Galleria degli Uffizi - Iconic places of Firenze

9:00 AM

It cost my flatmate and I three different attempts to enter the Galleria degli Uffizi. The main reason were the long lines and crowds of people we always encountered once passing through the Piazza della Signoria and Palazzo Vecchio to reach the Piazza degli Uffizi. Such a nightmare, and such a pity, because nothing's the same when you are trying to enjoy art and history in a crowded, tiny room inside the gallery, while other 3 billions of people are trying to do the same as you are, while taking pictures with thousand of arms up, children crying around and so. I feel like it's amazing and wonderful that we've arrived to such a point in history that culture can be enjoyed and noticed by so much people, and that museums have had such a leading role in democratizing art and architecture. But that comes with a price, of course (and, of course, this isn't just happening here in Firenze and super touristy cities. I don't even want to remember the last time I visited the Museo Reina Sofía in Madrid and entered the room with Picasso's Guernica).

But, anyway! I'm not here to complain and ruin your day nor mine. I'm here to brighten up your day by giving you ideas and insight on cool places to visit through this post, without leaving your desk! :) The Galleria degli Uffizi is for sure one of the most iconic places in Firenze next to the Duomo, and maybe the Ponte Vecchio or Santa Croce church. But there are many other places to see and live while here that might be a little less crowded, but not less beautiful and interesting! The other day I stumbled upon the National Museum of Bargello, which is a beautiful palace full of sculptures and sumptuary arts like pots, pans, ceramic plates, religious jewelry and many more. There is also the Biblioteca delle Oblate, which is a public library right behind the Cupola of the Duomo, where you can enjoy the views at its cafeteria while having a delicious cappuccino. I've already spent there some evenings working with the flatmates in our architecture projects.

And, if you like to stroll the city calmly and enjoy the italian lifestyle and its Dolce Vita, nothing better to sit for an aperitivo or apericena in one of the terraces near Santo Spirito (which is at the Oltrarno, the other part of the river. Much, much less crowded by difference. There's where the locals gather!) or near San Lorenzo Market around 6-7pm. I never expected so many things to see and do in a city which is the size of Valencia, or even smaller!

So, what do you usually look for when you travel to another place? Are you a museum-fan, or you prefer other activities to do during the day?
