Most Instagram-able Spots in Florence

Our world revolves around Social Media nowadays and if you have read my post on Most Instagram-able Spots in Rome, you would know what I mean! While the whole of Italy is very Instagram-able, I think every city has certain spots where you can catch the best picture for the gram! The best Instagram Spots in Florence are a tad too many- whether from the rooftop of a famous hotel or from someone’s home or even a public library! But here are some of my Most Favorite Instagram spots in Florence only for you!


You know it already but isn’t anywhere at/around/near the gorgeous Duomo a.k.a Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore, the best?? I can’t get enough of it!! Any street especially close to it takes my breath away! It is undoubtedly one of the most popular Instagram spots of Florence.

A place off the beaten path but only a stone’s throw away from the Duomo is Biblioteca delle Oblate. This 13th century convent converted library is the perfect spot for some coffee+ reading + Duomo gramming! Enjoy the garden and climb to the top floor of the Oblate Caffeteria. You will be rewarded with a JAW DROPPING view of the Duomo!! Oblate is a neat find for all you book lovers because the English section has a great collection of books. There is even a Museum of Prehistory here!

No surprises on this one! If you Google Florence then Piazzale Michelangelo might be on the top result. When in Florence, take a map of the city and walk towards this picturesque point of the hill that overlooks the city of Florence.

I have no words to describe this view!

Piazzalle Michelangelo is spectacular any time of the day and is one of my favorite Instagram Spots in Florence. You can see the whole of central Florence from here and the Duomo shines through..As always!

Another place perfect for an Instagram Spot in Florence is the top floor of the department store of La Rinascente! You not only get a good peak into Piazza della Repubblica but also a priceless view of the Duomo! This is another to die for view that leaves you stunned yet wanting for more. La Rinascente is a department store that has a Bar on the top floor. You can sit down and relax with your book…or negroni or simply take a picture and come back quietly!

Ponte Vecchio is probably another of the most photographed and Instagram-able spot in Florence after the Duomo itself! If you visit in the early evening, the colors of the city come alive magically. Although it is usually run down by tourists, try going early morning at around 7 or late at night around 11 to have it all to yourself. That is the best way to up your Instagram game 😉

    1. Thanks so much! Honestly as I mentioned in my last post, I wasn’t as fond of Florence as maybe other cities like Rome or Turin (I hate comparing but it’s true). But this trip changed my mind. I love the city more now!

  1. Italy is the first country I visited. While I was looking for other countries after my first abroad experience, I was always like “Wait, so this year I can also visit Florence again but instead I’m planning to go to Marseilles?” I’m somehow addicted to the place! I’m still OK seeing the places I’d seen.
    And these pictures are definitely triggering it 🙂

    1. Same here:) first country for me too! I know what you mean. You always see something new of each place you have revisited. Thank you for reading
