FLORENCE PHOTOGUIDE
Florence will steal your heart with its breathtaking art

Planning a trip to Florence? Or just in the mood to daydream? We totally get how chaotic traveling can be and wanted to make exploring the city as easy as possible. Honestly, who has extra time to plan photo-opps anyway? Our Photoguide covers the best places to take pictures in Florence Italy- from the Duomo to the Ponte Vecchio, we promise you won’t miss a snap. We’ve also included some major photo-opps around Tuscany so you can still be snapping away on your day trips. Whether you’re a travel blogger or traveling gypsy, explore over 30 locations (and their coordinates) in our Photoguide to Florence Italy. Enjoy and have a gelato for us! 

PLEASE READ BEFORE USING OUR PHOTOGUIDE: 

We know this is common sense, but we have to say it anyway – please keep in mind that our Photoguides include some of the coolest photo-opps in a city, some of which may be at a hotel, business, restaurant or even near a private home. If that’s the case then you may need to book a hotel room, order something at a restaurant or even arrange a shoot in advance to be able to take photos in that location. If it’s near a private home please be respectful and treat the situation like you would want to be treated if your house was an Instagrammer’s dream.

We also sometimes include locations that are museums or art installations, which keep in mind can change at their discretion – but usually they’ll replace it with something along the same vibe so you’ll still get the shot. Like any good traveler, it’s always a good idea to double check if a location, monument, or museum is open before heading there. One time we traveled to Fez, Morocco to see the ancient leather tanneries only to find out it was closed…for the first time in close to 1000 years LOL! So trust us, if you don’t want to take the risk just double check before making the trek.  We hope you enjoy using our Photoguides and if you love them as much as we do, please leave a comment at the end to let us know! Safe travels xx

Sidewalker Sidenote: Florence is the best city to get lost in because all roads lead back to Florence’s main cathedral, Cattedrale di Santa Maria Del Fiore, or “The Duomo”. The Duomo is visible from almost all parts of the city so if you’re ever off the beaten path, just look up and you’ll spot the Duomo and find your way back to the city center. Just FYI, building the Duomo was no easy feat – it took over 200 years to complete. The Duomo is just one of the many architectural masterpieces you’ll find in Florence Italy!

Sidewalker Sidenote: When you’re visiting Florence Italy, make sure to visit the Fontana del Porcellino, a bronze fountain located in the heart of the city. Legends say that if you rub the boar’s snout you’ll guarantee yourself a return trip to Florence. Also, if you’re looking to up your luck, put a coin in the boar’s mouth for an instant boost.

Sidewalker Sidenote: The city of Florence is known for their amazing Bistecca alla Fiorentina and of course, gelato. Florentine locals seem to eat gelato at all hours of the day and even in the winter so don’t be shy to grab one whenever you feel like it (and even after your morning cappuccino)! One of the best gelaterias in the city is “La Carraia” located at Ponte alla Carraia (second bridge west of the Ponte Vecchio) on the other side of the river. The line can sometimes be out the door but definitely worth the wait!
