The Basics

The Stibbert Museum (Museo Stibbert) is a must for those who want to get away from the crowds and discover the Renaissance capital’s hidden treasures. Book your skip-the-line ticket in advance, and stroll through the collector’s former home, including nearly 60 sumptuous rooms overflowing with showpieces from the 16th through 19th centuries.

Pair a visit to the museum with a walking tour of Florence to take in the city’s more famous landmarks, such as the Duomo, Uffizi Gallery, and Accademia.
