Florence – Italy

Here it is: The Art Capital of the World. Every time I visit Florence, I get overwhelmed by the amount of art in this city. If you are on a tied schedule, you have to plan well your visit to not miss the Duomo (Cattedrale di Santa Maria del Fiore), Giotto’s Bell Tower, the Baptistery, the Uffizi Museum, Ponte Vechio, Palazzo Vechio, Boboli Gardnes with Buontalenti Grotto, the Pitti Palace, Michelangelo’s David at Accademia Gallery, and Museum Galileo (science museum) where you can see the first microscope among so many other Renaissance discoveries.
