Florence is one of the most beautiful cities in Italy, capital of the Tuscany region and birthplace of the Renaissance.
We visited Florence this Autumn and we were not lucky with the weather, it was raining during most of our stay so even if this city is fabulous we left it earlier than planned and went to different place in Italy. It was so rainy that we coudn't really go outside and see the sites, we were in Florence three nights and I could do photos in the city just one day that it was not too bad, the pictures are not that great as it was windy and mostly cloudy. I think I have a good excuse to come back again in the future to see better this beauty ;)
The very beautiful Florence Cathedral
The Cattedrale di Santa Maria del Fiore (Cathedral of Saint Mary of the Flowers) is the main church of Florence. It was begun in 1296 in the Gothic style and completed structurally in 1436.
The gorgeous exterior of the basilica is faced with marble panels of various shades of green and pink bordered by white.

This Palazzo is the Town Hall of Florence. Overlooking the Piazza della Signoria with its copy of Michelangelo's David statue as well as a gallery of statues.

Views from Ponte Vecchio
Medieval stone bridge (1345) with shops along it, once were occuped by butchers and now a bit more atractive for us, we have jewellery, art and souvenirs shops :)

We went up to Boboli Gardens to have nice views from the city, the other site with great views is Michenangelo Square but the rain was so heavy the next day that we couldnt make pictures...
The beginning of Autumn was very cloudy but leaves were still green on the trees

I could not get better pictures, it was windy and cloudy but we were lucky that we had a day in Florence with no rain, I recomend you to see Florence in May or June instead of Autumn ;)
