Of course you’ll want to plan enough time to go to the ‘must see’ spots but there is much more to be discovered with a bit of wandering. For example, Florence is home to Michelangelo’s masterpiece, the David which resides at the Galleria dell’Accademia. Our advice? Get there first thing and avoid the crowds if possible.. The wonderful thing about this city is that the art and architecture is all around you at no cost. If you’re travelling on a budget, pick and choose your attractions and then go explore the rest on foot.

Many couples and families tend to include this location as a stop on their tour of Italy or Europe and have limited time. For this, we would have you consult Pinterest! There are so many resources online now for planning your itinerary for the perfect trip no matter how brief or extensive. A short holiday would be difficult here as there is so much to take in and see but there are ways to get a taste of the city by researching and pinning.

To get the ball rolling for your planning, here are some top spots to look up! Don’t forget to follow Pix Around on Pinterest to stay up to date with lots of travel tips and beautiful portraits from around the globe.
