Piazza del Duomo:

You can't miss Florence's Piazza del Duomo, dominated by the majestic Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore, Giotto’s Bell Tower and the Baptistery of San Giovanni. Admire the beautiful marbles and architecture of these buildings. This is where Brunelleschi introduced mathematical rules into perspective, revolutionizing art.

Here was also held the famous competition for the realization of the golden tiles of the Baptistery, a fascinating episode of Italian artistic history.

Piazza della Repubblica:

A short walk in Via Roma will take you to Piazza della Repubblica, the heart of the city since Roman times. Admire the monumental arch with the Latin inscription celebrating the rebirth of the city. Here you will also find street performers entertaining passers-by and, if you like, you can take a ride on the famous carousel.

Piazza della Signoria:

In this immense square stands the Palazzo Vecchio, the ancient residence of Duke Cosimo I de' Medici. Stop here to admire the faithful reproduction of Michelangelo’s David and the majestic fountain of Neptune. A funny curiosity: Neptune’s face was modeled after the Duke himself.

Lungarno e Pontevecchio:

Finally, treat yourself to some magic and romance near the Lungarno and the famous Ponte Vecchio. This area is beautiful both in the morning and during the golden hour, when the sunset gives magical scenery. Walk along the river Arno, admire the colors of the shops and their jewels and enjoy the panorama of Florence under the arches of the bridge.
