Here’s some pictures of Florence, the historic Italian town wich was the cradle of renaissance art.
When you walk through the streets of this city you literally stumble in all forms of art, from its impressive architecture to some of the richest and famous museums of the world.
There’s no other place in our planet where you can see masterpieces of Leonardo Da Vinci, Michelangelo Buonarroti, Giotto Di Bondone and many other art masters exposed on the streets, squares and bridges.
This is the Florence Cathedral, the Basilica di Santa Maria del Fiore, with its dome engineered by Filippo Brunelleschi. This picture was taken from the Giotto’s bell tower (Campanile di Giotto).

This is Florence, as seen from the Piazzale Michelangelo.
In this city you can spend an entire day just looking and photographing the facades of houses and stores.
And finally, the most famous landmark of Florence, the Ponte Vecchio (Old Bridge).
TIPS for Photographers: When in Florence, just photograph, no matter where do you point your camera, you certainly will catch something beautiful. =^)
Allright, this is not a tip, so here’s one: be sure to have a wide angle lens in your camera bag. Florence, just like many old cities, has very narrow streets, so the wide angle will help you to get the scenes without losing details of architecture like high windows, doors, archs and ceilings.
