"A piazzale with a view... and much more" Florence by OrlandoBR

Florence Travel Guide: 5,035 reviews and 11,002 photos

Prepare yourself for the rip off, this is one of the most expensive touristy cities in the world! I just can't avoid the cliché, it was the "cradle of the Renaissance", yes, and we must succumb to the exploitation and spend here as much time as possible. See those museums (the best in the world?) with Italian paintings, have some authentic gelato, spend lots of €€€'s at the jewellers on Ponte Vecchio, and forget the money, this is Firenze and that's what matters.

The enormous dome of Firenze is a symbol of the city, a symbol of Italy and a symbol of the Renaissance period... here`s a different angle of it.

...but a great city is made of more than one symbol: here`s an upclose look at our Ponte Vecchio!!

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Too many, I don`t know where to start

    On all my trips to Florence, I never found the Dante museum. I'll just have to go back again. I don't think I could ever get tired of Firenze.
