"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.

"The "L" square in front of the old palace in Florence, Italy, is named after the old palace (the palace of the lord). It is the origin and history of the Republic of Florence, and still enjoys the reputation of the city's political center. This is a gathering place for Florentines and many tourists. It was a central square in ancient Rome, surrounded by theatres, baths and dyeing shops. The Piazza della Duomo, built in the thirteenth and fourteenth centuries, is considered one of Italy's most beautiful squares for its exquisite architecture. It has many sculptures and boutiques of Michelangelo's David (replica), the Fountain of the Sea God, Paltheus and Medusa. Tickets, time: No tickets and time limit address: P.za della Signoria, 50122 Firenze FI, Italian bus: take C2 to Condotta station and get off, pass Via delle Farine Street to Via della Condotta Street, walk about 100 meters to reach the square."

Reasons to Recommend: 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.

"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.

"Florence is the capital of Tuscany, the birthplace of the Renaissance and the cradle of modern Western art. The name gives a feeling of full artistic feeling, walking in the old town that has not changed for centuries, and every corner exudes artistic charm. Here are quaint and beautiful churches, famous museums, galleries and countless art treasures. What you have to do in Florence: 1 Scene: The narrow spiral stairway in the Cathedral of Our Lady of Our Lady: 800 steps, the old city is a panoramic view. 2. Step up the Giotto Bell Tower: The bell tower is next to the church, and the best angle for the red dome of the Baihua Cathedral is here. Just climbed the church dome, and then climbed the 400 steps to the bell tower, all have good physical strength. Uffizi Gallery: Buy a Chinese version of the guidebook at the entrance, and print it in fine print and text. Do your homework in advance and select the famous collections: Paul Uchero's Battle of San Romano, Potticelli's Popular Works Spring and the Birth of Venus, Titian's Urbinovinas, The Flower God, Raphael's Virgin Mary, Strogs' portrait, Da Vinci's Angelic Joy, the Worship of the Three Drs. Oriental, Caravaggio's Medusa, Bacchus, etc. 4. The Art Gallery of the Faculty of Florence: Michelangelo's David Statue, a handsome man who must be seen at the scene. 5. The Medicil Family Chapel: Michelangelo's Day and Night, Morning and Statue of the Dawn. 6. Michelangelo Square watches the sunset, the city of the cold green under the sunset, the bridge of Vichio and the river of Arno are full of romantic poetry and painting."

Reasons to Recommend:  Campanile di Giotto, which means Giotto's Bell Tower, is a free chime tower which is arranged among a group of structures which incorporate Florence Cathedral on the Piazza del Duomo, situated in Florence, Italy. The tower is one of the masterpieces of the Gothic design found in numerous Florentine structures. The campanile contains seven ringers and several works of art. All the present works of art in the campanile are generations, as the firsts were evacuated somewhere in the range of 1965 and 1967 and are currently shown in the Museo dell'Opera del Duomo, which is situated behind the basilica.

"The Palazzo Viccio (Palazzo Vecchio, Italian for "Old Palace") is the city hall of Florence, Italy. It overlooks the Piazza della Palazzo (Piazza della Signoria), is the historical center of Florence, and the main place of the origin and history of the Republic of Florence, and still maintains its reputation as the focus of city politics."

Reasons to Recommend: Imposing and Romanesque, the Palazzo Vecchio is Florence, Italy's palatial museum and town hall commanding a view of the Piazza della Signoria, famous for its exterior display of an ersatz Michelangelo's David. As one of Italy's most intriguing museums, the Palazzo Vecchio is a must-see for any visitor desiring to experience the historical beauty and opulent elegance of old Italy.

"Santa Croce is also a typical church in Florence, with white as the background and the green facade as a pattern of painted colors. The square of this church should be the largest in the city, so it is very upright."

Reasons to Recommend: Located in Piazza Santa Croce, the Basilica of Santa Croce is decorated with masterpieces by art masters and is a quintessence of Renaissance architecture and art. The exit of the Basilica di Santa Croce is located on the facade of the church. There are many handicraft shops, restaurants and cafes in the surrounding area. There are also various performances and entertainment activities in the square. You may wish to take a stroll around.

"The Baptistery of St. John in Florence is located in the Piazza del Duomo, opposite the famous Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore and the Bell Tower of Giotto. The Baptistery has three bronze gates with very exquisite reliefs. It is called the Gate of Heaven.” The exquisite reliefs attracted many tourists to take pictures, and it was a big circle. It is said that the interior decoration of the baptistery is also extremely exquisite, there are many sculptures and murals inside, but unfortunately there is no chance to visit it. This baptistery is the place where many Renaissance leaders are baptized, and it is also the baptistery for all Florence Catholics. It is very famous in the local area."

"This is a historic square with the 18th century Arc de Triomphe and the 13th century Saint Gallo Gate. It has always been Porta San Gallo Square (Porta San Gallo Square). In 1738, the Arc de Triomphe of Lorraine was erected on the square to celebrate the arrival of the Habsburg-Lorraine dynasty in Florence. In 1865, the demolition of the medieval city wall allowed the architect Giuseppe Poggi to reshape the area, which was completed in 1875 in the oval square currently surrounded by the palace. In the middle of the tree-lined park is a pool with a fountain in front of the Arc de Triomphe. The name of the square at the time was Camillo Cavour Square, which was changed to Costanzo Ciano Square in 1930, Muti Square in 1944, and Freedom Square in 1945."
