About Florence

Florence was an artistic and cultural center of the Renaissance. The historic center of Florence has numerous great buildings and has already been listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The Cattedrale di Santa Maria del Fiore (Florence Cathedral) is absolutely stunning to behold. The Ponte Vecchio has become a unique sight on the Arno River due to the many art, jewelry and souvenir shops lining the bridge. So many pieces of art have been collected by the major art galleries that it goes beyond measure. Go to the Uffizi to see astounding masterpieces by Leonardo da Vinci and Giotto di Bondone, and enjoy Michelangelo’s original "David" at the Galleria dell'Accademia. After worshiping at the altar of humanity's priceless art treasures, you should go looking for some delicious local specialties. Lampredotto sandwiches and Bistecca alla Fiorentina are definitely part of an essential gourmet experience in Florence.

Art Gallery
Uffizi Gallery, adjacent to the Municipal Square, is one of the best art galleries in Italy, and even Europe. The gallery was originally the official residence of the Medici family. The entire, giant, palace-sized building took over 20 years to complete. The gallery contains almost all of the Medici family's art collection. The Artwork nearly spans the entire history of art, from ancient Greek sculptures to 18th-century Venetian paintings. There are also many original master works, including Michelangelo's "Holy Family", Raphael's "23-year-old self-portrait", and Da Vinci's "Adoration of the Magi".

UNESCO World Heritage-Cultural Site    
The Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore is the main church of the Catholic Diocese of Florence. It is the third-largest cathedral in the world and a symbol of the Italian city. In 1982, the cathedral was listed as a World Heritage Site and part of the historical center of Florence. The outside of the church is matched with bright red, dark green, and white marble to form spectacular geometric designs that display the classical, elegant and free interpretation characteristic of the Renaissance era. It is both dramatic and beautiful from any angle.

#Italy Travel Guide#Florence Travel Guide
Florence Many Art Museums I I like it very much. In addition to the Uffizi Gallery, Pitti Palace is my second favorite. Because there are eleven Raphael's famous paintings here, I like to see his paintings. No matter which museum I am in, I can always see his paintings at a glance. His Madonna is particularly elegant and comfortable, and his pen is delicate and moving.
.
Rafael Raffaello Sanzio, one of the three Renaissances of the Renaissance, is a painter I like very much. People are not only handsome, but also have high emotional intelligence and are deeply loved by the pope. After learning a lot of famous artists, he gradually got his own style of painting. His paintings of the Virgin Mary were even jealous of angels.
.
There are many paintings from the 17th and 19th centuries in the Pitti Palace, and there are not many people, so you can see the pictures well. The interior of the palace itself is decorated with atmosphere and luxury, and it is unique in the beauty of the Diqi family. (Fig. 2-5)
.
Select some of the most special works here:
.
1Raphael's "The Virgin in the Chair"
.
The images of the Virgin Mary, the Holy Child and John in the painting are more lively than any of the portraits of the Virgin and Child. The perfect quality of the Virgin is thanks to his keen insight into the human world.
.
2Raphael's "Fonarina - Woman wearing a veil"
.
This is considered to be a replica of Da Vinci's famous "Mona Lisa" Raphael Masterpieces depict half-covering under delicate thin sand
