Main city of the Italian region of Tuscany, Florence is known all over the world for its rich history: one of the main finance and trade centers during the Middle Ages, this marvelous city is considered as the cradle of Renaissance.

The most astonishing site in Florence is the Duomo: called Santa Maria del Fiore, it boasts the world-famous dome built by Filippo Brunelleschi, which is still the world’s largest dome in brick and mortar. Next to the cathedral, the Campanile di Giotto and the Baptistery make this area a breathtaking and unforgettable architectural heaven.

Florence’s historic centre was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1982.

Another highlight is the Palazzo Vecchio, with a copy of Michelangelo’s David at the entrance. Next to it, the Loggia dei Lanzi and the Uffizi Museum.

On the other side of the river Arno, don’t miss Palazzo Pitti and its gardens.

Walk across the city’s most famous bridge, Ponte Vecchio, to get to the other side of town while admiring tons of jewelry artisan shops.

Go to Piazzale Michelangelo before for the sunset to enjoy one of the best views of the city form a hill.
