Florence is a photographer’s dream. Art, architecture, people, tradition…Around every corner is another photograph. Each one can tell a story. Enjoy these images of Florence.
The original sculpture is in the Piazza della Signoria. This sculpture was created from a single block of marble.
These photos don’t even scratch the surface of all there is to see in Florence. There is always a reason to return.
Have you been to Florence? What is your favorite monument, place, or memory? I’d love to hear it. Please leave a comment.
Wonderful photos! I’m still not sure if the Duomo is crazy-beautiful or crazy-grotesque! Either way, it took my breath away 🙂
Thanks you. I agree with you that the Duomo is breathtaking!

One statue or building, and so many angles to photograph! Thanks for offering us a few more perspectives on Florence.
Grazie Ann Marie,
Florence is a photographer’s dream. I love rhe architecture
Thank you for the return trip to Florence! Sixteen years have passed since we traveled there, but the memories are as fresh as yesterday. When I walked in and saw the David I burst into tears. I had never dreamed I would have the opportunity to see this magnificent sculpture. Another memory…the rich, creamy ice cream cone I licked standing under my umbrella in the main plaza.
Un po' di pepe
I love the Oltrarno and walking up to San Miniato but I have to say my favourite thing is going to Mass at Santa Croce on Sunday mornings. I sit as close as possible to Michelangelo’s tomb and feel the creative inspiration! Ciao, Cristina
Ciao Cristina. Yes that would be beautiful. That church is really beautiful. And to know that so many famous people are buried there it is even more inspirational!

You captured so many favorites! I love that you included the picture of the leather vendor. I tend to wander through the open air market stalls every day when I’m in Florence. Thank you for posting!
Grazie Stacy! I appreciate your comments and am happy you enjoyed my photos
Ahh Florence, what a beautiful city!! You’ve captured the essence brilliantly with your choice of photos – happy memories eh?! Great post, thanks for sharing your visit!
Thanks so much. I love reading everyone’s comments here as well!
The Ponte Vecchio always fascinated me! You could do a series of photos on that alone. And the Duomo!!! Beautiful, Margie! Love your photos.
Absolutely Sherry…both are so gorgeous. Thanks for commenting
My friend and I got caught in a thunderstorm in Firenze. People jumped because of the thunder – then, laughed at themselves. Out came the umbrellas and plastic bags!
Florence is my favorite Italian city. Of course, going to the Accademia to see David is always on my list of what to do. My next favorite gallery is the Bargello. I love walking along the Arno in the evening, and seeing lights reflected off the water at night. Florence is indeed a walking town…climb up to Piazzale Michelangelo, go to the Mercato San Ambrogio or the Mercato Centrale. Climb up Giotto’s tower, or to the top of the Duomo, go to a park and feed the ducks. So much to do, in a beautiful city.
A perfect itinerary Dolly! Tgank you. All great ideas
I hate those wretched love locks!
And as soon as they take them off they come right back!!
I love Florence. I really like wandering the back streets where there are few people and lots of treasures.
Thanks Debra. I wandered through parts of Oltrarno and loved it
