Florence is a charming town, kernel of the Rennaissance, and blessed with the greener end of the Mediterranean climate spectrum.
While Florence has its modern areas, it seems heavily steeped in past glories and rich with distinct sculpture and architecture.

The most was made of our few days in town. On the schedule was a day of riding bikes in Tuscany, strolling around in Boboli Gardens and Pitti Palace and a bit of milling around town a bit to see the sights you see on this page.
In the Galleria dell'Academia the original statue of David still presides, but I cannot find the negatives for those images. However, a copy of Michelangelo's master work posing outside the Palazzo Vecchio on the left here. On the right of the photo is the corridor of the Piazzale degli Uffizi which leads to the River Arno. These and other famous scenes were artistically shot locations in Ridley Scott's Hannibal.

All these buildings are in the classic downtown area of Florence. The Cathedral Santa Maria del Fiore, Palazzo Vecchio in Piazza della Signoria, and Santa Maria Novella, all in a radius around Piazza della Republica.
