Duomo, Florence Duomo, Florence Florence was founded by Julius Caesar on a major road from Rome to France. In the middle ages, Florence became a very wealthy city, as a thriving trade centre for wool and silk. Finance was also big business in Florence - Florentine bankers issued the first monetary bills, and also the well-known florin. The most famous family dynasty of Florence, the Medici, were pre-eminent in the banking world. With their power and money, they commissioned artists, architects and craftsmen from all over Europe to satisfy their taste of style and grandeur. One of the most opulent constructions of the period is the iconic Basilica di Santa Maria del Fiore, or Duomo for short. Its impressively massive octagonal cupola is actually 2 domes, one inside the other Opposite the Duomo is the Baptistery - its large doors are faced with an intricately detailed bronze relief.

Ponte Vecchio, Florence Ponte Vecchio, Florence Another must-see iin Florence is the Ponte Vecchio over the River Arno. This much-photographed bridge was originally constructed in Roman times. Modern jewelry shops occupy the ancient buildings lining the bridge.

Galleria dell’ Accademia, Florence Galleria dell’ Accademia, Florence In 1784, the Grand Duke of Tuscany requisitioned a convent and a friary and converted the building into a Gallery for the use of students in the adjacent Accademia delle Belle Arti. Today the Galleria dell'Accademia in Florence is visited by people wanting to see Michelangelo's David, the world's most celebrated sculpture. The museum is also home to five more Michelangelo sculptures - the four unfinished Prisoners and St. Matthew.

Leaning Tower of Pisa Leaning Tower of Pisa Pisa's famous Leaning Tower was the bell tower for the nextdoor cathedral. Construction began in the late 12th century, and continued for about 200 years. Even before it was completed, it was obvious to the builders that the ground was too soft, and the foundations to shallow, because the tower began to lean. The tower has been closed to visitors for long times in recent history, to allow for stabilisation works, so you might want to check if it's open before going.
