5 days in Florence

Jump to last reply

We are flying into Rome on Wednesday/Thursday morning (June 17/18)and we will be taking the train to Florence on Thursday for 5 nights and doing last minute planning! We hope to see highlights but we will not be too unhappy trading off seeing a "must see" tourist attraction for a little rest and relaxation and strolling around soaking up the atmosphere. Our hotel is very close to the Santa Maria Novella train station. Any thoughts on the following rough itinerary?

Thursday - Arrive in Florence (severely jetlagged in all probability)- explore neighborhood - seems very walkable!
Friday - Uffizi Gallery, Accademia ..
Saturday - Countryside Bike Tour - Booked
Sunday - Day Trip to Siena
Monday - Duomo, Ponte Vecchio
Tuesday - Travel to Rome

Thought I had booked tickets to Uffizi but can't find voucher! Any thoughts/comments. What would you recommend we get tickets online to?
Thanks for any help to a first time traveller!
