Florence for free | ITALIA PER SEMPRE | Scoop.it

From Michelangelo to Giotto, the exquisite art in one of the world's most beautiful cities costs nothing – if you know where to look.

 

Late afternoon in Florence and suddenly the sky veers from luminous blue to blushing orange. The light on the Duomo changes in an instant. Brunelleschi's iconic dome burns a deep terracotta. The white, green and pink marble of Giotto's bell tower is incandescent. An Italian sign on the steps of the cathedral says, rather dryly, that "this is a work of art and everyone has the right to admire it". Not to stand and stare would be rude.
