One Day Tour in Florence: What to See, Do, and Eat in Florence, Italy

If you have limited time in Florence, you should read our One Day Tour Itinerary below: what to see, what to do, and where to eat in Florence, Italy in one day.

Often tourists who visit Florence stay only for a few days. So, we understand it is crucial for them to choose an itinerary to maximize their time in the city.

Visiting Florence in one day can feel stressful, so FFT‘s advice is to book a professional and local guide to have an authentic Florentine experience. What’s better than walking through the historic Florentine streets and discovering Italian art, culture, food, and fashion?

One Day Itinerary in Florence, Italy: the Artisans of Oltrarno

If you are in Florence for only one day, you can’t miss the Tour of the Oltrarno district, the ancient area stretching from Santo Spirito to San Frediano, where Florentine artisans work and have their workshops.

One of the things our clients love the most during the artisan tour is to have a nice walk around the area and see the peculiar creations of the best Italian makers.

Although less known, Oltrarno is the place to be, even if you happen to be in Florence for one day only.

At FFT, we are always happy to take our clients to the Brancacci Chapel, in Piazza del Carmine, located inside the Church of the Carmine, which hosts famous Masaccio’s frescoes. And stop by Borgo San Frediano 70, to visit Romanelli Gallery, still owned by the Romanelli’s, an ancient Florentine family of sculptors and artists. A hidden treasure and little known even by Florentines.

Where to Eat with Only One Day in Florence. Florence’s Best Restaurants and Cafes.

When in Florence for just 24 hours, we recommend to include in the itinerary a trendy and local spot, like Caffè Notte. This bistro is right in the heart of the Oltrarno, on the border between Santo Spirito and San Frediano. Our customers like to learn about Italian culinary traditions here, enjoying lunch or aperitivo as the locals do. The menu changes daily and is focused on traditional dishes. The roast meat with potatoes is delicious!
