Florence is a city so famous for its beauty that it would need little introduction. The city holds numerous churches, basilicas and cathedrals filled with unparalleled works of art, such as the Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore, simply “the Duomo of Florence,” the Uffizi Gallery or the famous Baptistery. Its Duomo, with its white and green marble facade, leaves stunned entire crowds of visitors who pass through the city every year, while Brunelleschi’s Dome shows us, still after centuries, the power of human will.
Florence is very close to Arezzo, and as mentioned at the beginning of this page Antiche Mura turns out to be more practical and economical than staying in Florence itself to take in its sights.
Other things to see in Florence are the famous and inimitable Ponte Vecchio , Crypt of Santa Reparata, Museo dell’Opera del Duomo, Palazzo Vecchio with its “Vasari Corridor,” Boboli Gardens, Museo degli Argenti, Botticelli’s famous Venus, Caravaggio’s Shield with the Head of Medusa, and Leonardo Da Vinci’s splendid Annunciation.
