Things to see in Florence:
First of all, when you come in Florence you should visit the Uffizi Gallery, Accademia Gallery, Bargello Museum, Pitti Palace and many another museum. Therefore what are the things to see in Florence and that you can not miss?
Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore
The Cathedral of Florence is the symbol of the city and the third largest church in Europe and was built on the ancient Church of Santa Reparata, even today you can see the remains in the crypt. The construction of the church was completed in the fifteenth century but over the years has undergone many changes.
The “Brunelleschi’s Dome“, the largest masonry dome ever built also it contains the largest ever decorated surface: a fresco executed between 1572-1579 by Giorgio Vasari and Federico Zuccari.
The magnificent facade of the Cathedral is of the modern age, dating back to 1887 by Emilio de Fabris and it is probably one of the most important example of the neo-Gothic style in Italy. Finally the Baptistery and the Giotto Tower must not be missing from your visit!
Famous bridge in Florence: “Ponte Vecchio”
Ancient origins and numerous collapses over the centuries make Ponte Vecchio one of the symbols of the city.
In 1400 Ponte Vecchio was the headquarters of the meat market, while today it is the home of luxury jewelers. If you want to have an unforgettable experience you should definitely try a trip on the boat of theRenaioli because you get a better view of the bridge from the boat. The guests of Casa Rovai b&b in Florence have really enjoyed this experience. Finally you can contact us if you want to book a room and help to enjoy this romance experience: https://bit.ly/2CxZ6Y1
Florence leather school
A unique experience in Florence is to observe the Florentines who work the leather at the “leather school” near the church of Santa Croce, 5 minutes from Casa Rovai b & b. We recommend booking a visit in advance because it is very difficult to find availability. After the visit, it is possible to buy bags and other leather goods just made at the school. Below the photo of the school: on the left the school at 1950 and on the right the school today.
Alessandro Dari | Museum and workshop
The workshop of the master goldsmith Alessandro Dari is in an ancient palace of the 400 where the Madonna del Cardellino of Raffaello was found. A part of the workshop is used as a workshop where the master goldsmith teaches his students how gold was worked in the Renaissance period. It is a unique experience to visit the shop, it seems like going back in time!
San Lorenzo Market | Florence experience
The ancient market of San Lorenzo is composed of the external “Mercatino”, hundreds of stalls selling leather artifacts that surround the main building which instead hosts 2 floors dedicated to food!
It is an obligatory stop for those who love Florentine cuisine and culinary art.
Officina Profumo–Pharmaceutica di Santa Maria Novella
The Medicean Park of Pratolino “Villa Demidoff“ (about 40 minutes from Florence) is recognized as a UNESCO heritage.
Most important attraction of the park is “Il colosso dell ‘Appennino” (by Gianbologna), it is the great statue you see in this photo. Pratolino hosts numerous works by Buontalenti and two romantic Italian gardens.
Unfortunately, it is not possible to visit the park all year round, so it is necessary to organize oneself.
