Must-see gems in one of the world’s most beloved cities
Discovering Florence’s historic centre

Florence’s centre is home to outstanding historical treasures, which is why, in 1982, UNESCO declared the area a World Heritage Site. It’s not hard to agree with that decision: a visit to piazza Duomo and you’ll be treated to incredible traces of the Renaissance, like the Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore - built in a typically Italian Gothic style - and Giotto’s famed bell tower. The cathedral’s imposing dome, built by Brunelleschi, remains an outstanding example of architectural genius.
