Somebody once pointed out that the result of Italy's history of passion, religious fervor, artistic temperament and political instability were the likes of Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo and the Renaissance. Prompt, impartial, reliable Swiss fence sitters, on the other hand, had produced nothing better than the cuckoo clock. Slightly hard on the Swiss perhaps (they also make great chocolate), but the Italian generalization fits Florence like one of its stylish leather gloves. The city was the cradle of the Renaissance and its art and beauty have drawn travelers for centuries. Its famous icons were created when Florence was a powerful independent republic, ruled by a family of corrupt dukes who assassinated their rivals while pouring their wealth into supporting Michelangelo and his artistic brethren. It's impossible to experience all that Florence has to offer in one visit, but this trail aims to give a taste of what all the fuss is about. You could do it as a simple walking tour to orientate yourself or treat it as a journey to complete over several days.

Beautiful and busy walking the touristy downtown area of Florence (Firenze)! The river is fantastic with all the bridge crossings, the duomo is epic up close and far off and the best view of the city comes from walking up to Piazzale Michaelangelo at sunset with music and drinks to be had with the best panoramic view of Florence.

Deleted this app because to get any use of it you HAVE to subscribe for a whole year and pay about $35. i would have subscribed for a month (2.50) or even 3 but thats not an option. Too bad. Looks like a good app.

Tons of History in a beautiful setting. Walk along the Arno in the same exact place where Dante met Beatrice. Romantic. Very interesting. A lot to see, a lot to learn.
