Weekend in Florence: what to do and what to see

Florence is a wonderful city, waiting to be discovered, but also relatively small compared to other cities in Italy. Definitely perfect for spending a romantic weekend and also in the company of friends, especially if you want to admire the magic of Renaissance art and culture. And not only…

You cannot miss the magnificent Piazza Duomo with Brunelleschi’s Dome or the Uffizi Galleries. In short, the city offers many opportunities and places to admire during your weekend in Florence. So, what to do and what to see on the weekend?

A weekend in Florence between events and art exhibitions

Visiting all the cultural and architectural beauties of Florence in a single weekend is almost impossible. For this reason it is important to plan an itinerary with things to see and do in Florence, which will allow you to spend a weekend in complete tranquility.

Fortunately, most of the Florentine beauties are located in the historic center of the city: in addition to the Uffizi, the Accademia Gallery and the Duomo, you can admire the Pitti Palace, the frescoes of the San Marco Museum, the Baptistery and the Basilica of Santa Maria Novella.

Especially for those who are a great lover of art, you cannot miss the exhibition at Palazzo Strozzi “Let’s Get Digital!” on the NFT art revolution and the new realities of digital art, which will take place from 18 May to 31 July 2022. You can admire incredible digital installations and experience multimedia experiences created by international artists.

Florence, therefore, is art, culture but also romanticism.

If you decide to spend a romantic weekend in Florence with your sweetheart, it could be fascinating to walk hand in hand through the streets of the city. Admire the sunset along the Arno River and the Ponte Vecchio.

Or if you choose to stay in the Lungarno Collection 5-star hotels in the center of Florence, you can live incredible and fascinating experiences such as a ride aboard a Golf Cart to admire the charm of the city and the favorite places of our Lifestyle Manager.

Lungarno Collection offers you different solutions for your weekend in Florence: the 5-star hotels Portrait Firenze and Hotel Lungarno and the 4-star hotels Gallery Hotel Art and Hotel Continentale.

Where to eat in the center of Florence

In the historic center of the city you can find different restaurants for all palates: from fusion to starred restaurants. But why not prefer a restaurant in Florence with a view?

The Michelin-starred Borgo San Jacopo restaurant and the contemporary Caffè dell’Oro restaurant are considered among the best in Florence, for the quality and delicacy of the dishes. For cocktails and aperitifs in the company of a magnificent panoramic view of Ponte Vecchio, La Terrazza Rooftop Bar, Picteau Bistrot & Bar and The Fusion Bar & Restaurant stand out.
