Florence is undoubtedly one of the most touristy cities in Italy.

Indeed, there are several ways to avoid wasting time on your 5-day trip to Florence. Here they are:

One Last Tip for a Perfect 5-Day Stay in Florence

If you already know your travel dates (or as soon as you will have them!), you should really book your accommodation.

As a seasoned traveler, I can assure you that it’s always by planning as far in advance as possible that I’ve found the best hotels or apartments deals.

And if you like one of the hotels you find, book it!

I will be glad to help you plan your trip 😄.

So, what are the best places to visit in Florence in 5 days?

Day One – Discovering Florence’s Historic Center

itinéraire Florence jour 1
Visiting Florence in 5 days – Day 1

Visits for Day 1:

A. The Accademia Gallery
B. The Duomo’s Dome
C. The monuments on Piazza del Duomo
D. The Basilica di Santa Maria Novella
E. The Basilica di San Lorenzo / Medici Chapels

A. The Accademia Gallery

The Accademia Gallery is one of the most famous museums of Florence, making it the perfect place to start this 5-day Florence journey.

This is where you’ll find Michelangelo’s David, one of the most renowned sculptures in the entire world. This Italian Renaissance symbol, towering at over 5 meters tall, represents David before his battle with Goliath.

The gallery also houses other masterpieces worth seeing, mainly concentrated in the Hall of Prisoners and the Sala del Colosso.

Also worth seeing is the room dedicated to ancient musical instruments.

If you’re looking for an essential highlight during your 5 days in Florence, don’t miss out on the Accademia Gallery!

Voyage Tips - Advice

Right at opening, there are often queues longer than an hour to enter the gallery. To avoid wasting time, I suggest buying your skip-the-line ticket in advance by choosing one of the following options:

Click the orange links or green buttons for details and to book:

  • Guided tour of the Accademia Gallery in French. Great for learning more about “David” and the other works!

  • Buy the Florence Pass including 1 priority entry to the Accademia Gallery as well as to the Uffizi Gallery (visit for day 2) + access to the Duomo’s dome + A downloadable audio guide of Florence.

The Accademia Gallery, a must-see in 5 days in Florence!

B. Florence’s Duomo

Continue this first day of sightseeing by heading to the Piazza del Duomo, just a 5-minute walk from the gallery.

You’ll then come face-to-face with one of the largest cathedrals in the world (after St. Peter’s in Rome and St. Paul’s in London): the Duomo of Florence.

Start by admiring its white and green marble exterior architecture, before stepping inside to discover the famous dome, adorned with scenes of the Last Judgment.

At 115 meters high and with a diameter of 45 meters, Brunelleschi’s dome is impressively large.

And equally impressive is the view you’ll enjoy after you’ve climbed the dome to access the Cathedral’s roof, where you can admire the entire city of Florence.

To learn more about visiting the Duomo, feel free to read my other article right here: Visiting Florence’s Cathedral.

For me, it’s the not-to-be-missed site during your 5 days in Florence!

Note that you can enter the cathedral for free if you don’t want to climb the dome. But it’s really not worth waiting in line just for that, as there’s nothing much to see inside. It’s very austere and all the artworks/sculptures that were there have been moved to the Opera Museum.

Voyage Tips - Advice

If you want to discover the dome and the view from the roof, it’s essential to buy a ticket in advance since everything works on a timed-entry basis. Access is only via a narrow staircase, so the number of visitors is limited each hour.

Try to book your ticket at least 72 hours ahead to ensure availability on the day you want to visit.

I provide the different options (tickets/guided tours) here:

  • Take the Florence Pass which includes access to the dome + a priority entry to the Accademia Gallery as well as to the Uffizi Gallery + A downloadable audio guide of Florence.
  • Ticket for Brunelleschi’s dome + roof access (click the green button to book):

  • Guided tour in French of Florence’s dome:

  • Guided tour in French of the dome + Baptistery + Opera Museum + Ticket for the bell tower:

The Duomo – A must-visit in 5 days in Florence

C. The Monuments of the Piazza del Duomo

Surrounding the cathedral, also located on the Piazza del Duomo, are several other monuments to see.

