STROLLING THROUGH FLORENCE
Starting from the Marino bus stop, in Piazzale Montelungo, Florence has a wealth of choices to visit. You can walk on foot and discover its exceptional heritage. Walking along Via Valfonda, all the way to the end, you’ll reach the Basilica of Santa Maria Novella. Then, in the heart of the city, in front of Santa Maria del Fiore, which everyone calls the Duomo, stands the Dome of Brunelleschi, the tallest building in the city. The Basilica of Santa Croce is a wonderful place where you can find an invaluable patrimony, which includes the tomb of Michelangelo, “protected” by three sculptures representing Painting, Sculpture, and Architecture.
An experience of this magnitude can be lived out by contemplating the Ponte Vecchio, one of the symbols of the city and one of the most photographed in the world, as well as the Church of Santa Maria Maggiore and the Uffizi Gallery, an invaluable collection of works of art.
