When you think about Florence, the main things that probably come to mind are the art museums – and with good reason. Museums like the Uffizi Gallery and the Accademia are world-famous and deserve a prime spot on your Florence itinerary, And that’s not even mentioning all the churches and other galleries and museums tucked around the city that boast lesser-known masterpieces by Michelangelo, Ghirlandaio, and Donatello (to name a few).

Booking in advance to see Florence’s museums is highly, highly recommended.

As mentioned earlier, the main things that almost everyone comes to see in Florence are the art museums. And since these museums occupy historic buildings, museum officials limit the number of visitors that can be inside at a given time. Put these two things together – and throw in the fact that the city is always crowded with tourists – and you’ve got the makings of some very long lines.

I’ve heard reports of people getting up at the crack of dawn and still waiting 6+ hours in line to get into the Uffizi. This doesn’t have to be your travel tale, however. You can – and should – book your tickets to Florence’s top sights in advance, to make the most of your time in the city.  for tickets click here
