Florence is the seat of an important university and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It is considered the cradle of the Renaissance and is well known as one of the birthplaces of art and architecture.
Florence is one of the most beautiful cities in the world. Its most famous landmarks are the Duomo (the Cathedral), the Franciscan Church of Santa Croce (the Holy Cross Church), the Ponte Vecchio (the Old Bridge), the Piazza della Signoria (Town Hall Square) and Pitti Palace.
The old town center includes such an amazing collection of masterpieces, that it is difficult to separate the city from its own works of art.
The art, the history, the science as well as the beauty of the natural environment, in such a limited and clearly defined space, make Florence unique and precious, not only to to the eyes of a curious visitor, but also to a scholar and to the citizens themselves.
Thanks to the many extraordinarily beautiful churches, the museums and the art collections, the historical gardens, the squares, the streets and the ancient buildings, the city can reasonably be considered a museum itself and not just a mere container of works of art.
Pisa is an old Maritime Republic, together with Amalfi, Venice and Genoa.
The Piazza dei Miracoli (the Cathedral Square) is the most outstanding of its works of art and is inscribed in the Unesco World Heritage List.
The Cathedral was built between 1063 and 1118 in Romanesque style with white and colorful marble. The bronze door was casted by Bonanno Pisano, the marble Pulpit was carved by Giovanni Pisano.
The leaning tower was built as the bell tower of the Cathedral in 12th Century. It is 180 feet tall and it started leaning ten years after the construction. It is considered one of the most important monument of Italy.
