Frequently Asked Questions

The must-see attractions in Florence are Leonardo Interactive Museum, Boboli Gardens, Pitti Palace, Uffizi Gallery and Accademia Gallery.

Because Florence is best known as the birthplace of Renaissance art, visiting one of the city's world-class galleries is a must for first-time visitors. The Uffizi Gallery houses one of the world's most prestigious art collections, which includes two Leonardo da Vinci paintings and several Botticelli works. Another must-see in Florence is Michelangelo's famous David statue in the Galleria dell'Accademia.

All foreign citizens wishing to visit Italy for a short visit or for other reasons must apply for an embassy visa from an Italian government diplomatic office. To travel to Italy, any foreign citizen who is not a member of the Schengen Area must have a valid passport, regardless of whether they require a visa.

The Officina Profumo Farmaceutica is a wonderful hidden gem in Florence. It is one of the world's oldest pharmacies, having been founded in the 13th century. The beautiful gothic vaulted sales room now sells perfumes and wellness products. Torrigiani Garden is a private green oasis in the heart of Florence that has been meticulously transformed into a romantic English garden. Because private tours must be arranged with the owner, it's the ideal hidden gem in the city.

Florence is jam-packed with wonderful things to do, so plan on spending at least three to four days to see all of the main sights. This is enough time to visit two or three of the main art galleries, a few of the more notable churches, and some of the other major attractions that will give you a taste of Florence's vibrant culture. If you are especially interested in art and sculpture, you will need at least 5 days to visit all of the galleries.

Tagliatelle with Porcini mushroom and truffle is a delicious dish to try in Florence. The simple pasta with earthy local ingredients gives it an amazing depth of flavor, making it one of the city's most popular dishes. Cantuccini e vin santo are small almond biscuits known as biscotti in other parts of the world, served with sweet dessert wine for dunking.

Florence is a small city with all of the major tourist attractions within walking distance of one another. With narrow medieval laneways and all but local cars prohibited from entering the center, taxis can often take longer than walking. Another great way to get around is to rent a bike or go on a guided bike tour.

The months of May and June are ideal for visiting Florence because the weather is warm and the city comes alive with festivals and outdoor dining experiences. The major attractions are all open at this time, and the high tourist numbers and hot weather of July and August have yet to arrive.
