Florence has some of the most iconic sights in Italy. Those looking to enjoy seeing everything will have a tough time--there's so much to see and do and you should be prepared to have missed something before you leave. Whether you plan on staying for a few weeks or days, you'll want to visit the best spots in the city and send a picture home to your family.
You can't miss the Ponte Vecchio in the city center. Not only is it the oldest bridge in Florence, but it is also its most famous. Jewelry shops line either side and it was formerly where the butchers sold their wares during Medieval times.
You'll also want to see Piazzale Michelangelo--the place where you can get the best view of the city. It's a bit of a climb and you might be out of breathe, but it's definitely worth it. Also make sure to check out the Palazzo Vecchio for a walk back through history.
