Things to do in Florence
Inspiration comes easily in Florence. A stroll along a cobbled street yields tiny cafes serving delectable pastries. Architecture and artwork that have withstood the test of time are practically around every corner.
If only one stop were on your itinerary it would have to be Galleria delgi Uffizi, one of the top things to do in Florence, but also in all of Italy. As one of the world's leading art museums, the Uffizi displays paintings and sculptures by Leonardo da Vinci, Botticelli, Michelangelo, and more.
The city is filled with cathedrals, but the true icon is Il Duomo, which is still regarded by modern architects as a masterpiece. You can climb 463 steps to the top and take in the view, which will likely stay with you for years to come.
Shopaholics are also well served here: Stroll chic Via de'Tornabuoni for big homegrown brands such as Prada, Louis Vuitton, Emilio Pucci, Ferragamo, and more; join in the fray at the San Lorenzo street market; or check out antiques along Via Maggio. Note that most shops are closed on Sundays.
