Piazza del Duomo
Florence is well know for its Piazza del Duomo. The renowned buildings that are there, such as the Cathedral of Florence, the Bell Tower of Giotto and the Baptistery of San Giovanni, are the main tourist attractions of the capital of Tuscany.
According to some documents, this is the house where the Alighieri family lived. At the beginning of the 20th century, the architect Giuseppe Castellucci was in charge of the construction of a house that could house a museum dedicated to Dante Alighieri, undoubtedly the most important Italian poet, considered the father of the Italian language.
An old barn converted into a church, Orsanmichele was built on the land where the garden of the former San Michele monastery was located and now houses a beautiful collection of statues inside.
Mercato Nuovo and Porcellino
The Porcellino Lodge was built in the 16th century and was used and continues to be used as a market where it is possible to find handicrafts such as bags, belts and leather accessories, silk objects, hats and much more. The Porcellino Lodge takes its name from a bronze boar with a fountain.
Piazza della Signoria
This square has been the same for centuries with its medieval houses and its old stone pavement. The majestic Uffizi Gallery is located right next door and adds an air of elegance to the surroundings.
The Uffizi Gallery contains one of the oldest and most famous art collections in the world. Built in 1560 by Giorgio Vasari, following the orders of Cosimo I de Medici, it had the initial purpose of housing the offices of the Florentine magistrates, as Palazzo Vecchio was too small.
Definitely the most photographed site in Florence, Ponte Vecchio is full of jewelry shops and was also the set of many movies. Listen to the story of how he survived the Germans and the Flood of Florence in 1966.
Palazzo Pitti is a Renaissance palace that was originally the urban residence of Luca Pitti, a Florentine banker. In 1549 it was bought by Leonor de Toledo, the duchess wife of Cosimo I de Médici, thus becoming the official residence of the great dukes of Tuscany.
In the 19th century, the palace was used as a military base by Napoleon I and then served for a short period as the official residence of the Italian Royal family. The tour ends here.
