Discover the Treasures of FlorenceDiscover Florence! Where to start? By art certainly, art that gave it its world reputation.
Thanks to the Medici, the greatest artists gave his nobility to the city par excellence of the Italian Renaissance, the city of Michelangelo, Botticelli, Leonardo da Vinci and Donatello.
Being able to admire their masterpieces “in real” will leave you one of your most beautiful memories.
You have seen them all in books or on television, but being in front of Botticelli's “Spring” or his “Birth of Venus” or in front of Leonardo da Vinci's “Adoration of the Magi” is a unique experience, one can only be moved by so much beauty.
In order of importance, when it comes to art, what you must see in Florence are the following museums and palaces:
The Uffizi Gallery
The Palazzo Vecchio
The Bargello Palace
Chapel of Princes Medici
The Museum of the Duomo
The churches of Florence are equal to museums, not to mention the “Cenacoli”, the cloisters in which the greatest Florentine painters painted the “Last Supper”.
The Basilica of Santa Maria del Fiore, the Duomo, and the Baptistery of Saint John
Basilica of Santa Croce
The Basilica of Santa Maria Novella
The Church of San Lorenzo
The cloister of San Marco and the cell of Savonarola
The Badia Fiorentina
Santa Trinita Church
The Church of Santa Maria del Carmine and the frescoes of Masaccio
The Church of Santo Spirito and Christ of Michelangelo
And if you prefer to stay outdoors, take a stroll around the Duomo and especially the Piazza della Signoria and its Loggia.
From here, in a few minutes you will be at Ponte Vecchio.
Go through it quietly, imagine the Florentines, the Medici who used it like you a few centuries ago, and five minutes later you will be at Palazzo Pitti which gives access to the large Boboli Garden and has its unique view of Florence.
For the rest, get lost in the medieval streets of Florence, take advantage of its many shops to give you a gift and... indulge yourself in one of Florence's many fine restaurants.
