Walking tour: florence in a day

Florence in a day: how to to discover the best of Florence in a day or so

Sunset in Florence

Florence is a magical town, and one of the most visited places in Italy. The view of Palazzo Vecchio and Santa Maria del Fiore ad sunset, from Piazzale Michelangelo, is simply unforgattable.

I just stumbled upon a fantastic post from Hanna and Meg of Florence for free. It’s a perfectly engineered itinerary, from 9.00 AM to 9 PM, that succeeds in covering most (if not all) Florence Must Sees, from Santa Maria Novella church to Florence Duomo. You might need some time to recover after such a Tour de Force,  but if you are short of time you can’t find a better logistics!

You can also split the itinerary in two days, so to have enough time to visit Florence famous museums, such as the Galleria degli Uffizi, the Accademia and Palazzo Vecchio, or to spend an afternoon at the Giardini di Boboli and at Forte Belvedere.

Hanna and Meg post comes with a map, detailed information and a strict time table. So put up a comfortable pair of sneakers and enjoy your walk!

Florence for Free

Hi, we’re Hannah and Meg, and we’re obsessed with Florence. Recently, we took a step back and wondered, “Hey H&M, do you really think everyone wants to pack up their lives and move to Florence?” While we’re shocked the answer isn’t a unanimous YES!, we’re coming to terms with a new reality. Say you’d rather move to a charming town like…Parma, and only take a day trip to Florence. I mean, if you dared me to, I’d move to Parma (again).

So! With the new year comes a new series of day-long itineraries in Florence. They will be for those that have limited time in the city but want to make the most of their visit. We’ll have walks for art-lovers, shoppers, shade-seekers and more. To kick things off, we’re starting with a back-to-basics, 12-hour run-down of free things to do in Florence in moderate (read: not July or August)…

  1. thanks again for your kind lead in here! we admit it’s a tough timetable to stick to, but we also could never advise anyone to only spend 12 hours in florence 🙂 we like your point about splitting it up…maybe we’ll have to do a weekend itinerary, too!
