Florence visit should be based on all of the historic places and else afterwards, so, pay a visit to this one as well.

This is a treasure in Florence with some stunning pieces by Michelangelo and, of course, the David that does not require hours of waiting and sharing with hundreds of other tourists. It is a beautiful museum that is not over-curated and overwhelming. Instead it is...More

The tower has best views in Florence. The 'other' David is spectacular and no queues!! An amazing hall that defies logic as to how it could have been constructed. Do not miss this one.

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
