AMAZING THINGS TO DO IN FLORENCE, ITALY (INSIDER’S TIPS)
Duomo/Baptistry/ Bell Tower
Commonly known as, “The Duomo”, Cattedrale de Santa Maria del Fiore is impossible to miss. It is the skyline of Florence.
Florence’s Galleria dell’ Academia, holds Michelangelo’s David, easily the most famous sculpture in the world.
Piazza della Signoria
I love watching as tourists stand in awe, clicking away at the breathtaking show of art filling the piazza! It was this square where the famous Bonfire of the Vanities was held.
La Basilica di Santa Croce
Florence keeps the empty tomb of Dante in hopes that one day it shall be filled with his decayed remains. They are currently housed in the city of Ravenna, his final resting place, after being exiled from Florence.
If you choose to walk to the Piazzale, make sure you wander through the Oltrarno, the neighborhood on the other side of the Arno river from the duomo, which is all too often overlooked.
The Ponte Vecchio
The castle-like building was built in 1255–1350 as the original seat of government. It contains the greatest collection of Renaissance sculpture in Florence and is one of the best collections in Italy.
