If you know you only have one day in Florence, you’ll need to take advantage of the amount of time you do have, so you have to know the museum hours and the hour you are leaving the town.

Florence is home to some wonderful churches packed with religious, historic and artistic significance, such as Santa Maria del Fiore which is one of the most famous cathedrals in Italy due in large part to its dome – the largest in the world from when it was built in 1431 until 1888.

After the museums you decide to put on your schedule, you will be really hungry. Sitting down in a restaurant, will take up  a lot of precious for people with only one day in Florence. Instead, head to the San Lorenzo Market for a quick and delicious lunch in a veritable Florentine institution.

When the sun sets, settle in for an aperativo or pre-dinner drink, usually accompanied by some small plates in the nearest traditional wine bar you’ ll find.
