Florence is a city packed with Renaissance architecture and art, museums, boutique shopping and fine, Tuscan cuisine.
It would be a crime to visit the city and not take a look at Renaissance masterpieces. Head to the Galleria dell'Accademia, which displays Michelangelo's 'David‚' sculpture and the Uffizi Gallery, which showcases Da Vinci's 'Annunciation'. Top things to do in the city include a visit to the Duomo, which is a stunning cathedral with a bell tower, walking the city's winding, cobbled streets, and marveling at medieval churches and chapels.
Florence is a small city and you'll find nearly all the top sights, shopping and restaurants within walking distance from the city center. If you've got cash to spend, stay in Piazzale Michelangelo for amazing views of the city. Meanwhile, you'll find great budget and boutique options near the Santa Maria train station, which is just a five-minute train ride to the Duomo Cathedral.
The best time of year to visit is in the spring (April-June) and the autumn (September-October) when the days are sunny and mild. The city can get very hot and stuffy during summer months (July and August).
