Piazza del Duomo
The remarkable Duomo dominates the city’s skyline.
Piazza della Signoria
The beautiful piazza contains the Uffizi Gallery famous for its masterpieces by artists such as Giotto, Botticelli, Da Vinci, Michelangelo, Raffaello, Tiziano, Caravaggio, just to name a few.
The Basilica where Galileo, Dante, and Michelangelo among others are buried.
Piazza San Lorenzo
Displays a beautiful basilica, atmospheric palazzos, with interior courtyards glimpsed through ancient wooden gates, and the especially bustling central market – the place to find bargain in the leather goods.
The Palace is one of the most visited sites on the southern bank of Arno. The famous Boboli Gardens are located behind the Palace.
The world-famous “old” bridge across Arno (it was constructed during the Roman times) is now home to the countless jewelry stores.
A small museum contains the original statue “David” by Michelangelo. Note that you can no longer take photos of Michelangelo’s famed statue of “David” for security reasons, but you can purchase postcards and the book on the Accademia in the souvenir shop.
