We love the city of Florence. It’s one of the most enchanting, beautiful, and artfully rich cities in Italy and the perfect place to spend a couple of days before heading to the rolling hills of Tuscany.

We get a lot of people asking us about how to maximize their time in Florence, especially as they only have 2 days to spare.

I get it, with so many amazing cities and destinations in Italy to visit, sometimes our itineraries only allow a couple of days and it can be a hard task knowing how to fit all the top attractions and highlights in.

Don’t worry, you can see a lot of Florence on a 2 day trip, including some of the most iconic sites; The Statue of David, The Pitti Palace, and the Uffizi Gallery, to name a few.

If you’re not sure where to go and what to see in Florence over 48 hours, then don’t worry, as we’ve put together our best 2 day Florence itinerary so you can see the best of this amazing city.

Is 2 days enough for Florence?

Before I get into this 2 day itinerary, you might be wondering if two days are long enough to see Florence. Two days is the minimum amount of time you need in Florence to see the highlights, but ideally, the three days would be better.

The reason for this is that there are a lot of museums and art galleries in Florence that are worth seeing, and many of them take a few hours to get around.

The Uffizi Gallery, for example, is packed with some of the most renowned pieces of Renaissance paintings in the world. It’s a gallery you could spend a full day in, and not see it all.

In two days, you can still visit these museums and galleries, but your visit will be cut short. You could maximize your time by getting a guided tour or audio guide, but you still might feel that your visit is a bit rushed.
