villas for sale
Florence is universally known as the city of art, thanks to its incalculable heritage of works, palaces and monuments which transform the city’s streets into an extraordinary open-air museum. The heart of Florence is Piazza della Signoria, dominated by the towering Palazzo Vecchio and the Galleria degli Uffizi. Just a few steps away, there is the Cathedral, where Brunelleschi’s superb dome is accompanied by Giotto’s bell tower and the Baptistery of St. John, with its celebrated bronze doors.
The river Arno runs through the middle of the city, home to many beautiful luxury villas and estates with great historial value for sale. The most famous of the bridges crossing the river, the Ponte Vecchio, is adorned with jewellery shops housed in small cabins attached to the bridge, a construction technique found nowhere else in the world; the Ponte Vecchio was also the only Florentine bridge to make it through the Second World War without suffering any damage. The left bank of the Arno, or the “Oltrarno”, is an area that still provides a feel, among its centuries-old crafts shops, of the Florence of yesteryear, as described by Marcello Vannucci and Vasco Pratolini.
