Florence
The beauty of a timeless city

The Tuscan capital is home to great artists and is rich in history and charm. Here are the places of interest in Florence and the wonders that will leave you speechless. Florence is the capital of Tuscany and the city has retained its charm and historic beauty. Famous for its artistic masterpieces, the colored marbles of its churches and its magnificent architecture, Florence was the city of the Medici family, an ancient Tuscan family that became one of the most important dynasties in Italy and Europe. It has many buildings, monuments and museums that are worth visiting: from Palazzo Vecchio to the Uffizi Gallery, passing through the Basilica of Santa Croce and the Ponte Vecchio. Florence is just that, and more. Then discover what to see in Florence, from the most famous to the least known.

Duomo

A large open-air museum that includes the Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore, Brunelleschi’s Dome, Giotto’s Bell Tower, the Baptistery of San Giovanni, the Crypt of Santa Reparata and the Museo dell'Opera del Duomo. Each of these monuments deserves to be treated individually. Over time, however, the idea of transforming the entire square into a single museum complex that can be visited with a single ticket prevailed. No wonder we put Piazza del Duomo in first place.

Ponte Vecchio

One of the most famous bridges in the world and certainly one of the most beautiful. Suffice it to say that he was the only one of the city to be spared by the German troops in retreat in 1944. After all, this is a bridge that has seen so many, having always had to deal with the "whims" of the Arno.

Pitti Palace and Boboli Gardens

The historic residence of the Grand Dukes of Tuscany and the largest monumental green area of the city. Inside the building several exhibitions: the Palatine Gallery and the Royal Apartments; the Gallery of Modern Art; the Silver Museum; the Porcelain Museum and the Costume Gallery. Finally, as we said, the Boboli Gardens that for the amount of landscape views and architectural details should be considered a real museum, to visit which takes no less than three hours.
