Florence is the capital city of Italy’s Tuscany region. It has been home to many renowned humans such as Dante Alighieri, Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci, Galileo Galilei, Guccio Gucci; the list goes on.
The major cities of Italy’s Tuscany region are nestled in the valleys and basins of the Apennine Mountains. Though not as immense as the Alps (Switzerland is about 5 hours north of Florence by train), the northern Apennines make for a picturesque view and can provide a challenging hike!
In this photograph we see three of Florence’s many famous landmarks – the Duomo Di Firenze Cathedral on the right, the Palazzo Della Signoria tower in the center, and the Ponte Vecchio Bridge on the left. I captured this picture from the Piazzale Michelangelo, which provides a great panoramic view of Florence. It is easy to feel inspired when staring down at the most artistic city the world has ever known!
