Literally translating to “Old bridge”, Ponte Vecchio is one of the trademarks of Florence. It is a medieval stone bridge built over the river Arno and is famous for the shops built along it, as once was common.
Just around the corner you’ll find the Palazzo Vecchio situated in Piazza della Signoria. The building is Florence’s town hall and was built in 1299. Here you’ll find a copy of Michelangelo’s David but don’t worry, you’ll get to see the original by the end of your tour.
Follow your guide and listen to the stories of how Florence’s politics influenced the development of Italy, and how Dante created the Italian language from the Florentine dialect. At some point you’ll get to Florence’s Cathedral, the Duomo di Santa Maria del Fiore. The construction process began in 1296 and was completed in 1436 with the dome designed by Brunelleschi. Admire the polychrome marble panels that decorate the façade of the church, enjoy the mix of the Gothic style with the more delicate look given by Brunelleschi’s dome. The complex of Santa Maria del Fiore includes also St. John’s Baptistery and Giotto’s Campanile , the bell-tower that plays an interesting optical illusion on its admirers.
