Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore and Piazza Duomo
The city is home to many renaissance art and architecture. The buildings are beautifully designed and there are several museums where you can get an insight of the city’s history. One of the most Iconic sights is the Duomo. This is a cathedral with a terracotta-tiled dome. It was engineered by Brunelleschi. You will be smiling by the time you tour the bell tower, the baptistery, the cathedral and its museum. You will get a chance to interact with some of the best-known masterpieces of art and a collection of the oldest materials in Italy. You will also be mesmerized with the great architecture that was used to construct and put up these buildings.
Every tour bus stops at this terrace above the city. The best time to tour this place during the busy months of tourisms is between the late afternoon and early evening. It is only in this place that you can appreciate how Brunelleschi’s dome dominates the city center. The site will give you a clear view of the city that encompasses the Santa Crone, Porte Vecchio and palazzo Vecchio among many other landmarks. If you had enough time then spare the whole of your afternoon on a Friday when the crowd is less and walk here climbing from the Riverbank to all corners of the place.
Piazza dellaSingnoria and The Loggia deiLanzi
Visit here and get a view of the square which is the center of power in Florence since the 14th century. Today, this square is a social center where great meetings happen. It is beautifully designed with Neptune Fountain at its center and Palazzo Vecchio which still hosts the city’s government and the Loggia deiLanzi which forms one end of the Piazza.
