Very busy place - fullof sculptures. Did not know which way to turn. Florence is one of my favourire cities and you can never get enough of it but you need to do it in manageable chunks or you will suffer from an overload of beautiful sights!

The art work is spectacular and worth the extra time to visit. One of the most memorable parts of our visit to... More

One of the must-see sights in Florence but everyone knows this and you will probably be tripping over most of them during your visit. There are a few places to sit, some out of the sun, but be sure to pace yourself and have plenty of water with you if it is in high summer / high season. Working your... More

This Piazza was just stunning! The details in the sculptures did not disappoint. It wasn't a fountain we were aware of being so close to the Pantheon but it was only a few minutes away by foot.

Staying in Uffizi

Neighbourhood Profile
Every visitor coming to Florence for the first time will immediately identify with Uffizi. As in past times, passing through Via dei Calzaiuoli, you can reach the city center, the Florence that everybody dreams of. In just a few steps, visitors can experience the rare beauty of the capital of the Renaissance. walking delighted across Palazzo Vecchio and overlooking Piazza della Signoria, up to the Loggia of the Uffizi where it is possible to fully taste the talent of the best artists who animated Florence over the centuries. When the sun goes down, there’s nothing better than a walk along the river Arno up to the ancient bridge, Ponte Vecchio. It is full of jewels and decorated by the colors captured in postcards.
