The birthplace of the Renaissance, Florence (Firenze) is spellbinding with its charm and effortless style. The "City of the Lily" overflows with artistic masterpieces that draw thousands of travelers and art lovers worldwide each year. Its highlights include the magnificent Duomo (cathedral), Ghiberti's bronze doors at the Baptistery, Santa Croce Basilica and Piazza della Signoria, Florence's most evocative square.



Revered for its beauty, Florence s Duomo is considered the holy centerpiece of Florence. The red-tiled, sloping dome was created by artist Filippo Brunelleschi, who won a public competition to design it. To this day, the Duomo remains a great achievement of architecture and design.

Situated east of the Duomo on the Piazza Santa Croce is the Basilica di Santa Croce (the Basilica of the Holy Cross). The principal Franciscan church of Florence, the basilica is best known for its Florentine artwork and housing the tombs of Galileo, Machiavelli and Michaelangelo.

Piazza della Signoria

Florence s most evocative square, Piazza della Signoria was created in the 13th century and has always been the political center for Florentine life. Lined with historical buildings and elegant statues, the square retains an air of incomparable beauty and grace.
