Florence Itinerary - is this do-able?

Jump to last reply

Would love some feedback of whether my thinking is too ambitious. I'll be in Florence for four nights in mid-October, which I'm thinking will be the art-heavy portion of my trip.

This is what I'm thinking:

Thursday afternoon: arrive by train from Rome - settle in to B&B, dinner and a good night's sleep.

Friday - Museo di San Marco in the morning, lunch and wandering around, Galleria Dell 'Accademia later in the day, dinner

Saturday - Medici Chapels in the morning, explore the Central Market and possibly lunch there, Uffizi Gallery later in the day, dinner

Sunday - Boboli Gardens in the morning, lunch and wandering around, possibly the Costume or Modern Art Gallery after lunch, dinner

Monday - check out of B&B, pick up car and head to Tuscany

Since so many of my interests are covered by the Firenze card, I am strongly considering purchasing one (with the added benefit of not having to pre-schedule my visits, so I can make adjustments on the fly if needed). And of course, the wandering around will include looking for great caffe and gelato - maybe chocolate. You know, the basic neccessities.

Does this sound like too much? Is there something else that you would recommend that I don't have listed?

Thanks!