Among the list, notably the cathedral’s bell tower (Giotto’s Campanile – which you can climb via a staircase of 414 steps) and the Baptistery of San Giovanni. It’s not essential to go inside these buildings; you can choose just to walk by.

However, you need to visit the Museo dell’Opera del Duomo (still on the same square).

Its very modern staging highlights the numerous statues and other works of art that are displayed here, which were previously found in the cathedral and on its facades.

The museum also features a terrace offering a stunning view of the exterior of the dome.

Voyage Tips - Advice

There’s one thing that I find quite disappointing: the almost complete lack of explanatory panels (or audio guides) in the monuments of the Piazza del Duomo.

That’s why, if you’re interested in history, I recommend booking a guided tour in French.

It includes the dome visit + access to the roof, a visit to the Baptistery and the Opera Museum, as well as a ticket to climb the bell tower (without a guide this time).

To book, it’s simple, just click on the button below:

museo dell' Opera del Duomo

D. The Basilica di Santa Maria Novella

After the Duomo, continue immersing yourself in the historic center by visiting the Basilica Santa Maria Novella.

The frescoes inside were created by the same artist as the dome of the cathedral, Brunelleschi.

You need to book your skip-the-line ticket for the basilica (which comes with a free audio guide in French) by clicking on the button below:

Basilica Santa Maria Novella

E. The Basilica di San Lorenzo and the Medici Chapels

For the next step of your 5-day trip to Florence, I suggest you visit another basilica, the Basilica di San Lorenzo.

It houses the famous Medici Chapels, where rest the tombs of the ancient wealthiest and most renowned family of Italy. Some parts, richly decorated, are the work of the famous Michelangelo.

Here too, don’t hesitate to book a skip-the-line ticket to avoid long queues.

It’s not more expensive and it’s just a click away, right here:

Voyage Tips - Advice

If you’re interested in the history of this family, rich with anecdotes, I recommend booking a special Medici guided tour.

Good news: it’s also available in French!

As usual, you can book by just clicking on the green button below:

basilica San Lorenzo Florence
Visit the Medici Chapels – 5 Days in Florence

F. The San Lorenzo Market

Next, make your way to the San Lorenzo Market, just a few meters from the basilica.

It’s indeed time to end this first day with a nice meal!

You can choose the dish you want to savor at one of the restaurants gathered in the food court area of the market. On the menu: Italian specialties of course, but also international cuisine.

I found the ambiance to be really pleasant with tables situated under a large glass roof, and the food is good.

The San Lorenzo Market is open for lunch and dinner, every day.

Voyage Tips - Advice

A little tip for choosing a restaurant in Florence (and in Italy in general): avoid those that offer menus translated into 10 languages and are located right next to the Piazza del Duomo, for instance.

They are sure to be tourist traps with high prices for pizza straight out of the freezer (we didn’t make this up; it’s been confirmed by several waiters)!

Day Two – Continuing the Tour of the Historic Center

Florence itinerary day 2
Visiting Florence in 5 Days – Day 2

Visits for Day 2:

A. The Uffizi Gallery
B. The Ponte Vecchio
C. The Piazza della Signoria / Palazzo Vecchio
D. The Bargello Museum Palace
E. The Basilica of Santa Croce

A. The Uffizi Gallery

Just like the previous day, I suggest you start your visits with a museum.

And not just any museum, as you’ll have the privilege of exploring a world-renowned museum: the Uffizi Gallery.

For art lovers, it’s paradise: dozens of sculptures and massive paintings created notably by Botticelli, Michelangelo or Leonardo da Vinci, that you can admire for hours.

And for those who aren’t typically fans of museums, I still highly recommend a visit. Everyone is sure to be impressed by the beautiful setting of the museum and its grandiose paintings.

Voyage Tips - Advice

The Uffizi Gallery, along with the Accademia Gallery and the Duomo, are the three must-visit attractions during your 5 days in Florence.

But, as with the other two, you definitely need to purchase a skip-the-line ticket for the Uffizi Gallery.

That’s why here I present the different options:

  • Small-group guided tour in French of the Uffizi Gallery:

  • Buy the Florence Pass with: priority entrance to Uffizi Gallery + Accademia Gallery (which you visited on day 1) + Access to the Duomo’s dome + A downloadable Florence audio guide.

