Hi there, art buffs. If you’re looking for your next art European destination, Florence should be at the top of your list. The Renaissance vibes of its rich art scene will make you feel like you’re going back in time, in a good way. Here are four artsy spots you shouldn’t miss when visiting this Italian city.

Uffizi Gallery

Step into the Uffizi Gallery, the original home of Renaissance celebs like Leonardo da Vinci and Botticelli. It’s more than just a gallery – it’s an art time machine where every piece has a story to tell.

Accademia Gallery

Here, you can see Michelangelo’s most famous work, the David sculpture, face to face. Other than flexing impressive muscles, this statue is a demonstration of artistic genius. And it’s far from being the only interesting piece of art in this gallery.

Palazzo Pitti and Boboli Gardens

The Palazzo Pitti is a Renaissance castle filled with amazing art treasures. After you pay it a visit, you can continue for a stroll in the Boboli Gardens, where fabulous sculptures meet lush greenery.

Florence Cathedral (Duomo)

The Florence Cathedral, built over the course of 140 years, is the real deal and a must-see spot in the city. It’s not just a fancy dome or one of the biggest churches in Italy, but also a canvas filled with diverse frescoes and sculptures.
