Florence's Big Hitters: Duomos, Piazzas, and Museums
Florence is home to an immense wealth of art, artefacts and world-class sights. Top museums include the Accademia for Michelangelo's celebrated David and the Uffizi for the Botticellis. To avoid the crowds, head to the San Marco museum and Fra Angelico's ethereal frescoes. The Duomo, Florence's vast cathedral, is a must-see and Piazza della Signoria, with its monumental statues and fountains is a good stop for a coffee between sights. Piazzale Michelangelo offers views of the whole city.
