To get acquainted with the historic center we begin walking from Piazza della Santissima Annunziata,
which features a beautiful church and the Spedale degli Innocenti, the first orphanage in Europe. The piazza was also used in the filming of the opening sequence of 'A Room with a View'. We can see the Duomo from here, and it is our next stop. The most known icon of Florence, the immensity and beauty of this cathedral is overwhelming. But there is more! The last stop is Piazza Signoria, the political center of the city, featuring Palazzo Vecchio (city hall)
and the Loggia dei Lanzi...and of course David!
