Romantics and believers of true love I gather you this month as we travel to the land flourishing with artistic heritage.
Filled with the likes of Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci, and Donatello, Florence in Italy is known for its vast collection of sculptures, paintings, and masterpieces that up until now still makes its beholders ogle with awe and admiration.
Also known as Firenze, Florence is the capital of Tuscany and the province of Florence. Its history dates back during the 80 BC when Lucius Cornelius Sulla founded the city for his doyen soldiers. Aside from being a long part of the Roman City, the region experienced its Golden Age during the second millennium when Margrave Hugo chose to settle in Florence instead of Lucca. Further, the metropolis is also known for being the home of Renaissance and the “Athens of the Middle Ages.”
Join the throng of tourists as they roam around the Piazza Della Signoria where majestic edifices like the Palazzo Vecchio, Tribunale Della Mercanzia, Palazzo delle Assicurazion Generali, and the Palazzo Uguccioni are situated. Also, enter the grand Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore also known as The Duomo and its nearby attraction, the Giotto’s Campanile and the Baptistery of Saint John. These three edifices have long been part of the UNESCO World Heritage Site because of its historical significance.
A trip to Florence will not be complete without visiting the Medici Chapels built during the 16thand 17th centuries for the Medici Family. Moreover, pass through the arch bridge of Ponte Vecchio crossing over the River Arno.
