    Arrow Time Spent at Places of Attraction

    Good afternoon.

    I will be in Florence at the end of May and am interested in quite a large number of attractions. However, I am unsure how much time to be spent at most of them with little information provided from Trip Advisor.

    May I know the average time which should be allocated for the following places of interest?
    1. Basilica of San Lorenzo
    2. Basilica di Santa Croce
    3. Basilica of Santa Maria Novella
    4. Palazzo Medici Riccardi
    5. Galleria dell’ Accademia
    6. Pitti Palace’s Palatine Gallery
    7. Uffizi Gallery
    8. Boboli Gardens
    9. Palazzo Vecchio
    10. Piazza del Duomo attractions, which include Cathedral, Dome, Baptistery, Bell Tower, Crypt and Museum


    Thank you in advance

    Default my opinion

    Hello,

    You can do all in about 30 mins each with 3 exceptions.
    Boboli garden: can possibly see most of it in 3 hours but if you catch a nice day you might end up wanting to stay much more
    Uffizzi: 2 - 3 hours
    Duomo attractions 2 hours
    This is the time to see the places and don't include waiting in line time. Also it's my opinion. Art LOVERS may spend slightly more time at each location.

    Default Time at the attractions

    Buongiorno,

    I believe Leonardo is spot on for many attractions - however, I would say an hour if not more at Palazzo Vecchio and definitly Palazzo Pitti. As you can see in the article I linked to, Palazzo Pitti is actually several museums all together - so depending on how many you visit ....

    Buon Viaggio,

    Donna Denise

    Take a look at this 3 day itinerary - https://www.visitflorence.com/itiner...-florence.html
    It covers many of the sights you want to include, and in general just gives you a general idea of how to divide them things up between morning and afternoon - with breaks in between.

    You really don't want to rush from one thing to the next in any case, you'll get tired to too much art

    And you definitely do not want to include the Uffizi or Accademia both on the same day --- how many days total will you have?

    Apologies for the late response.

    I will spend 5 days in Florence total, 2 days of which will be spent at Siena and Pisa.

    Tentatively, this is the idea:
    Day 1 (Arriving in Florence by noon)
    Chiesa di Santa Maria del Carmine
    Ponte Vecchio
    Uffizi Gallery

    Day 2
    Basilica of Santa Maria Novella
    Basilica di San Lorenzo
    Riccardi Medici Palace
    Galleria dell'Accademia

    Day 3
    Piazza del Duomo,
    Basilica of Santa Croce
    Palazzo Vecchio
    Pitti Palace

    Looks good! Day 3 seems a bit full but am sure you can be flexible with your other two days, particularly the day you spend in Pisa (you can take the morning in Florence to catch up on any places you missed and then head to Pisa for the rest of the day).
