My World Tour - Florence, Italy

Back to Home Page          Back to Italy Main Page

Florence – Cradle of the Renaissance, home of Dante, Machiavellian, Michelangelo and Medici. 

The Duomo is the world’s fourth largest cathedral.  It was begun in 1294 and took 150 years to complete. It is famous for it's magnificent dome.

Uffize Gallery houses the Birth of Venus.  Outside is a copy of David, as the original is safely indoors after many people have tried to hack at it. Sorry, no photos allowed of the real David.
