Cultural things to explore

I'm talking museums, sculptures, architecture.   This will be my very first time in Florence (first time in Italy, actually), so I want to see it all!  I'll be in Florence for at least a week in May-June of next year, so if there are any cultural events during that time, I'd love to hear about it, too!

    The Uffizi line is very long. Inside are rich family’s statue collection and many stunning alter pieces. Best part are the tapestries.

    The Accademia is more enjoyable and easier to get in than Uffizi. Has a wicked instrument exhibit. Play the big brass bowl and then smell your hands. Bring sanitizer. The outdoor statue of David is a replica. Indoor David at Academia is stunning.

    A lot of good suggestions here...you must go to Uffizi Gallery and Academia! Other off-the-beaten path ideas: The Museo Galileo is a good choice if you’re into the sciences. Leonardo da Vinci Museum has replicas of his inventions. It’s a hands on museum! It is a close walk from the duomo. Speaking of duomo...climb to the top of Brunelleschi's Dome. It is fascinating to walk between the two domes and imagine it being built. There is also an exhibit when you climb back down with lots of tools from the time period.

    Have an awesome time. You picked a great city to absorb the culture.

    One of the most noteworthy museums in Florence is the Accademia Italiana. It houses enthralling statues and paintings of the Grand Renaissance artists such as Sandro Botticelli, Domenico Ghirlandaio, Michelangelo, and many more.

    Uffizi Gallery is, without a doubt one of the biggest treasures Florence has to offer.

    Do not stand in line for the Uffizi. There should be no line 60-90 minutes before closing and the sunset --- well, do not miss it.

    I love the Mercato Nuovo. This was a fun market to walk around. There were a lot of soccer outfits for sale here. If you are looking to go shopping for great Italian souvenirs this is your place!

    Ditto on the Uffizi Gallery and the Academia--to NOT see David while in Florence is like not going to Florence at all. The BEST advice I can give--book things in advance. Visit websites, then plan days to see the big stuff, and buy tickets in advance. Some may mean extra fees but it is worth it. A) in this day & age, it is easy to do and B) you save so much time.

    Shopping is great--get a leather coat. They sell many in the markets.
