Itinerary:Boboli's Garden on the back of Pitti Palace based on a desing by Niccolò Tribolo began to take shape in 1549 when the Medici family acquired the palace but the work continued until 1650; it is a typical Italian garden, less formal than French but still spectacular placed on a hill with a view of the town.
Signoria Square has been the central point of the political life through the centuries with Palazzo Vecchio, the fortress like city hall, the huge Fountain of Neptune by Ammannati and all the statues like Michelangelos David and the ones in the Loggia dei Lanzi makes it like a sort of an outdoor gallery.
Ponte Vecchio was built in XIV century to replace an earlier bridge destroyed by flood and housed butchers, grocers and other merchants before Ferdinando I decided to threw out butchers and the others merchants to install goldsmiths and jewelers who are still there.
Repubblica Square marks the site of the ancient forum, the core of the original Roman settlement and, now home of Florence most fashionable and expensive cafés like Paszkowsky and still the center of the life in the town.
Orsanmichele has a long story: originally a grain market became a church at the end of XIV century, after the arcades were closed and two additional stories added; the statues on the exterior represent the work of many Renaissance artists.
S. Trinita Bridge was built in its elegant curves by Ammannati in XVI century, probably using Michelangelos drawings, but was rebuilt in 1952, using again the original stones, after being destroyed during second world war.
