Florence (Tuscany)

Short trip in Florence to discover the many beautiful monuments, like the Giotto bell tower, that this city has to offer. An hike along the Arno river to Ponte Vecchio, as well as additional sightseeing, is also included.

Giotto belltower Catherdal of Santa Maria del Fiore Baptistry of Santa Maria del Fiore

Santa Maria del Fiore is the heart and the symbol of Florence. The complex includes a baptistry, the cathedral and a bell tower. The realization was directed by Giotto and Brunelleschi. Because of the huge size of the monuments, built in a relatively small place, we had to use a wide lens that has produced some degree of distorsion.
