Florence is the town which gave its own language to Italy and gave to Europe that unique great season of cultural, artistic and scientific development called Renaissance. Florence preserves some of the greatest works of art and most beautiful buildings in the world of the Renaissance period.

Florence is arguably the most famous Tuscan city in the world. Every year millions of people arrive in the "cradle of the Renaissance", visit the city's main museums, stroll through its streets admiring monuments, churches, buildings and landmarks. Florence has so much to offer and it is not easy to choose what to see but we point out some of the most beautiful areas of the city.

Florence's most popular site is its Duomo, the Cathedral de Santa Maria del Fiore. Its exterior, made of green, pink, and white marble, has several elaborate doors and interesting statues. Inside, Brunelleschi's Dome is a masterpiece of construction.

Piazza della Signoria is the most famous square of the city and the heart of the historic center. The Loggia della Signoria holds some important statues including a copy of Michelangelo's David. The piazza has been Florence's political center since the middle ages and Florence's town hall, the medieval Palazzo Vecchio, sits on the piazza. Around the piazza are a lot of cafes and restaurants.

The Ponte Vecchio, built in 1345, was Florence's first bridge across the Arno River and is the only surviving bridge from Florence's medieval days. The Ponte Vecchio is still lined with shops selling gold and silver jewelry. From the bridge, you'll have a great view and romantic sunsets along the Arno River and beyond.

Truly the most romantic sunset ever in Florence can be enjoyed from Ponte Santa Trinità, one bridge over from Ponte Vecchio. Not as crowded as the Old Bridge, Ponte Santa Trinita offers great views over the river and spectacular views of the Old Bridge itself making it a spot for gorgeous wedding pictures.

Crossing the Ponte Vecchio you come to the Boboli Gardens, a huge park on a hillside in the middle of Florence behind the Pitti Palace. Here you'll find beautiful gardens and fountains and a great view of Florence from the Forte Belvedere. The Pitti Palace, Florence's largest palazzo, was once the seat of the Medici family. While today houses eight different galleries feature art, costumes, jewelry, and the apartments. The Galleria degli Uffizi holds the world's most important collection of Renaissance art..

The Uffizi houses thousands of paintings from medieval to modern times and many antique sculptures, illuminations, and tapestries. Artists whose works you'll see include Michelangelo, Giotto, Botticelli, Leonardo da Vinci, Perugino, and Raphael. The Uffizi are usually crowded so we recommend you book your ticket in advance to avoid long queue at the entrance.

Piazzale Michelangelo is most spectacular square in Florence with a magnificent panoramic view of the city, and it’s located in the Oltrarno district of the city. The view from this observation point overlooking the city has been reproduced on countless postcards and snapshots over the years.

And Finally take the time to visit one of the Food markets in central Florence: There are two closed markets one is San Lorenzo’s, the largest and oldest and the other Sant’Ambrogio. Here you’ll get the chance to live the real florentine feel, you will see, touch and especially taste the freshest products of the region.