Uffizi Gallery

B. The Ponte Vecchio

After leaving the museum, I suggest you go and admire another very famous spot in the city: the Ponte Vecchio. Just by following the river next to the Uffizi Gallery, you’ll find it only a few meters away.

To take photos and truly appreciate its unique architecture, head to Ponte Alle Grazie, Ponte Santa Trinita, or have a drink at the Lungarno Hotel bar.

There, you can admire the colorful little houses built on top of it. Back in the day, they were butcheries, but now, they have a completely different purpose as they house gold jewelry shops.

So now you know, on your 5-day visit to Florence, where to go if you want to bring back a beautiful souvenir!😆

Ponte Vecchio Florence

C. Piazza della Signoria / Palazzo Vecchio

Let’s continue exploring the historic center with Piazza della Signoria, which I consider one of the most beautiful squares of the city.

It is surrounded by impressive buildings and at its center stands a huge fountain of the God Neptune atop his chariot.

You should also visit the Palazzo Vecchio. The palace, which today houses the town hall’s offices, was once the Medici family residence. As such, you can still admire the original frescoes and some paintings, all in excellent condition.

The visit also includes ascending the Palazzo’s tower, allowing you to enjoy a beautiful panorama of Piazza della Signoria.

You need to purchase a skip-the-line ticket (with audio guide) by clicking the button below:

D. The Bargello Palace Museum

Just a few minutes’ walk from Palazzo Vecchio is another palace worth visiting: the Bargello Palace.

Sculpture enthusiasts will be thrilled to admire masterpieces by Donatello and Michelangelo.

As usual, if you want to avoid waiting, you should purchase your ticket for the Bargello Palace in advance using the button below:

And if you’re starting to feel museum-fatigued, you should still admire the palace’s exterior and wander around the area. The neighborhood is quite charming.

Bargello Museum

E. The Basilica of Santa Croce

Finish this second day of your 5-day itinerary in Florence with a visit to the Basilica of Santa Croce.

It’s in the world’s largest Franciscan church that many Italian artists (such as Machiavelli, Galileo, Dante…) are buried.

The basilica’s garden is also worth a look as it offers the chance to observe the different architectural styles of the monument.

Visits for day 3:

A. Pitti Palace
B. Boboli Gardens
C. Bardini Gardens
D. Michelangelo Square
E. Shopping in Florence

A. Pitti Palace

Your 5-day stay in Florence continues today on the other side of the Arno River.

From the historic center, you just need to cross the Ponte Vecchio and walk a few minutes to reach the first place to visit: Pitti Palace.

This palace was the residence of the Medici family after they left the Palazzo Vecchio, at the beginning of the 16th century.

The place is magnificent and includes several galleries where you can find jewels, clothing, and furniture that belonged to the Medici.

The royal apartments and the Palatine Gallery, consisting of no less than 20 rooms, also feature many masterpieces (Raphael, Botticelli, Caravaggio, to name a few).

To book a guided tour of the palatine gallery, click here.

Voyage Tips - Advice

Here are the 2 solutions to avoid queueing at Pitti Palace:

  • Prioritized entrance to Pitti Palace (includes access to the palatine gallery)

  • Combined ticket Pitti Palace + Boboli Gardens:

B. Boboli Gardens

The Pitti Palace also includes an immense Renaissance-style garden where you can stroll and get some fresh air after spending the beginning of the day indoors.

You can sit by a fountain or pond and enjoy a quiet moment.

Next to the Neptune fountain, you’ll also find the Porcelain Museum, whose entrance is included with the ticket to visit Boboli Gardens.

Note that the entrance ticket to Pitti Palace does not automatically include access to Boboli Gardens.

To visit both the palace and Boboli, here’s the combined ticket you need:

You can also choose to visit only the gardens (without Pitti Palace). In that case, this is the ticket you need:

Boboli Gardens
Boboli Gardens

C. Bardini Garden

The combined ticket for Pitti Palace + Boboli Gardens or the Boboli Gardens ticket also grants access to Bardini Garden.

Just a 5-minute walk from the Boboli Gardens, exit through the gate at the top of Boboli, towards the Forte Belvedere building.

