Christmast in Florence light and emotions – PLAY LEFT TO SEE THE VIDEO
Visiting Florence at Christmas? While Florence is beautiful year-round, holiday decorations and Christmas cheer add a festive touch.
Florence’s acclaimed museums are usually less crowded during the holiday season, so you can experience the paintings and sculptures more intimately! Plus, the majority of museums, including the Uffizi and Accademia, are open on both December 24 and 26 to tourists.
On Christmas Day, though, most museums are shut. If you want to get an art fix on Christmas, head to Palazzo Strozzi for its modern and contemporary exhibits. Of course, Florence itself is an open-air museum, too: Christmas Day is the perfect time to explore Florence’s extraordinary architecture with a walk along the Ponte Vecchio, or take in a panoramic view of the city from Piazzale Michelangelo, in the Oltrarno district.
