The churches of Santa Maria Novella and Santa Croce are then real art galleries, as well as the Laurentian Library is an exceptional expression of Michelangelo's architectural genius. We advise you to reserve a bit of time to also visit the important and collections at Palazzo Pitti.
When you tire of seeing museums and art galleries, go to open and you will discover that in Florence it's nice just to walk the beautiful streets of the historic center. Walk until you reach the 'Arno, dwell on the romantic Ponte Vecchio and continue until the Oltrarno, the most "new" in Florence. Spend a day at the Boboli Gardens or climb over the hill behind Piazzale Michelangelo and go to the church of San Miniato al Monte to enjoy an amazing view of Florence.
