Florence is one of the most famous cities in Italy, situated at the foot of the northern Apennines, on the banks of the Arno River. The city was founded by the Etruscans, then conquered by the Romans. There are numerous narrow medieval streets with houses, fortresses, but it is dominated by monuments of the Renaissance - the era of greatest prosperity of Florence. Art treasures and monuments of the long history of Florence has attracted many tourists from all over the world.
Florence is clearly divided into three main attractions of the city, towering over the sea of tile roofs: the dome of Santa Maria del Fiore, Giotto's bell tower of striking beauty and a slender tower of the Signoria (Palazzo Vecchio), the medieval town hall. The historic city center - Piazza della Signoria, hosts a collection of masterpieces: the sculpture "David" by Michelangelo, "Perseus" Cellini, etc. In recent years, "David" had to move into the museum and its place in the area took a copy. The Piazza della Signoria connects all the major events of turbulent history of Florence. The main Florentine cathedral Santa Maria del Fiore (XIII-XIV century) is the world's third largest cathedral after St. Peter's in Rome and St. Paul's in London. Next to the cathedral towers whimsically decorated with colored marble bell is the tower of Giotto. One of the most famous churches of Florence is the Gothic Basilica of Santa Croce (the tomb of Michelangelo, Galileo, Machiavelli, Rossini and other great Italians). Very picturesque embankment of the river from the old bridge, the oldest is the Ponte Vecchio, where the jewelry store had been placed for many years. The most famous museum in the city is the Uffizi Gallery.
