I love looking down from San Miniato al Monte. It's great to be able to walk from Centro Storico (downtown) to there and look towards the Duomo, Campinile and other structures. But from here one might see traces of Michelangelo. He built a wall around...More

As Yogi Berra was supposed to say, "no one goes there anymore, it's too crowded"! Well - this central area of Florence is crowded, amazingly so, but nonetheless is worth wandering about. Just about all the museums are within a ten minute easy walk along...More

Florentia, as it was called by Latins, is permeated by
an eternal beauty spread in all corners of the city.
The historic center is characterized by the immensity
of the Duomo, able to transport tourists into the
brightest age of Florence: the Renaissance. Who does
not know the Brunelleschi Dome, San Giovanni
Baptistery and the Giotto’s Campanile? Everything is
enclosed here and it would be easy to imagine the city
