“The Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore is an imposing gothic church built on the site where the ancient Cathedral of Florence stood, the Church of Santa Reparata, whose remains are visible in the crypt. Visiting the Cathedral is free! The entrance to the Cathedral is free and for this reason, there are long queues to enter. Don’t worry, usually, the line moves quite fast. The number of visitors inside the Cathedral is limited mainly because of the noise that comes to be created in this place of religious worship; recently (from July 16, 2012) to improve the situation, the directors of the Duomo decided to oblige groups of more than 4 people to rent radios or audio guides (cost from 2 up to 2.50 euros per person) in order to reduce the noise of visitors and increase the number of persons allowed in every single moment. ”

“It is the symbol of the city and, for more than seven centuries, the seat of its government. Palazzo Vecchio bears extraordinary testimonies from all the highlights of Florence's history and art. From the remains of the Roman-era theatre preserved underground, we move on to the sumptuous environments of the monumental districts decorated by famous artists of the 15th and 16th centuries, finally arriving at the spectacular panoramic views of the walkway and the tower. Among the masterpieces in the building, the Judith of Donatello, the paintings of Bronzino in the Chapel of Eleanor and the Genius of Victory by Michelangelo. Loggia dei Lanzi is called that because the Guard house of Grand Duke Cosimo I, who gathered under the Loggia, was partly made up of lansquenets. The construction dates back to the period between 1376 and 1382; the loggia was used to house the numerous popular public assemblies and official ceremonies of the Florentine Republic in the presence of the people, Starting from the 16th century, this space was destined to house some masterpieces sculptural, becoming one of the first exhibition spaces in the world. Among the statues most important we find Perseus Benvenuto Cellini”
