3. PALAZZO VECCHIO
Headquarters of the city municipality, a wonderful example of eighteenth-century architecture. Time ago the building, called Priors, was the the Signoria's Headquarters, or the city council. Climb the tower and enjoy Florence from above.
4. PONTE VECCHIO

Immense and to lose your head, both the palace and the garden, but if you're planning a romantic stroll, this is definitely the place to do it.
6. NEW MARKET

7. SANTA MARIA NOVELLA
Beautiful and a short walk from the train station that bears its name, an unmistakable style. A must!
8. HOUSE OF DANTE
Not exactly a must, since it is not exactly the real one, but at least you have an idea of where he lived, since his writings describe exactly that area.
9. CHURCH OF SANTA CROCE
One of the greatest achievements in the Gothic style, as well as being one of the most impressive and big churches in the city. Inside there're the tombs of famous Tuscan and Florentine.
10. PIAZZALE MICHELANGELO
The climb, if done on foot, includes a series of strenuous steps, but the effort is then fulfilled by the view of the city that has no equal!
