Unesco World Heritage since 1982
The entire historical center of Florence, a treasure chest of works of art and architecture, has been declared a World Heritage Site. From Piazza Duomo, with the Cathedral and the other monuments, to Piazza Signoria, with Palazzo Vecchio and the Loggia dei Lanzi, as well as the Ponte Vecchio, the churches, palaces and museums. Then there are the small streets where you can still breath in the Middle Ages, the craft shops that live on in the popular district of the Oltrarno, the testimonies of some of the greatest artists in the history (Michelangelo, Brunelleschi, Giotto, etc.). In 2021 the Unesco zone was extended and it now also includes Piazzale Michelangelo, San Miniato abbey, San Salvatore church, the Rose Garden, the Iris Garden and Le Rampe, down towards the river.
Here's what you should see in this city.
