Florence, Italy Travel Guide - Art, Culture & Off the beaten track - 3-Day Itinerary

Three days is not a very long time to explore Florence, but it is enough to see some of the world’s most important art as well as to get a good feel for this city… as long as you plan every detail! If you follow this itinerary, written by a travel expert who lives in Florence, you won’t end up disappointed because a museum is closed or a restaurant is no longer good.

This itinerary is perfect for the first-time visitor to Florence or for anyone interested in learning about art and culture while they travel.

This guide provides tips on the best things to see and do in Florence, with specific suggestions that will give you the best possible experience and help you avoid the tourist traps! It covers the major sites, combining museums, churches, shopping and leisure so you don’t get tired or bored. It includes places to visit that you might not have found on your own, and specific restaurant suggestions so that you can taste the best of Florence.

As most museums in Italy are closed on Mondays, Day 3 is planned to suggest what to do in Florence on a Monday in case your trip includes this day that traditionally poses some difficulties for travelers.

Written by a long-term resident with a PhD in art history, following this itinerary means having an expert in your pocket!

5.0 out of 5 stars Very thorough itinerary May 7 2012
By Jessica S. Spiegel - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
This is a really thorough itinerary for a 3-day visit to Florence; it's best if you've never been before and want to make sure not to miss any of the "must-see" attractions and also don't want to waste time on things like long lines or backtracking. There's even a whole day's worth of stuff to do that works on Mondays, when many Florence museums are closed. The pace of the itinerary isn't too rushed, either, so if you're super speedy you could add a few more sights/activities - or just enjoy the slower pace!

5.0 out of 5 stars Not just Renaissance art July 16 2012
By Katja - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Even for somebody like me, who has lived in the Tuscan countryside for years Florence is still overwhelming. What are the must sees apart of the Uffizi and Florence' cathedral? Where to start to make some sense of it all? The Unanchor guide to the city is a perfect helper for people who want to get a great introduction to the Renaissance without losing out on ice-cream stops and shoe shopping. Art historian Alexandra Korey literally takes you by the hand and makes sure that Italian history and culture come alive even for people who slept through their history lessons at high school.

I especially liked the author's attached tailor-made guide to the Uffizi. Anybody who has ever been at this world famous museum knows that you better arrive prepared to avoid getting lost between all the masters of Renaissance art.

The guide's scheduled out day walks were a novelty to me, but proved to be very useful together with the detailed city maps. And it's easy enough to tweak the schedule if you decide to sleep in after a late night in town.

5.0 out of 5 stars fantastic itinerary! May 3 2012
By M Madeline Clarke - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
The author of this itinerary has a Ph.D in Renaissance art history and has lived in Italy for a decade, so travelers to Florence who follow the detailed 3-day schedule described here will be sure to see Florence's most important art and architecture. But not only that, Alexandra has made sure that the traveler doesn't get museum-weary (which is very easy to do in Florence) by balancing the city's incredible museums and art with coffee breaks and gelato breaks, walks, shopping, and other sights.

The itinerary includes photos, excellent food suggestions, and some great cultural tips in addition to a useful overall summary. I also liked that she included suggestions for vegetarians. The information about major works of art covers the important things, you won't need a guide book or tour guide. I don't know Alexandra personally but I've been following her blog [...] for years and her suggestions are always great, so when this book came out I jumped on it! I've planned many days in Florence for travelers and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend that someone follow this itinerary to the letter.

5.0 out of 5 stars Extremely Helpful! Oct. 11 2013
By Love 2 Read - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Well-written, concise, and filled with smart ideas - not just for sights to see, but also restaurants. Loved the way the day was planned, so we had an idea how much time to allow for something. It was the only guide I had in e-book form, so we often referred to it on our mini-ipad while on the go. It was a lifesaver!

5.0 out of 5 stars Useful advice from a local July 14 2013
By Jenna Francisco - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I loved this itinerary! I have been to Florence several times yet found this itinerary full of useful information for a first-time visitor or return visitor like me. The author clearly knows the city, including the history and details behind the places she recommends. She also gives useful information about what to do on Mondays, when many of the city's museums are closed, where to eat in the city center, and how to get the most of your time in Florence by avoiding museum lines. I also liked the pace of the itinerary--she includes downtime for resting and alternative activities which allow for flexibility.
