"Florence has a "flower capital" of the beautiful name, romantic Xu Zhimo gave it a stunning translation of the "cold green", the Baihua Cathedral itself pink, squash green, cream marble decoration, for the church to add a charming appearance, The beautiful designs and decorations are like blooming flowers under the Florentine sky. When approaching the famous Cathedral of the Hundred Flowers of Our Lady, the macroscopic appearance is very striking and bright. There is no art not carved here. The Cathedral of the Hundred Flowers of Our Lady is listed as a World Heritage Site as part of the historic center of Florence."

Reasons to Recommend: 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.

"The Uffiz Museum of Art is a world-famous painting museum. Because it is too famous, there are always long lines at the door. We have been waiting for a long line to get in. We were hungry in the middle. We also bought a sandwich "blind box". Why is it called a blind box? Because this sandwich shop also has a long line. Each guest can choose the ingredients and sauces according to their taste, all marked in Italian, we can't understand the ingredients, the sauces can't understand, I took the small blackboard at the door, chose the formula they recommended, the taste is still quite good. There are many famous paintings in the gallery. It is said that interested students can see them for a week. We belong to the level of the layman. It is recommended to see the museum of art galleries in Europe and the United States, to do a lot of homework in advance, otherwise really do not understand."

Reasons to Recommend: 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".

"I'm so happy to share my cold Cui's healing moments I miss the day when I was carrying a beer and I was walking down the steps with three or two people to give the fiddler coins to the street. I came to Michelangelo Square to watch the band and enjoy the big picture"

Reasons to Recommend: Though originally intended by architect Giuseppe Poggi as a gallery to display the works of Michelangelo, today Piazzale Michelangelo is a panoramic lookout for tourists and locals alike. A sweeping view of Florence from this observation point captures the entire city: the Duomo, Forte Belvedere, Santa Croce, the Ponte Vecchio and more. After snapping a few photos, grab a cappuccino in the square's neoclassical-style restaurant and examine a bronze replica of The David which, along with a few other sculptures, were brought up the hill as an attempt to fulfill Poggi's original dream.

"Ponte Vecchio, built in 1345, is the oldest bridge in Florence, Italy ( Emerald Cui). The Ponte Vecchio was previously a corridor from the Uffizi Palace to the Betti Palace on the other side. Very beautiful scenery and suitable for the whole family tour!"

Reasons to Recommend: 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.

"The courtyard can be entered casually. The interior and exterior of the Medici family mansion look very low-key, but the waistline design of the building is very particular when looking carefully, and the courtyard is also very neat. It feels that the Medici family is indeed more restrained. noble."

Reasons to Recommend: Palazzo Medici Riccardi which was designed by Michelozzo di Bartolomeo is a prime example of Renaissance-style architecture.

While it was originally built for the head of the Medici banking family, the Marchesi Riccardi family later bought it and expanded the Palazzo during the seventeenth century. You can still find Baroque frescoes by Luca Giordano and various sculptures in the courtyard.
