At the heart of this district lies the magnificent Piazza Santissima Annunziata, a beautiful space dominated by the presence of the elegant SS.Annunziata Church. This church originally stood outside the second circle of city walls. Between 1444 and 1481 Michelozzo, Pagno Portinari and Antonio Manetti (with suggestions from the architect Alberti) remodelled it into its present form.continue
Sant’Ambrogio is definitely one of the most liveable neighborhoods in the city. From this district it’s only a ten-minute walk to all the major monuments, squares and museums of the city. And yet, due to its location just outside of the most heavily-touristed areas – it hasn’t been overrun by mass tourism.continue
The Duomo, Baptistery and Giotto bell tower district. The Cathedral or Duomo of Florence as we can admire it today is the end result of years of work that spanned over six centuries of history. Its basic architectural design was conceived by Arnolfo di Cambio at the end of the 13th century; the cupola that has made it a symbol for the whole city was created by that genius of the Renaissance, Filippo Brunelleschi.continue
Piazza Santa Croce is an excellent example of a quintessential ‘Renaissance square‘, where perfect and impressive architectural geometry has been designed around the life of the community and its citizens. Here man is not dominated by the church and architecture but is, rather, at the center of the scene.continue
This is definitely the most typical and ‘genuine’ district of the city.
Here the masses of tourists only pass through and its streets are characterized by the presence of many handicraft workshops, art and jewellery schools, typical restaurants, traditional shops, street markets, ancient churches and old buildings where it’s still possible today to discover the rhythms and colours of a ‘quotidian’ and noisy Florence.continue
San Niccolò is one of the most authentic and attractive neighborhoods in the city. It’s located in the Oltrarno zone (other side of the Arno River), at the foot of the beautiful hills that house Piazzale Michelangelo and Forte Belvedere, far from the overcrowded tourist-beaten tracks.continue
