Florence day 1

IMG_8037

Hello guys.  Time passed so quickly after my trip in Florence a few weeks ago. I still remember how fun during my trip. As you know Florence is one of the famous and popular cities in Italy. Florence is the most popular city in Tuscany. Florence is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world and Florence is all about art and many famous artists were born here such as Donatello and Michelangelo.

Florence is quite a small city just 1 or 2 days are enough to explore the main sights and attractions in Florence by foot. I spent the first day in the afternoon and the second day in the morning to discover the main attractions here. Here are some of the interesting places on the first day that I had been discovered. (I will soon posting about my second day)

Basilica di Santa Croce situated on the Piazza di Santa Croce.  It is the burial place of some of the most illustrious Italians, such as Michelangelo, Galileo, Machiavelli, Foscolo, Gentile and Rossini, thus it is known also as the Temple of the Italian Glories and it is the largest Franciscan church in the world.
