If Florence is where you wish to tie the knot, the possibilities to gaze at its unrivaled artistic and architectural treasures are unlimited.
While in Venice or Rome you can simply wander for hours without getting the real feeling you’re missing something specific, though Florence is an open-air museum, you can hardly resist the temptation of setting foot in one of the many educational museums or admire some of its endless paintings collection.
Florence’s architectural design is synonymous with elegance and harmony, finding the utmost expression in the Renaissance age.
You cannot miss the vast paintings collection of Uffizi or the Museo dell’ Opera del Duomo. Amaze at San Lorenzo’ church, Basilic of Santo Spirito, and at the ”Cappella dei Pazzi”, eloquently decorated by Brunelleschi, a famed Renaissance architect.
You won’t stop contemplating Masaccio’s finely decorated frescoes inside ”Cappella Brancacci”. Masaccio was a famous Renaissance painter.
Again, wander the magnificent Boboli Gardens, a Renaissance architecture masterpiece, and once in there, make your short way to Palazzo Pitti, set right behind the gardens.
Just outside the city walls, one can admire the magnificent hilltop Romanesque San Miniato a Monte Basilica. You can reach the top terrace via a long staircase, ending up enjoying terrific views over the city.
Last, but not least, don’t forget to drop in one of Florence’s lively markets, chock-full of stands selling well-priced local products, mainly food, and packed with cheap, but quality restaurants and take away-eating places. Start off with the major one, Central Market.
