Three Days in Florence by Chrissie ManbyWhen a mini-break becomes make or break...
Kathy Courage has never visited the famous Italian city of Florence before, so shes thrilled when she and her boyfriend Neil are invited there for a wedding. Unfortunately, with Neils constant complaining and his teenage children in tow, its not exactly the romantic break Kathy was hoping for.
But when a mix-up with her flights leaves Kathy stranded in the city, she decides to embrace the unexpected and stay on alone.
What follows is a life-changing few days in the Tuscan sun, as Kathy begins to question the choices that have led her here. With the help of the colourful Innocenti family, who offer Kathy a place to stay, she gradually begins to realise that theres a much bigger world out there, if only she can be brave enough to explore it.
Could Italy hold the answers to her future happiness? Or is Kathy destined to return to her old life?
Florence in a Day: Hidden Gems & Top Attractions
Florence - How long is too long?
It turns out this was somewhat of an oversight, because, well, Florence is unbelievably pretty. Those plans can also include Rome and Venice of course, for a trifecta of Italian goodness, but yes, Florence. Put it on the list. We recently spent just shy of a week in Florence. We based ourselves in a central Airbnb and explored a lot.
My recommendation for all first-time visitors to Florence is to head straight to the main cathedral Santa Maria del Fiore , which is undoubtedly the most iconic sight in the city.

Day 2 - Accademia, San Marco and San Lorenzo
I was intending to spend 6 nights, 5 full days, in Florence. Is this maybe too long?? We want to be sure we do the city justice, but don't want to be dragging our heels.
We'll be traveling to Italy late October. The last night has to be in Milan since we fly out from there. I think most people here will tell you that 4 towns in 14 days is too many. You lose at least half day or more moving from one to the other. I would leave out CT first or if that is a must, maybe save Rome or Venice for another trip.
