My Florence (7): The Town Seen from Above
One of the best places in Florence to take pictures is Piazzale Michelangelo: the view is incredible great, you just need a good camera (a big zoom is a must, this is why I had to set aside my D7000 with its 16-85 mm and take a point-and-shoot camera with a 15x optical zoom). The pictures were shoot in two sessions over two years (pictures 0, 1, 4, 5, and 7 were shot in May 2010, while pictures 2, 3, 6 and 8 were shot in February 2011). Enjoy!
A wonderful Florentine, general picture:
We cannot forget about the well-known bridges; in front of the below picture you can see the Ponte Vecchio:
Below, three pictures with the Duomo (The Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore):
And of course here is Palazzo Vecchio, situated in Piazza della Signoria:
A general view of the great Basilica di Santa Croce (but there are also wonderful pictures with its façade, I will be back to this in another post):
Finally, no one can forget about the Great Synagogue of Florence:
