Florence: Quick Overview

Though I stayed only one day in Florence and I went just to meet a sister of a friend, I managed to go to the iconic places, which are the Statue of David in the Galleria dell’Academia, the Piazza del Duomo with the outstanding Cathedral Santa Maria di Fiore (if you played Assassin’s Creed 2, you will probably be familiar with her), and the Piazzale Michelangelo, a square on the hill just in front of the Arno River with a smaller replica of the Statue of David. On this special ocassion, I went to the city at night with the camera, dodging drunk people on the streets, which by the way are pretty common in Europe, specially from Germany, the UK, and the US. I won’t lie, it actually was pretty fun once I got used to it, though I never did anything when I was with the camera (the party and my passion are two different sacred things that must remain separated). That night, I captured some gorgeous places like the Piazza della Signoria with the Palazzo Vecchio and some architectural details of Florence. Though I didn’t have the time to go to the Uffizi Gallery, I highly recommend it. This museum is an essential part of the history of the italian sculpture and painting, among other artworks.
