Florence is simply beautiful, there is some much to do and see. But it is also crowded with tourists which can be overwhelming at times. I spent a couple of days just walking around this old city to feast my eyes on everything it has to offer. Below are a few photographs I took there:
Morning light as seen from my hotel room.
Adorable, old, made from brass apartment doorbell buttons.
Electeric car or as its known: Risciò Elettrico Pasquali. Just loved the yellow against the walls of the old building. 
Motobikes nicely lined-up on the street. You see a lot of them park like this on the streets of Florence. 
Local street musician, it made me stop and listen to his music. 
Details and patterns everywhere you turn.

The octagonal baptistery stands in both the Piazza del Duomo and the Piazza San Giovanni, across from Florence Cathedral and the Campanile di Giotto.
The Florence Baptistery, also known as the Baptistery of Saint John. 
There are a lot street artist in the city. They have a large variety of interesting paintings, showing the city from many angles in a very creative ways. 
Designed by Arnolfo di Cambio at the end of the 13th century, the Cathedral's trademark dome is now the symbol of Florence.

Narrow streets of Florence, always fun to explore.
Dante’s House Museum as seen here, it is responsible for spreading knowledge of the life and works of Dante and the medieval Florence he lived in. Well-worth a visit inside if you have a chance. 
Beautiful street scene at the Piazza San Matino in Florence.

The Fountain of Neptune in Florence, Italy, (Fontana del Nettuno) is situated in the Piazza della Signoria (Signoria square), in front of the Palazzo Vecchio. The fountain was commissioned by Cosimo I de' Medici in 1559 to celebrate the marriage of Francesco de' Medici I to Grand Duchess Joanna of Austria. It's a really beautiful piece of art. 
The Ratto di Polissena (The Rape of Polyxena) is a sculpture by Pio Fedi, sculpted between 1855 and 1865. The subject of the sculpture is Polissena, Priam's youngest daughter, kidnapped by Neoptolemus to be sacrificed in anticipation of the departure of the Greek ships for the return from the Trojan War.
