Our tips for Florence

  • Don’t miss the Ponte Vecchio. Just off the via de’ Guicciardini, this epic bridge has held a space here since the Roman times. This iconic Florence attraction had it’s last fix was in the 14th century, after a flood in 1333 swept away most of the bridge.
  • Don’t expect a leisurely stroll around the Piazzo del Duomo. The crowds around this cathedral can make your journey more of a scramble rather than the peaceful Florence sightseeing experience you have in mind. Be sure to book skip-the-line tickets to avoid the outside throng.
  • Have a day under the Tuscan sun. Less than an hour’s drive from Florence, beautiful Tuscany beckons for a visit. If you can, take one of our Florence day trips to Tuscany and kick back in the Italian hillside, it’s worth it.

Good to know

If you head to Florence in spring or summer, be prepared for the tourist-frenzy that awaits. A city best experienced by wandering and dining alfresco means that the spring to summer months are heaving, and this will impact your Florence day tours considerably. Try a visit in autumn for a more authentic Italian experience and lower costs.
