Cultural life

Florence is one of the most beautiful cities in the world. Gardens, monuments, buildings, and streets are, in many cases, veritable masterpieces... Walking down the streets of Florence is like walking through the halls of a big open air museum...

But, even if the outdoors have so much to offer, don't forget that Florence is home to some of the most important 'indoor museums' in the world! The Uffizi museum, for example, is famous all around the globe (the 'Primavera del Botticelli' alone is worth a visit to the city), the Galleria dell'Accademia, has a wonderful gallery of statues (among them the Michelangelo's world-celebrated David!), and there are many, many more!


Florence cultural life, however, is not only "Past or Renaissance-oriented!" Artists from all corners of the planet choose Florence for their contemporary art exhibitions. In this section, you can find a complete list of the official places to see very interesting modern art.