Though it’s rather small, Bardini Garden is definitely worth a visit for the magnificent views it offers of the cathedral and the entire city of Florence.

D. Piazzale Michelangelo

To keep the momentum going and feast your eyes even more, you should then head to Florence’s most famous lookout: Piazzale Michelangelo.

A must-visit for a photo stop, here you can enjoy views of Palazzo Vecchio, the Duomo, and other landmarks of the city.

The more adventurous can continue their walk a bit further to the church of San Miniato al Monte, where you’ll find another picturesque viewpoint.

For trivia lovers, the cemetery of this church is the final resting place of the author of a book known to everyone: Pinocchio.

E. Shopping in Florence

Spend 5 days in Florence and not allotting at least a little time for shopping would be unthinkable!

Just like Milan or Rome, the city offers a wide selection of shops for window shopping.

Those with well-padded wallets should head to Vigna Nuova or Tornabuoni streets (close to Palazzo Vecchio/Piazza della Repubblica) to browse the luxury boutiques like Prada and Gucci.

Others will find happiness in more affordable brands such as Zara.

Day Four – Exploring the Surroundings of Florence

Let’s embark on the penultimate day of your 5-day trip to Florence.

After visiting most of the essential tourist sites, I suggest you leave the city to explore the surrounding area.

I’ve selected two very well-known and easily accessible towns perfect for a day trip close to Florence. You can choose your favorite:

  • Option 1: Pisa
  • Option 2: Siena
  • Option 3: Combined 1-Day Tour – The Highlights of Tuscany

Option 1: Pisa

The famous Leaning Tower of Pisa needs no introduction!

If you wish to spend a day in Pisa during your 5 days in Florence, you can simply take the train (only an hour’s journey!) or even more conveniently opt for an organized tour.

It’s really the best way if you don’t want the hassle of planning.

Everything is included, with no extra fees to expect:

  • Round-trip transportation
  • French-speaking guide for the day
  • Guided tour of Pisa
  • Climbing the tower + cathedral visit (tickets included!)

Option 2: Siena

Another option for the day is to head out to visit Siena, located about 1h30 by train from Florence.

While less known than Pisa, the city is just as beautiful. The Siena Cathedral, for instance, is one of the most beautiful I’ve visited.

Both economical and convenient, I suggest you get the Opa Si Pass for visiting the cathedral and the other buildings in Piazza del Duomo without waiting in line:

What if I told you that you don’t need to choose between Pisa and Siena and that you can visit both in the same day?

It includes:

  • Transportation

Fifth Day – Day Trip Around Florence

As I mentioned, spending 5 days in Florence allows for some time to explore the surroundings.

For this final day, I’ve got two great organized excursions for you to choose from: Cinque Terre or the Chianti vineyards.

Unlike the previous day’s visits to Pisa and Siena, which could be done independently, these two locations are nearly impossible to visit on your own, so it’s best to opt for a tour with included transport.

Option 1: Cinque Terre

Cinque Terre is among the most beautiful places to visit on a trip to Italy.

The five small seaside villages with their colorful house facades are very typical and, more importantly, very photogenic.

The tour I’ve selected is also very comprehensive. You’ll head to Cinque Terre by bus from Florence and then move by train between the villages (which is the most convenient way to see everything).

A guide will be with you throughout the day for village tours but you’ll also get some free time to wander around at leisure.

You’ll then enjoy a wonderful sea cruise, perfect for taking in the most beautiful panoramas.

This excursion is so good that it comes with the GetYourGuide Originals certification, which means it’s satisfaction guaranteed or your money back!

To visit Cinque Terre during these 5 days in Florence, all you need to do is click the button below:

Option 2: The Chianti Vineyards

The second option is perfect for lovers of fine wine and those looking to stay closer to Florence.

If you’re a bit tired of city and monument tours, I suggest exploring the Tuscan countryside and discovering the wine estates that produce Chianti, a highly renowned wine from the region.

Since you’ll definitely need a vehicle for this day, you should opt for a tour with bus transportation. The one I chose includes a visit to several wineries and of course, multiple wine tastings!

And that’s not all, this excursion is so great it’s certified as a GetYourGuide Original, meaning it comes with a satisfaction or money-back guarantee!
