Florence in 2 days, 8 kms and 7 stops
A circular walk: from S. Maria del Fiore to the Uffizi, from Ponte Vecchio to Palazzo Pitti, from Masaccio to Ghirlandaio, from Michelangelo’s David and the Medici graves to the sweetness of Beato Angelico.
Piazza del Duomo: situated in the heart of the city, the complex (cathedral, bell tower and baptistery) forms an extraordinary set of white, green and pink, marble, a proof of the passage of the Florentine art from the Middle Ages to the Renaissance.
Piazza della Signoria: with the stunning background of the Palazzo vecchio, the Loggia and the Uffizi Gallery, the square Piazza della Signoria is still the political center of Florence. It dates back to the thirteenth century, when the Guelphs defeated the Ghibellines and destroyed the tower houses that they had erected in the center of the city. The numerous statues that populate the surroundings of the Palazzo Vecchio and the Loggia make it a veritable outdoor sculpture museum.
Uffizi Gallery is one of the richest museums in the world, whose collections allow us to follow the evolution of Italian painting from the primitive to the seventeenth century.
