The wealth of Florence pictures displayed on various web sites is an indication of the popularity of this city as a tourist destination. Florence is considered the birthplace of the Renaissance, and as such, her buildings house a wealth of art treasures from that golden period in Italian history. Even those who've never been to Florence will recognize pictures of the Ponte Vecchio (Old Bridge) and the Duomo (Cathedral) that dominates the city's skyline.
Here are some of our favorite Florence pictures, taken on a trip to the city a few years ago. It was difficult to choose from so many beautiful images, but in the end we settled for the more recognizable ones.
The River Arno
The Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore
Ghiberti's Gates of Paradise
