Travel guide to Florence
Sunset in Firenze from Ponte Vecchio
Sunset in Firenze from Ponte Vecchio
No trip to Italy is complete without visiting the cradle of the Renaissance. The city of Dante and Botticelli is simply breathtakingly beautiful. Be prepared to have a love affair with this city as you walk around.

Stop at the Piazza Michelangelo for a superb view of Florence. Continue to the city centre to admire the richly-decorated pink, white and green marble façade Duomo with its orange-tiled dome, the lofty Gothic church of Santa Maria and the Doors of the Baptistry, a matchless work of bronze, which took 27 years to complete.

At the Piazza della Signoria, stands a copy of the famous Michelangelo’s David, a colossal nude statue, depicting triumph over tyranny together with the Rape of the Sabine Women. These Roman statues are works of art to be viewed with awe!

Take a stroll along the banks of the Arno towards the Ponte Vecchio which is the oldest surviving bridge in the city, having been built in 1345. This is where the young and old Florentines gather. [edit text]  [editors]
