Tourist information about Florence

In the city of Florence, the concentration of the cultural heritage in a relatively small space – that of the historical centre – is quite astonishing, and includes art, historical monuments, scientific collections, and important sites from the naturalistic point of view. Including the provincial territory as well, there are some 170 museums, in addition to churches of extraordinary beauty, villas, historical gardens, squares, streets, and antique palaces, so Florence can reasonably be defined as an "open air museum".
Firenze
Florence boasts an exceptional heritage of art, a splendid testimony to its centuries of civilisation, conserved for the most part in the more than 70 museums in the city. The most important of these are the Uffizi Gallery, one of the most renowned art galleries in the world, the Palatina Gallery, with its "Golden Ages" paintings, the Accademia Gallery with the world famous David by Michelangelo (and much more), the National Museum of Bargello, with Renaissance sculptures, the Museum of San Marco, with works by Beato Angelico, and the Archaeological Museum with notable Etruscan and Egyptian collections.

Very important parts of the city are Palazzo Vecchio and Palazzo Medici Riccardi. Thanks also to the strong impulse given by the Medici family, Florence is home to a series of important scientific museums, including the Specola and the new Galileo Museum. We recommend booking your visit to the state museums at the official website of the Polo Museale Fiorentino. Most of the state museums are closed on Monday.

In addition to the immense archaeological and architectural heritage, Florence also possesses botanical and environmental treasures, places for relaxation and recreation, starting from the Boboli Gardens, where art and nature create a perfect union, and not to mention the Bardini Gardens, on the hills near Piazzale Michelangelo, as well as historical gardens such as the Semplici Garden, or the vast area of the Cascine, a place for outdoor activities much loved by Florentines. In the summer months, it is well worth the time to spend a day in the extensive Pratolino Park, just a few kilometres from the city.

The Florentine territory is also studded with villas, palaces, and castles built over the centuries by the most important families, like the Medici who left important residences such as Villa della Petraia and Castello, Cafaggiolo, and Trebbio in the Mugello region, and the Medici villas of Cerreto Guidi and Careggi.
