How much time should I allow for each gallery

by dnat

Hi Im trying to purchase tickets online for Uffizi, Academia and Barghello galleries, was wondering how much time I should allow for each



Re: How much time should I allow for each gallery

by Beausoleil

At least a morning or an afternoon for each. If you enjoy stopping and looking at the art, you may want to plan more.

Re: How much time should I allow for each gallery

I felt rushed through the Uffizi. There are so many wonderful paintings and works of art that you need to slow down. Do a couple of sections in the morning, then take a break at the cafe, then take a few more hours to cruise through the rest. As to the Acadammia, the main draw is the David. There are works of art and a room of old musical instruments, but I would give it only an hour. Karl

visit Lucca. It's a lovely...

by anne_h

visit Lucca. It's a lovely walled town about an hour, or a half hour away from Pisa. Puccini was born there, or lived there--I can't remember. It's really a pretty town--pretty flat, so people ride bikes a lot, but surrounded by hills. The walls around the town have been made into walking and biking paths, a very romantic walk. There are also some great restaurants there--my favorites were Puccini, Il Buca di Sant'Antonio (both more expensive), and Da Giulio (inexpensive). Lucca is also famous for its olive oil, so be sure to buy some.

Antica Farmacia di San Marco

by leics

I almost walked past this place, even though it's on one of the main streets. Founded in 1483, this pharmacy has been going ever since. It wasn't open when I walked by (closed mid-afternoon, like many places) but I'll definitely be going in next time I visit Florence.

Hot brazilian nightclub

by Henrik_rrb about Maracana

This is according to me the hottest place in the whole Florence. At least on Sundays. Or, at least it was...

But lets take it from the beginning. Maracana is located in the central parts of Florence. A restaurant/nightclub that has its best evenings on Sundays. Open all week long, except Mondays, but during the week the atmosphere is worse, and it's more of a meat market for guys coming there only to pick up girls.
When I've been there with my friends we have always started with the meat buffé, which gives you some 1st plate, where you take what you want from the buffé. Then for the real meal the waiters comes out with huge sticks with meat on, which they then cut into pieces and place on your plate. One piece isn't the same as anyone else, so after a while you'll feel like you have eaten different meat from all over the world.

Take to this a nice red wine, and you'll be more than pleased!
At around 11pm they start a dance session, performed by a group of incredible talented dancers. Mostly they dance samba, and at the end of the show they pick up people from the tables too, who gets to join them.

Last time two of my friends were "picked", but managed to make the dance girl to believe that it was my brother's birthday, so she picked him instead.

He was... eh... not so pleased. :)

After midnight the show is over, and big parts of the restaurant turns into a nightclub instead, where a lot of people goes to without eathing the dinner first. The atmosphere on Sundays have always been great, and it's a relax feeling all over the place.

Unfortunately something seems to have changed the last six months. My friend in Florence has been there a couple of times, and he says that Sundays now are as bad as any other day. Guys (would write italian guys from outside Florence, but that wouldn't be too nice to them, would it? ;) ) comes there only to find something fun for the night...

It would be a shame if all this is true, as Maracana truly was one of the best nightclubs I've ever been too! You'll have to dress up a bit. Not smoking, but still a bit nicer than jeans and a white t-shirt.
For eating you must book a table in advance, and to get inside the nightclub without eating you should be there at midnight at least to avoid the long lines.

Also, have a look at the travelogue from this last magic night at Maracaná. :)

Light, fresh, inexpensive lunch

by debdono7 about I Fratellini

Eat and enjoy a glass of wine as as the locals do outside this tiny eatery on a hard to find little street. Customers are greeted in a friendly manner and served quickly. A sandwich and a cheap Chianti is just 4 euros. But, we asked for their best wine of the day - about 4 euros for Brunello. Stand or sit on a curb and watch the passersby. There are many sandwiches to choose from - ours were fesh and delicious. When you're finished, place your wine glass on the outside wallrack - what a unique and practical tradition.
