My Florence, Italy Bucket List

florence bucket list.jpg

Since February, when we decided to move to Florence, time has sped by in a whirlwind of last trips, goodbyes, packing, unpacking, meetings, and settling in. And I haven't had the chance to sit down to actually look at things to do in our new home city. But I'm finally taking that time now -- and hopefully giving you plenty of ideas -- for things to do in Florence.

  • Visit the Uffizi Gallery
  • Enter Santa Maria del Fiore and see the view from the top
  • Bike to Cappelli Vini, which is a vineyard just outside of Florence in Candeli
  • Enter Santa Maria Novella
  • Stroll through the exhibits in the Palazzo Pitti
  • Visit the crypt at the Cappelle Medicee
  • Marvel at the courtyard at the Bargello
  • Picnic in the Iris Garden
  • Stop to smell the roses in the Rose Gardens
  • Find a cool antiques market
  • Wander the aisles at Bizzarri
  • Shop at Farmacia S.S. Annunziata
  • Find a bargain at Mercato delle Pulci
  • Learn to cook fried, stuffed zucchini flowers
  • Dine at Trattoria 4 Leoni
  • Enjoy aperitivo at numerous spots around the city
