Florence is a charming city of incomparable pleasure concerning churches, monasteries, museums, galleries and palaces.
Florence was very much the epicentre of the Italian Renaissance and remains one of the world's top attractions for lovers of art as such, it is one of the most beautiful cities in the world.
Located in the heart of Tuscany, a stunning province of hills and mountains, the Renaissance capital of the world, with famous sons like Leonardo, Dante, Machiavelli and Michelangelo, is a sight not to be missed.
The world-famous Duomo with the Brunelleschi cupola and the marble clad baptistry are simply stupendous, but not all the monuments are like this.

Florence is an exhibition of art and culture.
It is famous worldwide, the heart of the Renaissance period and the home of the fine arts and literature. Florence has powerful symbols of Italian and European culture in every nook and cranny, to the extent that it is hard to identify this city with just one symbol. It may be the sculpture of David by Michelangelo, or perhaps the romantic Ponte Vecchio, or Giotto’s bell tower, but Florence could also be represented by famous people such as Leonardo Da Vinci, Michelangelo or Dante Alighieri, to name but a few.  

The streets of the historic town centre in Florence are often narrow and dark, the palaces robust and intimidating. But have a look at the squares - wonderful Mediterranean places where you will like spending hours sitting down, having a coffee and just watching people passing by. Among the things you can't afford to miss are the Uffizi Galleries, one of the best art museums in the world, the Duomo, the Santo Spirito church and the Ponte Vecchio.

To get a great overview of the city, you have plenty of choices: climb the "Cupolone" of the Duomo or the Giotto Tower, head for Piazzale Michelangelo in Oltrarno (other side of river Arno) or farther up to the church of San Miniato.

Florence attracts a high proportion of international travelers to Italy.
The city is an active centre of art and culture, and organizes periodical exhibitions and art festivals.

Florence is called the capital of arts. From the 13th to the 16th century it was a seemingly endless source of creative masterpieces and Italian genius.
Top Attractions In Florence Italy One of the most artistically beautiful cities in the world, Florence, Italy is the ideal vacation for anyone who appreciates art, architecture and culture. Even now, centuries past the Italian Renaissance, it's the Tuscany region of Italy, and Florence in general, where art is the quintessential attraction.
For that reason, many of the top 10 attractions in Florence, Italy are based in the sometimes epic, sometimes subtle, but always visually stunning and impressive artworks of Italy's finest artists.

Florence's Top 10 Must-See Attractions

1.) The Galleria degli Uffizi The Uffizi is tremendously popular and rightly so. As one of the most impressive collections of fine Renaissance art in the world, the Uffizi is one of the busiest attractions in Florence, Italy. In the Uffizi Gallery, visitors can see first-hand the mastery of Botticelli, da Vinci, Michelangelo, Raphael and many other Italian masters.

2.) The Basilica di Santa Maria del Fiore The Duomo's (church's) dome was designed by Brunelleschi and is one of the most visited pieces of Italian architecture. Brunelleschi was awarded the job of designing the dome after a competition held in 1419 by the Arte della Lana.
With the help of Donatello, Brunellschi was awarded the task. It also features the stunning Giotto's Tower.

3.) The National Museum of the Bargello The Bargello is located near the Piazza della Signoria and houses some of the most incredible sculptures from the leading artists of the Renaissance era. Such noted works from Michelangelo, Donatello, Ammannati, Bandinelli and others grace the interior of this great museum.

4.) The Accademia Home to Michelangelo's David, the Accademia is a popular tourist spot and can get quite busy. Leave your camera at the hotel, because no pictures are allowed inside. Call ahead for a reservation and save yourself an hour wait in line for one of the most amazing Italy tours.

5.) Pitti Palace On the southern bank of the Arno, Pitti Palace houses the art collection of the former Medici family. Also, the included Boboli Gardens make an idealistic and beautiful walk behind the palazzo.

6.) Ponte Vecchio The only bridge to survive World War II and the oldest bridge in Florence, the Ponte Vecchio is a sightseer’s and shopper's delight as there is a number of fine jewelry stores located nearby the "old bridge."

7.) Santa Croce Come and pay homage at the monumental tombs of some of the most noted and respected artists of Italy including Galileo, Michelangelo, Machiavelli and Dante.

8.) San Lorenzo No less than nine Michelangelo sculptures can be seen in the sacristy of this agrarian church. With a facade that was never fully completed, the church has a deceiving quality if viewed from the outside. But once inside, enjoy the Renaissance in all its glory.

9.) Santa Maria del Carmine The Santa Maria del Carmine is most famous for its collection of inspired frescoes by such artists as Masaccio and Masolino da Panicale. It's also home to the Brancacci Chapel and the Corsini Chapel.

10.) Ponte Santa Trinita This bridge, near the church Santa Trinita, is the oldest elliptic arch bridge in the world and was designed and constructed by famed Florentine, Bartolomeo Ammanati. The original bridge was destroyed by German troops in August of 1944, but was later rebuilt in 1958 with most of the stones coming from the original construction.

