Florence In A Day, Look for Street Art

If you are doing Florence in a day and are looking for something unique to do?

Get off the beaten track and searching for street art. If you are doing Florence in A day it’s a must!

There are so many beautiful things to do in Florence whether you are visiting for a few days or doing Florence in day as a cruise day trip from Livorno port.

You can take part in many guided tours in Florence. I recently did a tour with LivItialy tours, which was incredible. Giving us the chance to see the best museums and attractions Florence has to offer. Because it is really is possible to do Florence In A Day.

However if you are looking for free things to do in Florence in a day?

And you are a street art lover, then a self guided tour of the streets of Florence is a great way to spend a day.  Although street art is not legal it is a must see Florence tourist attraction. With such diversity in quality and subject, for example you will come across the odd no entry sign that has been enhanced with art. Also flamboyant pieces that must have taken so long to produce.

My advice is as you are wandering between the museums in Florence or sampling Italian street food, Step off the beaten track and explore the side streets. But keep your eyes open at the art is everywhere. If you are doing Florence with kids an art treasure hunt is a great way to keep kids entertained and engaged.

Where do I find Street Art In Florence?

I found the more interesting pieces to be off the main squares away from the crowds but all very central. If you start at Piazza della Signoria and work your way along the back streets in the general direction of Ponte Vecchio Bridge you can-not fail to stumble across many incredible pieces of graffiti art, and signs transformed with graffiti spray.

I used to live in Rome up to a week ago, and just moved back to London. I visited Florence while I was in Italy, and boy, did I love the city! I don't think I have ever felt more comfortable in a city that wasn't mine than when I was there. The street art, the food, everything was great. I wish I could have gone to Cinque Terre while I was there!

Florence is the most beautiful city, and yes Cinque Terre is meant to be beautiful

That ear!! You're right, I always find that street art grabs our kids' attention when we're exploring a place. It helps keep them interested, which isn't always easy when you're on a city break! Lovely post - there are some really amazing artworks here. #citytripping
