Let City Sightseeing Florence highlight all the things to do and see in the city
The Cathedral, or Duomo, is a principle attraction in Florence. Marvel at the gothic interior and the huge dome which dominates the skyline. The building was constructed over centuries and built on the original site of an earlier cathedral which dates back to the 5th century. Hop off at Piazzale Michelangelo for a breathtaking, panoramic view of the city. To admire Michelangelo’s famed Statue of David, visit the Accademia Gallery. Those who appreciate the arts will also enjoy a visit to The Uffizi Gallery or the churches of Santa Maria Novella and Santa Croce which are authentic art galleries. Hop off at the Arno River and cross the Ponte Vecchio which takes you from some of the oldest streets in the city to Oltrarno which is located south of the river. Take time out at the Boboli Gardens or climb the hill to the church of San Miniato al Monte to experience an enthralling view of Florence. Hop Off at the Piazza Della Liberta. From there you can take a short walk to San Marco, a religious complex comprising a church and a convent. The convent is now a museum and was once home to both painter Fra Angelico and preacher Giro Savonarola during the 15th century. The Fortezza is a masterpiece of military renaissance architecture and today is the main venue of the Florence Congress Congress & Exhibition Citidel.
