Turn right upon exiting hotel and then take a left turn. Go straight ahead until you get to the Duomo. NB it is very difficult to miss the Duomo as it is located in the historical city center of Florence and by Florentine law no building is allowed to be taller than it.
The Uffizi gallery is located right next to the River Arno and the Ponte Vecchio. NB see our concierge staff to arrange tickets for the Uffizi to avoid the lengthy queues which tend to form particularly in the Spring/Summer months.
Enjoy the stunning views of panoramic Florence from Piazzale Michelangelo. Alternatively, enjoy an ice cream whilst strolling back and forth on the Ponte Vecchio, the oldest bridge in Florence. Both attractions are located in the city center approximately 400 m from the Hotel Rex.
