Florence in 20 Photos

I want to continue the “city series” with one of the world’s absolute greatest cities. The following twenty Florence photos will take you on a photographic journey through Florence, one of Italy’s most amazing destinations, a city that changed the world.

Although Italy is filled with beautiful old towns and cities, Florence still stands out from the rest. The capital of Tuscany, which happens to be one of the most stunning rural regions in the world, Florence was the very birthplace of the Renaissance. This was where Michelangelo spent his days painting and sculpting, where Dante wrote his poems, where Donatello created ever-lasting sculptures and statues, where Machiavelli developed and wrote down his thoughts, and where da Vinci did pretty much all of the above.

Florence is filled with stunning buildings, palaces and churches; home to some of the best art museums on earth; and—it wouldn’t be Italy if this wasn’t the case—where you can eat fabulous food.

For more information about what to see and do in Florence, I would like to refer to this blog post of mine, which also includes a selection of Florence photos: Florence in One Day – What to Do?

You can find even more detailed travel information on the website of the Florence Tourist Board.

So, now that we got the intro and the formalities out of the way, let’s move on to what this post really is about: twenty inspiring Florence photos.
