"Like from fairy tale amazing..." Il Duomo - Santa Maria del Fiore Tip by vysnaite

Il Duomo - Santa Maria del Fiore, Florence: 251 reviews and 528 photos


Like from fairy tale amazing cathedral Il Duomo with a tower, curled in a style of renaissance and gothics Santa Maria del fiore. Palazzo Vecchio with tower and a square. Michelangelo statue Neptune ( http://www.arca.net/postcard/choose.asp?category=monuments ). Very beautiful city, actually after all that traveling in Italy it was a real refreshment for my mind, heart and soul.
Galleria degli uffici ? a wonderful gallery housing many famous paintings. Outside there?re sculptures of most famous people like writers, composers, scientists, painters, etc (Dante, Galileo, Makiavelli?). Many things, I won?t really fit them all there with all the history and beauty, it?s impossible to describe, you just have to go and see it.
Ponte Vecchio ? the Old Bridge, a great place for taking a walk, nice sights and many many jewelry shops on it, you should take a rich man with you ;)
