The Cathedral, or Duomo, is a principle attraction in Florence. Marvel at the gothic interior and the huge dome which dominates the skyline. The building was constructed over centuries and built on the original site of an earlier cathedral which dates back to the 5th century. Hop off at Piazzale Michelangelo for a breathtaking, panoramic view of the city. To admire Michelangelo’s famed Statue of David, visit the Accademia Gallery. Those who appreciate the arts will also enjoy a visit to The Uffizi Gallery or the churches of Santa Maria Novella and Santa Croce which are authentic art galleries. Hop off at the Arno River and cross the Ponte Vecchio which takes you from some of the oldest streets in the city to Oltrarno which is located south of the river. Take time out at the Boboli Gardens or climb the hill to the church of San Miniato al Monte to experience an enthralling view of Florence. Hop Off at the Piazza Della Liberta. From there you can take a short walk to San Marco, a religious complex comprising a church and a convent. The convent is now a museum and was once home to both painter Fra Angelico and preacher Giro Savonarola during the 15th century. The Fortezza is a masterpiece of military renaissance architecture and today is the main venue of the Florence Congress Congress & Exhibition Citidel.
Plenty of things to do, by day or night, in this lively stunning city.
Your 48 hour valid ticket will help you plan your stay in Florence and help you get about during the day. During the evening there is still plenty to do as nightlife in Florence is energised by the city's foreign students who come to study Italian and art history. The main region for relaxing in the evening is concentrated around Piazza della Signoria which has a relatively tranquil atmosphere when compared to the more lively nightlife district in Oltramo. The city boasts flexible licensing hours with some pubs open until 1am or as late as 3am. For those seeking cultural entertainment, there are a number of jazz cafes and often one-off recitations are performed in churches and piazzas around the city.
