What to See, Do, and Eat in Florence in One Day

Often tourists who visit Florence stay only for a few days. Even more often, they are in Florence only for one day. So 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: the Artisans of Oltrarno

If you are in the city for just one day, you can’t miss 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.

Visiting Florence in 24 Hours: What to See 

Although less known, Oltrarno is the place for artistic and cultural masterpieces.

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, 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

Lastly, we recommend stopping by a trendy and local spot, 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!
