Piazza della Signoria

Here a photo is a must. Every person who visits the city has to be photographed with the copy of Michelangelo's David in front of the Palazzo Vecchio, one of the most emblematic buildings of the city with its characteristic tower.
A symbol of the city, it has been the heart of Florence from the Middle Ages to today, with very characteristic and original architectural elements such as the Loggia dei Lanzi, an open-air sculpture museum with authentic masterpieces such as the Perseus and the Rape of the Sabine Women marble group.

Galleria degli Uffizi

The most internationally renowned art museum, the Uffizi Gallery is one of the most important museums in the world. It houses some of the finest works of art by Leonardo da Vinci, Botticelli, Caravaggio, Raphael, Titian, Giotto, Paolo Uccello... as well as masterpieces of European painting, particularly German, Dutch and Flemish. No less important is the collection of ancient statuary and busts of the Medici family that embellishes the corridors of the Gallery and includes ancient Roman sculptures and some copies of Greek originals that have been lost. The Gallery occupies the entire first and second floor of a large building located a few steps from the Palazzo Vecchio

Galleria dell’Accademia (il Davide)

And then we come to him: Michelangelo's David. Surrounded by a large collection of other Renaissance masterpieces and other important collections of painting and sculpture. The museum also houses musical instruments that belonged to the Medici and Lorraine grand dukes, mostly from the collections of the Luigi Cherubini Conservatory in Florence. The Accademia Gallery in Florence is not to be missed during your visit to the city!

Ponte Vecchio

Also adding to Florence's eternal charm is the Arno River with the Ponte Vecchio crossing over it. Above the Ponte Vecchio you can see a part of the beautiful Vasari Corridor that passes just above the goldsmith shops that today occupy the sides of the bridge. Commissioned by the Medici, it allowed them to move in complete safety from Palazzo Vecchio to Palazzo Pitti without having to cross through the streets of Florence. As well as jewellers and other unique shops where you can buy classic souvenirs and handcrafted items, there are also luxury boutiques.

Palazzo Pitti

Palazzo Pitti is located at the foot of the Boboli hill, a short walk from the Ponte Vecchio. In the past it became the symbol of the Medici family's consolidated power over Tuscany. Palace of two later dynasties as well, the Habsburg-Lorraine (who succeeded the Medici after 1737) and the Savoy, who lived there as royals of Italy from 1865, Palazzo Pitti still bears the name of its first owner, the Florentine banker Luca Pitti.
It is currently home to four different museums: the Treasury of the Grand Dukes on the ground floor, the Palatine Gallery and the Imperial and Royal Apartments on the main floor (piano nobile) of the Palace, the Gallery of Modern Art and the Museum of Fashion and Costume on the second floor.

Santa Croce

Santa Croce is the burial place of Florence's great and powerful: Michelangelo, Rossini, Macchiavelli and the Pisan Galileo Galilei. The Church of Santa Croce in Florence hosts an immense artistic heritage with its frescoes by Gaddi in the Cappella Maggiore and those by Giotto in the lateral chapels. The Church's current exterior is a polychrome marble facade that was added in 1863. It overlooks Piazza Santa Croce, where one of the city's most popular folkloric events is held each year, the Calcio Storico Fiorentino (an ancient form of soccer).

Santa Maria Novella

Architecturally, it is one of the most important Gothic style churches in Tuscany with its splendid white and green marble facade. The interior hosts extraordinary masterpieces, including Masaccio's Trinity, Ghirlandaio's frescoes and Giotto's Crucifix.

Giardino di Boboli

Stretching behind Palazzo Pitti are the Boboli Gardens, a vast Italian-style park created by the Medici, an example for many European courts. The vast surface is divided into regular sections, and is a veritable open-air museum with ancient and Renaissance statues, caves and large fountains. The dynasties that followed added to the garden, expanding the borders that line the ancient city walls up to Porta Romana.
A visit to Boboli Gardens will let you fully grasp the spirit of court life and at the same time enjoy the experience of a garden that is always fresh and new while still respecting its tradition.
