Attractions in Florence

Florence delights many visitors with its' attractions. Climbing the top of the Duomo is a sight that must be seen. The view is a 360 panoramic of Florence and the surrounding hills. The David is on the most recognized symbols of Florence. There are two fake Davids located around Florence. One stands tall at the entrance of the Palazzo Vecchio. The other is bronze and can be seen in the middle of Piazzale Michelangelo. Michelangelo's David can be visited at the Accademia.

To see how people lived in the Medieval times visit the newly renovated Palazzo Davanzati. See how the rooms looked and how they kept their rooms. The furniture has been restored to look as if it was the 15th century. There is no better way to see how people lived. The attractions are many and the thrills are many more. What comes to mind when you see Florence in your dreams? Probably one of the big, looming attractions that lures most travelers.

Domes, towers, ancient cobblestones can bring you back to when Florence was ruled by the Medici. There are hot spots that the traveler shouldn't miss. Photo ops are around every corner. It will be something to brag about when you return home.
