Travel to Florence


You only have to choose the destinations, they operate in 15 countries in Europe, dates and they show you the shortest route in all possible means of transport. They manage the booking and send you the tickets to your cell phone.

The truth is that we could not be happier with the change. Because the photos are spectacular and much more comfortable than the other one. In addition, it has Remote Control from the mobile and Wifi, so we can pass the photos to the mobile at the moment.

These museums are always full of people and you have to queue to enter so we decided to buy the advance ticket online on this page paying a supplement of 4 Euros to the 8 Euros that the ticket is worth, but we thought it was a good idea because we did not want to waste time in queues, we were only four days in Florence, and we did not want to stay without visiting both museums.

We hope this post has helped you to plan your trip. If you have any questions, suggestions or contributions, you can leave us a comment and we will be happy to help you in any way we can.

Firenze or Florence, an open-air museum and much moreFlorence is an open-air museum. This statement is always repeated by those who know it and it is enough to arrive for the first time in this city to verify it. Art emerges from the streets, fountains, squares, facades, bridges, museums and the Arno River that flows through it. History springs from every corner and the beauty is such that Florence makes an impact.

From the Ponte alle Grazie to the Americo Vespucci, 5 bridges are the main protagonists of this walk: the Ponte Vecchio is the most famous of them all. Countless bridges have been built and destroyed in the same place, but since 1495 the Ponte Vecchio has the shape we know today. It has always been populated by stores and since 1593 it has been almost exclusively for goldsmiths, jewelers and gold merchants, and in 1565 Giorgio Vasari built the Vasari Corridor to connect Palazzo Pitti and Palazzo Vecchio. During the Second World War all the bridges in Florence were destroyed, except for this one; it is said that Hitler knew this bridge and would have asked not to destroy it.ponte Santa Trinita is the best point to photograph the Ponte Vecchio, with the reflection on the Arno river and the surrounding buildings. Also from Ponte Carraia you can get good pictures.Aperitif at Lungarno
