Florence is an Italian city with amazing architecture. It is the capital of the Tuscany region. Being a history buff, I had been planning to visit this city for a long time. So, I finally made it to this city this winter. The places of significance and the architectural buildings simply took my heart away. Let’s take a quick look at the things that you can do when you are in Florence.
This is one of the most celebrated cathedrals to be found. Even though it was constructed in 1436, the front façade wasn’t done until the 19th century. The white marble covered front façade is just marvelous. The green and pink polychrome design along with the style of the interior got to be surprised. It speaks of grandeur.
You might have the misconception that Giotto’s Campanile is linked to Duomo. Nonetheless, this is a separate structure. It is a great example of Gothic architecture. Having a stunning design, it doesn’t fail to impress the visitors. It is divided into 5 levels and the exterior tower has a polychrome feature. You will find the lovely pink and green colors on Duomo looks brilliant. I climbed up to the tower to catch a fantastic view. Be careful, there are 414 steps.
This is a significant administrative building. It was established in 1299 and the architecture has been designed by the ones who worked on Duomo. At the front façade, you will find a long series of arms. This actually represents important people and families. The interior has a sublime design.
This is a famous bridge in the city, mentioned to me by a friend who offers house cleaning services in Denver as part of her business. Tracy travels all around the world and mentioned I should definitely make a stop here, so glad I did. I found a number of shops on the side of the bridge. Also, the view that it offers is just breathtaking. Other than walking on this bridge, you can walk along Corridoio Vasariano, too.
