MONUMENTS

There are truly many things to visit in Florence. Listed below are just a few of the most important:
BASILICA DI SANTA CROCE:
is a magnificent Gothic work built by Arnolfo di Cambio in 1294. Its dome walls, as well as the entire basilica are completely covered by Giotto’s frescos;
SANTA MARIA NOVELLA:
where you can admire a series of works by the famous Brunelleschi, Giotto e Masaccio;
CATTEDRALE DI S. M. DEL FIORE o DUOMO DI FIRENZE:
has passed through more than six centuries of history and is the result of the greatest architects and of epoch artists;
BATTISTERO:
is a Romanesque construction in an octagonal form going back to the XI-XII century. Its three doors are of exceptional prominence. The first of these was commissioned by Andrea Pisano and the other two by Lorenzo Ghiberti;
PIAZZA DELLA SIGNORIA:
is characterized by the numerous statues, some of which are not original, that adorn the piazza and that award it wonderful admiration;
PALAZZO VECCHIO:
or della Signoria was planned by Arnolfo di Cambio and completed in 1322 the year in which a great bell was raised up to the top of the tower and was used to advise the townspeople to gather;
GLI UFFIZI:
the building was conceived as the center for the State Administration Offices ( “Uffizi” meaning “offices”) as the Palazzo Vecchio was not large enough to hold them;
PONTE VECCHIO:
is the oldest bridge in Florence as it was the only bridge that was not destroyed during the Second World War. It was built by Neri di Fioravante in 1345;
PALAZZO PITTI:
this structure reflects the model of Palazzo Rinascimentale typical of Brunelleschi: a cube, equal in height and depth, covered with faceted stones.