The Galleria degli Uffizi is one of the oldest and most famous art museums of the western world.
The Renaissance masterpieces that you will find are quite unique and one of a kind (we are talking about paintings by famous artists such as Michelangelo and Leonardo da Vinci, for example).
Piazza della Signoria and Loggia de' Lanzi
This beautiful piazza is just in front of the Palazzo Vecchio and it hosts many astonishing statues, such as a David replica and the Fountain of Neptune.
The Loggia dei Lanzi (an amazing outdoor sculpture gallery) cherishes the statue of Perseus with the head of Medusa by "Benvenuto Cellini", the Rape of the Sabine women by Giambologna and many others.
San Lorenzo Market
Take the time to visit one of the closed food markets in the center of Florence. San Lorenzo Market is the largest and oldest one, here you’ll get the chance to live the real florentine feel… you will smell, see and touch the freshest products and above all you will get to taste whatever catches your attention!
Basilica of Santa Maria del Fiore and Brunelleschi's Cupola
Climbing the Duomo, with the huge cupola by Filippo Brunelleschi, is one of the most breathtaking experiences you can have in the center of Florence. From there you can dominate the whole city and have a unique view.
Ponte Vecchio is one of Florence’s landmarks and certainly the most photographed bridge in the city. The most famous bridge of them all was built at the narrowest point of the Arno and is the only remaining one with houses and shops on it.
Piazzale Michelangelo with its magnificent panoramic view of the city, is located in the Oltrarno district and probably is the most famous square in Florence. The view from this observation point is justly famous and has been reproduced on countless postcards and snapshots over the years.

The Medici Chapels are two beautiful chapels in the historic Basilica of San Lorenzo, which set the stage for the Renaissance.
Craft Cocktail and Aperitivo Tour of Florence kicks off at a given meeting point in Piazza della Repubblica or via dei Tornabuoni.
Museo dell'Opera del Duomo is a gorgeous and large new museum dedicated to the Dome and Basilica, as well as restoration projects.
One of Florence’s best kept secrets, Palazzo Strozzi is a beautiful, freestanding Renaissance palazzo with an ambitious contemporary art program. Whether its Carsten Holler’s latest experimental piece or an Marina Abramovic retrospective, Palazzo Strozzi constantly amazes through innovative, often interactive, exhibitions.

Cosa vedere a firenze ? Quali sono i musei palazzi e luoghi di interesse da visitare?
Firenze con i suoi musei, palazzi e chiese ospita alcuni dei più importanti tesori artistici del mondo.
Tra i luoghi d' arte e di culto più conosciuti della città vi sono senz' altro la Cattedrale di Santa Maria del Fiore, il Battistero, la Galleria degli Uffizi, il Bargello e la Galleria dell' Accademia.
Le chiese di Santa Maria Novella e Santa Croce poi sono delle vere e proprie gallerie d' arte, così come la Biblioteca Medicea Laurenziana è un' eccezionale espressione del genio architettonico di Michelangelo. Vi consigliamo di riservare un po' di tempo per visitare anche le importanti e svariate collezioni conservate a Palazzo Pitti.

Passeggiando tra i suoi vicoli non possiamo che rimanere folgorati dalla sua bellezza, un mix ben riuscito di arte, cultura e mondanità. Firenze è una delle mete nostrane maggiormente presa di mira da turisti italiani e stranieri che, immancabile fotocamera alla mano, ne immortalano le sue mille attrazioni, come a voler fermare ogni istante di un soggiorno che potrebbe diventare indimenticabile.
E' considerato a pieno titolo uno dei ponti più belli al Mondo. Stiamo parlando del famosissimo Ponte Vecchio, suggestivo passaggio che affaccia sul fiume Arno e funge da collegamento tra il centro storico fiorentino e il "Diladdarno", ovvero la zona est della città, così come la chiamano gli autoctoni.
Talmente "monumentale" da non poter essere immortalato in una sola foto. Tanto imponente all'esterno quanto elegante e raffinato nelle sue immense sale, il Palazzo Vecchio è un esempio evidente di architettura civile trecentesca.
Galleria degli Uffizi, all'interno della quale sono conservati capolavori di Cimabue, Giotto, Botticelli, Caravaggio, Tiziano, Michelangelo e Leonardo da Vinci. Un vero e proprio viaggio nel tempo attraverso le opere pittoriche e scultoree di alcuni fra gli artisti e gli studiosi più importanti del nostro Paese
La variegata collezione artistica dei Medici a disposizione di tutto il Mondo.
Giardino di Boboli e Palazzo Pitti - Due attrazioni collegate tra loro, da visionare con estrema attenzione.
Il vasto e suggestivo giardino di Boboli, con i suoi fiori, le sue piante, le sue statue e le sue fontane, fanno da cornice all'elegante Palazzo Pitti.
Nota con il nome di Cattedrale di Santa Maria del Fiore, per i Fiorentini è semplicemente il Duomo. E' la quarta chiesa europea per grandezza, con le sue tre navate, le facciate esterne in marmo bianco e verde e i suoi interni spogli di arredi ma dominati da un ciclo di affreschi monumentali realizzati, tra il 1572 e il 1579 dagli artisti Giorgio Vasari e Federico Zuccari.
Uno dei punti forti di questo enorme complesso è costituito dalla cupola del Brunelleschi: un'attrazione nell'attrazione, con la sua copertura in muratura, suddivisa in otto spicchi, la palla dorata che sorregge la croce in cima e la Lanterna, posta alla sommità, completata postuma alla morte del grande artista.

Basilica di Santa Croce, costruzione religiosa, oltre a raccogliere le spoglie di italiani illustri (Michelangelo, Galilei, Foscolo, Canova, Alfieri solo per citarne alcuni) custodisce le preziose cappelle affrescate da Giotto e un “pezzo” di storia relativo alla congiura in cui venne assassinato Giuliano de Medici.
Da dove guardare Firenze nel suo insieme?
Sicuramente da Piazzale Michelangelo, sulla collina dopo l’Oltrarno.
Da lì, al tramonto potrete godere una vista dal Forte Belvedere a Santa Croce, su ponti, tetti e musei della città che avrete percorso in lungo e in largo a piedi durante la giornata.
La piazza fu disegnata da Giuseppe Poggi e ospita diverse copie, in bronzo, delle opere di Michelangelo.
