The beauty of Florence lies within its rich culture and history of the Renaissance. Whether it is the statues, galleries, or magnificent views we have you covered and will make sure you know what to see and how to see it before you leave. Do not miss out on the beauty because of lines or laziness.
** Many things are closed on Monday's including almost all of the museums and galleries.**
- The pride and joy of Florence Beauty in my opinion. First buy a bottle of wine (there is no open container law) then take a taxi or walk up to the top to see one of the most spectacular views of the city for sunset. Once the sun goes down you can watch the all the city lights come on. Live music is played in front every night. Show up early to secure a spot on the steps or the wall.
- Address: Piazzale Michelangelo, 50125 Firenze, Italy
- The main church of Florence located in the center. To this day they still do not fully understand how the architect constructed the second largest dome in Italy, only to the Vatican, so long ago. The exterior of the basilica is faced with polychrome marble panels in various shades of green and pink bordered by white making it a beautiful representation of the Italian flag. Most churches are free in Italy but the line becomes very long throughout the day.
Statue of David
-Located in the Academia, the true greatness of Michelangelo can be appreciated. Take all of the photo’s you want in front of the fake David in Palazzo Vecchio but find the Academia for true beauty.
