    During summer it's open till 11pm. You can access the lower level of the tower from 9 to 11 for €2 more. The awesome views of the Duomo are absolutely worth it!

    History about the city, it's rulers, and power. I recommend to book a tour and climb up the tower to get a nice view of Firenze!

    So historical, cultural and very impressive. Don't miss it. One of the most highly rated tourist attraction. So central and very close to many other interesting and important sites.

    Step inside this place of government! The frescoed courtyard's free; the museum upstairs is worth a visit (open late, too). Check out paintings by Vasari & the luscious Chapel of Eleonora by Bronzino.

    The Tower of Palazzo Vecchio, accompanied by its crenellated patrol path, is reigning over Florence with its 95 metres in height and it is one of the city’s unmistakable symbols and focal points. Read more

    Do the tower climb for a great view of the Duomo (without the crowds!). The guided tours - ours was in English - are really interesting and make the place come to life.

    A great option for a sight to see in the evening. It stays open later than most other sights and offers a chance to see a lot of Vasari's works.

    This massive, Romanesque, crenellated fortress-palace is among the most impressive town halls of Tuscany. In front of the copy of David statue and the gallery of statues in adjacent Loggia dei Lanzi.

    A really cool architectural Palazzo, which is still home of local politics. The "hall of five hundred" and the tower are the best parts!

    Go to the tower during sunset then wait 15 mins for this view - stunning. You can buy tower only tickets for EUR 10.

    The best time to visit is in the evening. There is no people and it's less hot+ night and live music on the square are making awesome atmosphere.

    Palace of the Medici family once, it is a city hall nowadays. You can enter for free to the courtyards.

    I recommend to visit it at the evening - there could be only a few people along with you, more time to spend, charming atmosphere, splendid views to evening Florence.

    Michelangelo lived here for 5 years, until Lorenzo The Magnificent’s death. Inside there's "The Genius of Victory”. Find Michelangelo in Florence:

    The museum is open until midnight and you can go in until 23h. Try to go late so you beat the huge lines during the day!

    One of the very few museums that opens until midnight in Florence. Climb up the tower for a fantastic view of the duomo.

    I was expecting this to be more impressive than it was. After seeing the best of Rome and Florence this didn't stand up. See it from the outside and maybe don't go in if you're pressed for time.

    Open late during summer (till 11pm), it's worth going then to avoid the crowds

    Also open late in the evening (up until midnight), which is rare in Florence. Worth checking out.
