Sure, Florence is touristy, but where else can you stroll the same pedestrian streets walked by Michelangelo, Leonardo, & Botticelli while savoring the world’s best gelato.
When we were in Florence they did not offer booking tickets in advance, so we planned to get there right at opening.
We got there around 20 minutes before opening and the line was already 2 blocks long!
As an art nerd, I have to say this was my favorite part of the whole day.
When I turned the corner and saw the David, it literally took my breath away!
If you can get here at opening, it is definitely worth it.
