How many days for Florence to see the following?

Jump to last reply

I have made a wish list of places/things we would like to see in Florence. I keep reading that Florence is a compact city and sites are not that far apart from each other. However, with the following list, how many days would be ideal--not rushing like a lunatic and having time for some gelato and food along the way too.

Academia--for the David statue---need advance purchase tickets here right?
Uffizi--for a few hours tour--again need advance ticket purchase here
Doumo--is it worth it to climb the dome or better to just view the Doumo from Piazza Michelangelo?
Museum dell opera del Doumo--how long needed here--a couple of hours?
Borgello Museum--about 2 hours?
Pitti Palace and Boboli Gardens--again all day? half day?
Palazzo Vechio--understand this is open in the evenings as well for viewing?
Brancacci Chapel--how long a visit needed?
Galileo Museum--about 2 hours?

Thanks in advance.
