About Florence

Florence was an artistic and cultural center of the Renaissance. The historic center of Florence has numerous great buildings and has already been listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The Cattedrale di Santa Maria del Fiore (Florence Cathedral) is absolutely stunning to behold. The Ponte Vecchio has become a unique sight on the Arno River due to the many art, jewelry and souvenir shops lining the bridge. So many pieces of art have been collected by the major art galleries that it goes beyond measure. Go to the Uffizi to see astounding masterpieces by Leonardo da Vinci and Giotto di Bondone, and enjoy Michelangelo’s original "David" at the Galleria dell'Accademia. After worshiping at the altar of humanity's priceless art treasures, you should go looking for some delicious local specialties. Lampredotto sandwiches and Bistecca alla Fiorentina are definitely part of an essential gourmet experience in Florence.

Art Gallery

Uffizi Gallery, adjacent to the Municipal Square, is one of the best art galleries in Italy, and even Europe. The gallery was originally the official residence of the Medici family. The entire, giant, palace-sized building took over 20 years to complete. The gallery contains almost all of the Medici family's art collection. The Artwork nearly spans the entire history of art, from ancient Greek sculptures to 18th-century Venetian paintings. There are also many original master works, including Michelangelo's "Holy Family", Raphael's "23-year-old self-portrait", and Da Vinci's "Adoration of the Magi".

Florence
Basilica di Santa Maria del Fiore or The Cathedral of Florence is also known as il Duomo di Firenze, it is a 13th-century catholic church dedicated to Madonna, with the title 'Santa Maria Del Fiore'. The Florence Cathedral was constructed in 1296 on the ruins of an old church 'Santa Reparata', built between the 5th and 6th century. The old cathedral was too small for the city of Florence, thus, the need for a larger cathedral emerged and the Florence government became keen on making a new cathedral with an enormous Duomo. Boniface VIII’s legate and Cardinal Valeriano laid the first stone of the new church which was being enlarged and architected by the then famous architect Arnolfo De Cambio.
