Galleria dell'Accademia di Firenze
Although this art museum contains many notable artworks from the
fifteenth and sixteenth centuries it is the presence of
Michelangelo's original marble statue of the biblical hero, David,
that truly justifies a visit.
Basilica di Santa Croce
The largest Franciscan church in the world, the beautiful
Basilica di Santa Croce was consecrated in the fifteenth century
and is notable both for its superb artworks and for housing
funerary monuments to Italian luminaries including Dante, Galileo,
Rossini, Michelangelo and Machiavelli.
This world-famous art museum contains many original Renaissance
masterpieces by artists including Botticelli, Giotto, Titian,
Caravaggio, Michelangelo, da Vinci and Raffaello,
Piazza del Duomo
The public square in front of Florence's spectacular cathedral
is surrounded by unforgettable architecture and is the perfect
place to relax with an Italian coffee and become immersed in the
beauty of the location as the bustling world passes by.
This thirteenth-century Romanesque building resembles a fortress
and although once a Ducal palace is now a museum. Extensively
restored the palace features elaborately detailed-painted ceilings,
many fine sculptures and a tower which may be climbed for further
superb views of the city.
