Far From The Maddening Crowd

 During our visit in Florence, Italy, there were huge crowds everywhere from the long line ups at the Accademia Gallery, the Duomo and to the Uffizi Gallery. My best advise is to purchase advance tickets to the Accademia and the Uffizi Gallery in order to avoid the long line ups. Fed up with the huge crowds, all taking photos of the majestic Duomo, we walked towards Via Tornabuoni to do some luxury goods shopping and sightseeing. Via Tornabuoni is the headquarters of major Italian luxury goods like Gucci and Ferragamo. The Palazzo Ferragamo is located here and if you have the time, visit their museum in the palazzo if you prefer not to shop. This area in Florence provided some relief from the huge, maddening crowds in the historical centre of Florence.
