Your girls will love shopping the outdoor market stalls near San Lorenzo. Rome has no real equivalent of this.

Thanks Ellenem - my girls are going to love you!

Does anyone have any memories of things that boys (mine is 10 years old) really loved doing/seeing in Florence?

The Science and History Museum is full of mechanical object belonging to Galileo and including his mummified finger in a jar. However, it's was under renovation when I was there in March. Just a small portion of the museum was open. the webiste is unclear about what is open. If this is still true, I probably wouldn't bother with it.


One can climb both the bell tower and the dome of the duomo. The interior of the dome has a particularly gruesome Last Judgment, with a devil to give one nightmares.

Is there a Top10 Venice or Top10 Florence like this? I tried to search could not find....

I think there most definitely should be! This is an awesome list!

Many thanks to GoogleMaps GardKarlsen! Awesome utilization of GoogleMaps... I am doing the same for my trip.

I can hardly believe that nobody has included a cooking class in their top 10 of things to do in Florence. It may seem a little less serious that visits to the Uffizi & Accademia, but I can't think of a better way to wind down and relax after a morning at the galleries.

We took a class with Cook Eat Italian in the Santo Spirito zone and had a truly memorable experience.
