From the Duomo to the Arno. As the home of the Renaissance and birthplace of the modern, urban lifestyle, Florence is Europe's cultural capital. This minute walk through the heart of Renaissance Florence starts at the soaring church dome that symbolizes the proud Renaissance spirit. We'll also see the bronze doors that opened the Renaissance, and walk the same narrow streets as Michelangelo and the Medicis. As we walk from the Duomo to the Arno River — about a mile altogether — we'll see the Florence of yesterday, but also the vibrant, trendy city that is Florence today. Don't forget to download the handy PDF companion maps.
So much to see, so little time. To help you plan your sightseeing, I've listed my ideal itineraries for Florence, whether you're going for one day, two days, three days, or more. Florence deserves at least one well-organized day: see the Accademia David , tour the Uffizi Gallery Renaissance art , visit the underrated Bargello best statues , and do my Renaissance Walk outlined in my guidebooks and available for free as an audio tour. Art lovers will want to chisel out another day of their itinerary for the many other Florentine cultural treasures. Shoppers and ice-cream lovers may need to do the same. The plans outlined below assume that you'll use my strategies to avoid wasting hours in line for the big attractions — especially the Uffizi Gallery and Accademia.
