“米开朗基罗广场是佛罗伦萨俯瞰该市美丽全景的最佳地点，从这里看到的全景出现在许多明信片和图片中。 由建筑师朱塞佩·波吉于1869年 在历史城区南部的小山上兴建，当时佛罗伦萨还是意大利的首都，百废待兴。为了纪念米开朗基罗，广场上有一些在佛罗伦萨市内其他地方也能见到的复制作品：大 卫和圣罗伦佐美第奇小圣堂的四个寓言。这些复制品是由青铜制成的，而原件则都是由白色大理石制成。”
“The Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore is an imposing gothic church built on the site where the ancient Cathedral of Florence stood, the Church of Santa Reparata, whose remains are visible in the crypt. Visiting the Cathedral is free! The entrance to the Cathedral is free and for this reason, there are long queues to enter. Don’t worry, usually, the line moves quite fast. The number of visitors inside the Cathedral is limited mainly because of the noise that comes to be created in this place of religious worship; recently (from July 16, 2012) to improve the situation, the directors of the Duomo decided to oblige groups of more than 4 people to rent radios or audio guides (cost from 2 up to 2.50 euros per person) in order to reduce the noise of visitors and increase the number of persons allowed in every single moment. ”
“Palazzo Vecchio was the headquarter of the Florentine government and it still seats the City Council. Centrepiece is the Salone dei Cinquecento, one of the most prestigious rooms in the whole of Italy.”
