Maybe you should do a little research on your own first. We would have no idea of your interests or budget. Read up and thenn post more detailed questions.

The "Destinations" tab above will give you some ideas.

Full day or part of a day? Rushed or easy? Churches, museums, or both?

You can easily see the Duoma area, Santa Croce, Ponte Vecchio, and Piazza della Signoria. 3/4 to 1 day

The Uffizi is good, but will require 2-4 hours own its own. If you decide on the Uffizi, make reservations in advance.

With only one day, I would skip the Uffizi. Relax and enjoy what you can without killing yourself.

I don't know what you're interests are or what your budget is, but the following logistics will help if you only have 1 day and night:

1. Stay in a centrally located hotel so you don't waste time getting places. (HOTEL CASCI is one)

2. Make advance reservations for the Accademia (DAVID), the Uffizi (you can just hit the things you want to see and be out really quickly), and dinner.

3. Hire a private guide for a 3 hr walk around the city. You'll get SO much more out of your visit.

4. Climb Giotto's tower. It has shorter lines than the Duomo and gives a great view of the city.

5. Be prepared to get up early, stay up late, and walk-walk-walk. That way you can maximize your time. (Okay, a short nap before dinner is fine.)

6. Do you have a car?
Drive up to Piazza Michelangelo for the beautiful view on your way in or out of the city.

7. Buy a good guide book and research this forum. You can find out what you don't want to miss and what you can pass on. There's A LOT to see and do.

My best advice:
*** Good planning ahead will definitely help maximize the enjoyment of your short stay.***

Have fun!

The Duomo, hands down...The Uffizi, if it weren't too dark...
