The Piazza della Repubblica is impressive no matter from which direction you approach. The relatively modern triumphal arch and the square itself, the cafes and bars and people watching opportunities. There seemed to be renovation going on which disrupted the ambiance somewhat but the carousel...More

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
