One never gets tired of visiting Piazza della Repubblica. We went many times during our 4 day stay. The Colonna dell’Abbondanza marks the spot of the old Roman settlement. It is an experience, especially the copies of ancient Greek statues.

Florentia, as it was called by Latins, is permeated by
an eternal beauty spread in all corners of the city.
The historic center is characterized by the immensity
of the Duomo, able to transport tourists into the
brightest age of Florence: the Renaissance. Who does
not know the Brunelleschi Dome, San Giovanni
Baptistery and the Giotto’s Campanile? Everything is
enclosed here and it would be easy to imagine the city
