The Best Way to Spend a Day in Florence

Florence is such a beautiful place that tourists who visit once want to return again and again. You can explore Florence on foot, walking along the roads and visiting the best attractions. You can spend a whole week here and still be left with more to experience. So, if you had just a day in Florence, what would you do? Taking our Florence Full-Day Tour to discover the city’s magic is an excellent place to start.

On the tour, you get to see some of the most famous spots such as the Uffizi Gallery, Accademia Gallery, Santa Maria del Fiore, Ponte Vecchio and Palazzo Vecchio, the Leather Market and il Porcelino, Piazza della Repubblica and Orsanmichele Church. Now if that hasn't checked off most of the things on your list, you'll definitely need more than a day!
