The area
Neighborhood: 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.

Via del Proconsolo is a fairly typical street in the city centre. it connects Piazza del Duomo (north) with Piazza San Firenze (south). You'll find a mix of retail shops, eateries and hotels, the historic Badia Fiorentina Monastery and a couple of museums, most notably the National Museum of Bargello.

This street in Florence is lined with restaurants/bars, hotels/apartments, museums and leather shops and leads from the Duomo to Piazza San Firenze. There are also quite a few historical buildings lining this street. When we walked this street, window shopping at 1830, it was almost deserted.

Via del Proconsolo is a nice street. It leads directly to the Duomo, depending of course where you come from and where you are heading. It is a busy street with many cafes, restaurants, and a huge variety of other stores, many 'tourist' ones too. At one point there are even some street stalls as well. It is close to some great historical buildings and sites, the Duomo being one. There are many others.

A heavily traveled street that runs from Piazza del Duomo to Piazza di San Firenze. It is lined with restaurants, bars, hotels and many leather stores. It is also home to Badia Fiorentina and Museo Nazionale del Bargello. We walked back to the Duomo this way after touring the Uffizi.

Pick your battles. This was really low on our priority of streets to walk. It is a street; it connected us with the Duomo from or starting point at the Palazzo Vecchio. The best part was the "reveal" upon terminating our walk at the Duomo, when it showed itself in all its magnificence.
