Duomo Santa Maria del Fiore in Florence (Florence)
Duomo Santa Maria del Fiore in Florence is the fourth biggest cathedral in the world, and one of the most famous monuments in Italy. The construction of the cathedral was initiated in 1296, and it took the builders 150 years before the magnificent cathedral was finished. Next to the cathedral an 82-m high bell tower makes it possible to get an impressing view of the entire city. This monument is an absolute must if you are visiting Florence.
The Ponte Vecchio bridge (Florence)
Ponte Vecchio is a famous bridge from the 14th century. It is known for the many silver- and goldsmiths whose workshops line the bridge. Ponte Vecchio was the only bridge that wasn't destroyed by the Second World War bombings.
The Uffizi Gallery (Florence)
The Palazzo degli Uffizi was built by Vasari in the 16th century. Today the building houses the most important art collection in Italy. The gallery has an impressing collection of paintings dating back to the period of time between the 13th and the 18th century where all the famous Italian painters are represented.
The Leaning Tower of Pisa (Tuscany)
The Leaning Tower of Pisa was built in 1173 at a time when Pisa had great military success. The tower is famous for it's beauty, but certainly also because of the fact that it is leaning. It has been leaning since its construction as a result of the softness of the ground upon which it stands. Under normal circumstances, the tower would have collapsed many years ago, but because the construction was interrupted several times for the reason of an ongoing war, and due to the flexibility of the limestone used for the tower, it is still standing. The tower itself is closed for visitors, but it still draws a crowd of people wanting to take a picture of the spectacular Leaning Tower of Pisa.
The vineyards (Tuscany)
The countryside of Tuscany is covered with vineyards, and many of the winegrowers welcome visitors for a tasting of their products.
