    I’ve never been to Florence and it looks amazing. Great recommendations especially to those who loves architecture and history. Such impressive details on the Duomo-Cathedral of Santa Maria Del Fiore and the Leonardo Da Vinci Museum sounds pretty interesting. I’d love to see the scientific inventions of Leonardo Da Vinci. Such a refreshing way to see his works (which I normally associate with paintings).

    Florence looks beyond beautiful, and there are so many amazing churches to see. I never knew that the Duomo had colorful marbles. Our kids would love to see the Leonardo Da Vinci Museum and the Bargello Palace National Museum. Thanks for the list.

    The more I scroll through your post, the more badly and desperately I want to get to Europe, especially France and Italy. Omg, their worldwide renowned beauties… Wish me luck with that dream.


    Hey Eliza, I enjoyed Firenze when I visited but your photos are soooooo much better than mine. The mercado central was one of my favourite places ever!!

    My dream is to go to Italy, if only to drink the wine, eat the pizza and devour the pasta and then drink more wine! Your photos are stunningly beautiful and show off Florence perfectly. I can’t wait to see it all in person one day. Santa Croce looks so bold and proud

  • Iulia

    Despite having been to Florence, I haven’t had the chance to visit it too much, as I was on business. This piece makes me book my flight asap ? Would love to see how the Cathedral Santa Maria del Fiore was built or try out everything the food market has to offer ?? Safe travels ☺☺

  • Madhubani

    I am bookmarking this. Would help me on my trip to Italy in September. Thanks for sharing 🙂

  • Medha Verma

    Florence is such an elegant city! I loved the Duomo Cathedral and the view of the city from the top of the hill. Also, the architecture of Ponte Vecchio is superb! I think I missed the Boboli Gardens and Pitti Palace, because we decided to explore the countryside and did not spend a lot of time in Florence itself. Love the places you’ve shortlisted here, I think you’ve picked the best!

  • Stephanie Tay

    I’ve been to Florence a couple of years back, and there are so many places on this list that I’ve missed! I hope I get to return one day 🙂
