Florence has shaped the history of art in Italy. This city was the birthplace for many artists. Creativity is a major part of Florentine culture and it can be seen everywhere from its historical buildings to its very streets.

The most famous landmark of Florence is the famous Ponte Vecchio, which is a bridge across the Arno River. It is very old, and it has a great deal of history. The city's art also reflects its literary background. Many famous writers have lived in Florence including Dante Alighieri, Petrarch, and Boccaccio. The famed writer Leonardo Da Vinci was born in nearby Vinci near Florence. However, the most well-known painter from Florence is Michelangelo Buonarroti, who was born in the city and is buried in the Basilica di San Lorenzo. Much of Florence has been revitalized since being declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1996. Many parts of the city now have face-lifts and new parks as well as a number of new galleries, restaurants, and museums.

What To Expect

Ponte Vecchio
It is a symbol of the city and one of the most famous bridges in the world. You will visit it with your official tour guide.

Ponte Vecchio is a marble and stone pedestrian bridge in Florence. It crosses the Arno River, connecting the Oltrarno section of the city to that of Santa Croce. The stone bridge was built in the 14th century, and served as a public walkway until the 18th century. It served as a military bridge during World War II. It was rebuilt in 1972-75 using material from the 16th-century balustrade, retaining much of its medieval appearance. The modern design of the new structure is by Pierluigi Spazzapan.
