Next stop-Florence

Jump to last reply

My husband and I are doing a 2+ month long trip of Europe August-October 2015. Fly into London and out of Rome.

This is my proposed itinerary for Florence. We have never been to Florence before. Will have 7 nights here. May book hotel or apartment. Arriving from Venice via train.

day 1-arrive Florence, check in to hotel or apt., get supplies if apt.

day 2-Bargello, Piazza della Signoria

day 3-Duomo, Campanile, Baptistery, Museo dell'Opera del Duomo a long day!

day 4-Uffizi Gallery, Palazzo Vecchio, Ponte Vecchio

day 5-day trip to Pisa or Lucca

day 6- Medici Chapels, San Lorenzo

day 7-Accademia Gallery, San Marco Museum

Here's where I'm stuck. I need to find a spot for Santa Croce, Jewish Ghetto/Sinagoga, Pitti Palace, time for picnic in Boboli Gardens, Santa Maria Novella, Piazzale Michelangelo. Any suggestions? If necessary I can forego the day trip which opens up a day. Day 2 is light so maybe something else there? Could I add to day 4?? I may have time to do something on day 1 but I was thinking to use that day to just kind of wander around with no clear purpose in mind.

Florence has got me stumped. Any advice, suggestions, things to add, things to drop-any help would be greatly appreciated.
