Why hello there fellow travelers! Ralph
Cope here: Broke Backpacker ambassador and Italian fanatic. I’m here in Florence for the weekend with some friends and I’m gonna show you right now so my
favorite things to do in the city in 36 hours. So, Florence is well-known for several reasons; One: the epic dome of Brunelleschi. Two: it has amazing food. Three: I find it very, very romantic. So, let’s talk about how to spend a weekend in Florence. When you arrive the first thing that you need to do is visit a museum. There are many to choose from; right now I’m outside the Palazzo Vecchio. Eyes right here guys. Another one of my favorite places to visit in Florence is the Cappella Medici near San Lorenzo. It’s small but spectacular to see. If you’d like to hear more about the best museums in Florence, check out the Youtube description below for some more ideas. Don’t forget to take a break and grab some food while you’re at it. We ended up at one of the most famous sandwich shops in Florence: all’Antico Vinaio. It was so clutch. *BLEEP* that’s good! After eating a bit we’re going to head across the River Arno. We’ll take this opportunity to see the Ponte Vecchio but we won’t spend too much time here. Ultimately, we want to arrive at the Piazzale Michaelangelo. This place has amazing views of the city is the best spot in Florence to watch the sunset hands-down. Many people come here with their friends and a bottle of wine just to hang out on the steps together and to watch the sun go down. Time for some more Florentine deliciousness. Be sure to grab some dinner at a typical osteria and to try some local specialties like cinghiale or a bistecca fiorentina. A night in Florence isn’t complete without grabbing some after-dinner drinks. Santo Spirito is one of the best late-night spots in Florence and is my favorite place to have a glass of wine or maybe a negroni. We end our Florentine itinerary with the most iconic building in the city: the Duomo. Though magnificent to see from the outside, climbing to the top of Brunelleschi’s Dome should not be missed. It’s a long way up, but once you reach the top of the dome, well, I think the video speaks for itself. Alright guys, that the end of our weekend itinerary in Florence I hope you enjoyed it and I’ll see you next time. Remember, Florence is one of the most popular destinations in Italy so it might be a good idea to book accommodation ahead of time.
