My Florence Itinerary: please

Jump to last reply

For those who commented on my Venice itinerary, yes this is the same trip. As soon as I leave Venice I will be taking the train to Florence.

I will arrive in Florence on September 26 and depart on September 29. I have drawn up an itinerary I would love for some experienced travelers to look at and let me know how it fares.

My wife and I are 35 and 31, will be staying near the Duomo area and like to get up early and walk a lot. We want to find the balance between seeing a lot without having a chaotic visit.

DAY ONE:
Arrive in Florence via Train at 11:30 am and taxi to our hotel/Check In

In the afternoon, visit the Duomo and Battistero San Giovanni. If there is time, also check out the Museo dell'Opera del Duomo.

Gelato, Dinner, maybe some more gelato

DAY TWO:

In the morning, visit Galleria dell'Accademia and Piazza/Museo San Marco. Afterwards, visit the Piazza della Signora en route to the Uffizi galleries.

In the late afternoon, take a bus south of the river to the Palazzo Pitti and its gardens, and hopefully, end the day with a visit to the San Miniato al Monte and drinks at Piazzale Michaelangelo.

Gelato, Dinner, maybe some more gelato

DAY THREE:

We are hoping to use day three to do a day trip to visit Pisa and Lucca, so I'm hoping the first two days are reasonably planned.

Thanks for any help!
