Even if you don’t go inside, we we could not as it was closed in the evening, diverting around the building off the track between Duomo an Palazzo Vecchio is worth the time. Descriptions of the statues along each face of the building are provided...More

This is my favorite Madonna bar none so far not because of her so much but rather because of her framing. It just works, the blue Madonna with such an over the top white girlie frame. What's not to like? Unless you're a minimalist which...More

The design of this church is different from everything else I had seen in Florence. It has a cubic design and from outside a large beautiful gate and 14 niches in the wall with sculptures are the main feature. The altar is rich details worth...More

Florentia, as it was called by Latins, is permeated by
an eternal beauty spread in all corners of the city.
The historic center is characterized by the immensity
of the Duomo, able to transport tourists into the
brightest age of Florence: the Renaissance. Who does
not know the Brunelleschi Dome, San Giovanni
Baptistery and the Giotto’s Campanile? Everything is
enclosed here and it would be easy to imagine the city
