How to Spend Three Days in Florence

Florence is an incredible city located in the heart of Italy in the region of Tuscany. In 1450, Florence became the birthplace of the Renaissance as it was the home of acclaimed artists such as Donatello, Masaccio, Filippo Lippi, Botticelli, Leonardo da Vinci, and Michelangelo. Florence has the greatest concentration of art (in proportion to its size) in the world. If you love exploring museums and wandering historic streets, then Florence is going to be perfect for you. However, you will definitely want to plan ahead. Florence is crowded with tourists from April to October. Tickets to popular museums, such as the Uffizi Gallery and Accademia, are regularly sold out. But don’t let this discourage you. Experiencing Florence is a must-see place on your travel bucket list. Just follow our three-day itinerary and you will be ready for your Italian vacation!
