Centro Storico di Firenze

Florence's historic center is home to the Duomo and the Uffizi

Florence's centro storico (historic center) has at its very core two focal points, a religious one around the cathedral at Piazza San Giovanni/Piazza del Duomoand a civic one several blocks to the south around the irregularly shaped Piazza della Signoria.

The latter is a lively, statue-studded square lined with cafés and home to the Gothically imposing, fortress-like Palazzo Vecchio, off which stretches the "U" of the Uffizi Galleries, Florence's great art museum.

The wide, pedestrian-choked promenade Via Calzaiuoli runs north-south to connect these two centers, and between them lies a thicket of cobblestone streets that make up the medieval heart of Florence.

West of this core is Florence's main shopping district, centered on Via Romathe cafe-lined 19th-century Piazza della Repubblica, and Via de' Tornabuoni, the main artery of Florence's high fashion industry.

Via Roma actually changes names as it moves south, becoming Via Calimala, then Via Por Santa Maria. You may not notice it at first as you continue walking south up a gentle slope, but at the end of Via Por Santa Maria you actually step onto a bridge, the famous Ponte Vecchio, off either side of which hang a phalanx of gold- and silversmith shops that makes it seem like the street just continues. At small piazza in the bridge's center you can look up and down the Arno River.

* You can use this formula for all Italian ten-place numbers—so 31 is trent'uno, 32 is trenta due, 33 is trenta tre, etc. Note that—like uno (one), otto (eight) also starts with a vowel—all "-8" numbers are also abbreviated (vent'otto, trent'otto, etc.).
