Things To Do in Vinci

Santa Maria del Fiore
4.6/5
1,341 Reviews
Church
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.
Uffizi Gallery
4.7/5
1,000 Reviews
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".
Academy Of Florence Art Gallery
4.5/5
328 Reviews
Art Gallery
The Academy Of Florence Art Gallery was built in 1562 and is an affiliated Accademia Gallery of Fine Arts in Florence. It is famous for Michelangelo's "David Statue". The statue of David was placed on the Municipal Square. However, the famous man was too popular and the school had to move indoors to protect his safety. In addition to the statue of David, Michelin's other beautiful works are displayed here, where you can also see important paintings by many famous alumni, as well as modern and contemporary student works. The Academy Of Florence Art Gallery is an integrated place for European painting art, with works by the Venetian painter Toscana painters such as Giorgio.
Leaning Tower of Pisa
4.6/5
661 Reviews
Historical Architecture
UNESCO World Heritage-Cultural Site    
The Leaning Tower of Pisa is not only a landmark building in Italy, but also one of the wonders in the history of world architecture. The tower is actually a free-standing bell tower of the Cathedral of Pisa, located in the central square of Pisa: the Miracle Square. The building has a cylindrical shape and is made of white marble. The bottom of the tower is engraved with reliefs and on the top there is a bell pavilion. It is said that the Leaning Tower of Pisa is built with spoils transported by six ships by the Pisa fleet. The tower is tilted to the southeast, and many people believe this is due to an uneven foundation and soft soils.
Ponte Vecchio
4.5/5
539 Reviews
Literally meaning "old bridge", Italians could have, perhaps, come up with a better name for what was to become one of the more iconic monuments in one of its most iconic cities. Nevertheless, this old bridge, which was only one of six spared by retreating Germans in 1944, is a monument to all that a monarch can accomplish. Once filled with butcher shops, which would dump their old/rotted animal carcasses into the river below, Grand Duke Fernandino I demanded that all butchers be replaced by goldsmiths-- thus ridding the bridge of its stench. Nowadays, rather than rotting animal carcass, Ponte Vecchio is the most golden spot in Italy. The bridge is lined with jewelry shops and vendors (careful, you'll likely encounter a scam or two) and is pleasant enough to walk down in the evening time, when it's not packed from end to end with the thousands of toursits who traverse the Arno over its cobblestones daily.
Piazza della Signoria
4.6/5
526 Reviews
Square
The Piazza della Signoria has a reputation as an open-air sculpture museum and is the center of political life in the city for centuries. The square is home to the Vecchio Palace, a replica of Michelangelo's sculpture "David" and the Neptune Fountain. The Piazza della Signoria is open and surrounded by the Uffizi Gallery, the mercenary gazebo and numerous cafes and bars. The famous Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore is located just north of it and can be reached by foot from the alley.
