Tuscany – Florence. Florence is universally recognized as a city of art, thanks to its incalculable works of art which transform the city’s streets and piazzas into a vibrant open-air museum. The heart of Florence is Piazza della Signoria with Palazzo Vecchio and the Uffizi Gallery. Nearby we find the Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore with the imposing Brunelleschi Dome next to the Giotto bell tower and the Baptistery of S. Giovanni, with its celebrated bronze doors.
The River Arno, which runs through the middle of the city, has played an important role in Florentine history. The most famous of the bridges crossing the river, the Ponte Vecchio, is adorned with jeweller’s shops housed in small cabins attached to the bridge. This famous bridge, which is also crossed by the renown Vasari art gallery, was the only one left untouched by the bombings during World War II.
The side of the city on the left bank of the river still offers an authentic historic atmosphere, with its typical shops with traditional crafts and antiques.
