The Exterior of the Florence Duomo
A Renaissance-era dome designed by Filippo Brunelleschi, the Florence Duomo is one of the city’s iconic landmarks. Admire the impressive cathedral from the outside and get a glimpse of its famed bronze Baptistery Doors. Praised by generations of artists and art historians, these doors feature relief sculptures depicting Old Testament stories.
The Old Bridge – Ponte Vecchio
The Ponte Vecchio is Florence’s iconic bridge that crosses the Arno River. Since the 13th century, the Ponte Vecchio bridge has been home to many of Florence’s charming artisan shops. Used by the Medici Family for safe maneuverability, the Ponte Vecchio’s Vasari Corridor connects the Palazzo Vecchio with the Palazzo Pitti. During the Vasari Corridor’s construction, gold and silversmiths replaced the butchers who sold their meats on the bridge. To this day, many jewelers and artisans still sell their goods on the Ponte Vecchio.
