but too much detail missed, so from the visit! Excavated numerous contemporary design hotel, I don't understand if you're in the interesting (laughs) Pieta by Michelangelo was wonderful. I was impressed most in Michelangelo's in the personal. Café at the Museum of fine arts, delicious espresso and bread was just resting.

    The duomo and Bell took a group of entries that included the Museum. The Museum was a surprise. There were many sculptures, among other things, the original door of the Duomo, etc...

  • Brunelleschi's death mask and Donatello's Zuccone (Donnie's fave) were the star attractions for us. Great to see the Gothic facade too. The path was a little winding but fun.
  • wonderful museum. you cannot miss it. Check the official website of the museum to buy the "skip the line" ticket to access the museum; the basilica of Santa Maria del Fiore-, Giotto Tower and Batisterium easily.
  • Amazing place to visit with wonderful treasures. Could spend several days examining everything. Staff are helpful, friendly and helm to answer any questions. Don't miss the view of the Duomo from the roof terrace!
  • A modern museum that's worth visiting to escape the summer heat of Florence. Otherwise, worth a 15 min visit with your Duomo all inclusive ticket
  • Another fabulous museum in Florence. Mary Magdalene by Donatello enthralled me as did Ghiberti's "Gates of Paradise". Michelangelo and so much more ... a must see.

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.
