A night at the Museum

You can’t come to Florence and not visit its unique museums but walking around on these hot days – even if inside some museums you can count on the air conditioning – is not easy, laziness may show up.

A good option, therefore, would be to visit the museums at night, right? The good news is that in August several museums in Florence will be open in the evening, so you can enjoy the night breeze for sightseeing.

Here are your options:

Uffizi Gallery

Every Tuesday, until September 24, from 7 pm to 22 pm. (except for the 13th August).

Accademia Gallery

Every Tuesday and Thursday, until September 26, from 7 pm to 10 pm. SMART TIP:  The last Thursday of August and September you can enter for free until 10 pm.

Palazzo Vecchio

Every day (except Thursday), until September, until 11 pm. The Arnolfo Tower and the Ronda walkway instead close at 9 pm, right after the sunset.

Novecento Museum

Every Friday, until September, until 11 pm.


From Thursday to Saturday, until September 23, until 11 pm.
