Incredibile! I got that famous Stendahl´s syndroma of all that beauty.

Florence is so beautiful and full of history. There is easy to get the Stendahl´s syndroma. Ponte Vecchio, Duomo and everything.

The bridge felt very busy and touristy. I preferred the parts of Florence were you felt like a local and not a tourist trap.

Sadly, upon visiting Firenze for so many years, this visitor has seen better days. The influx of "stranieri" {non-locals} has set upon Firenze in a very bad way.

Started every day by crossing this bridge. Great views from the middle of the bridge. Early morning and night time are the best times to take photos.

Florence's centro storico is a superb collection of historic buildings, exquisite facades, old churches lining centuries old streets, nice and and good restaurants. The perfect place for the art and history lover to get lost in it, wandering aimlessly the streets while absorbing the beautiful character of that unequalled town.

A 'must see' attraction.This fascinating bridge was easily accessible from our motel so we did visit it on several occasions.It is also worth a visit at night time. The lights are so beautiful.

Walking in the centro storico, we found many jewellery shops, selling the most beautiful things. There are also a few less beautiful people trying to sell selfie sticks and other things in the street, and they don't seem to like taking no for an answer. So go prepared. When we went, we saw on the central monument- thousands of locks... More

Staying in Duomo

Neighborhood Profile
Duomo
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 as it was in ancient times, with maids walking in the main square and horses carrying coaches. Nowadays, roads are busy with street artists. Rustic Tuscan bakeries give way to fashion shops; just stop for a few minutes in the middle of Piazza della Repubblica to enjoy the colors and sweet melody of the carousel that will bring back great memories from anyone’s childhood.
