| Palazzo Vecchio is depicted in this dome. Once a town
hall, it's now a
museum. Nearby is the Loggia dei Lanzi, where statutes of Roman emperors have stood for hundreds of years.
For that matter Michelangelo's masterpiece David stood
outside the palace for 360 years before it was moved indoors. You may
recall that a crazy man attacked it with a hammer a few years ago.
|The Palazo Vecchio and its belltower. The tower is one of Florence's landmarks. The yellow sign only appears in the globe.||Ponte Vecchio was one of the few bridges not blown up by the retreating Germans in WWII, because it's ancient and lined with shops hundreds of years old. Had they known there were telephone lines under it, they might not have been so generous.|
