Top 5 / Europe

If you’re looking for a photo opportunity, Florence is generally the spot to be. Narrow it down a bit further with this list of best photo-op spots in the city.


The Cattedrale di Santa Maria del Fiore

Also known as The Duomo, the Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore is one of the most iconic stops in Florence. It’s the third-largest church in the world and boasts a red brick dome and incredibly ornate detailing all along its exterior. Take a closer look and read the story the chiseled images are trying to tell around every corner.


Piazza Michelangelo

The breathtaking panoramic views from the Piazzale Michelangelo, or Piazza, may be difficult to beat. It’s hard to tell what the main focal point should be, the replica of Michelangelo’s “David” statue, the museum, the Gardens of Irsis or the sweeping views of the city below.


Palazzo Vecchio 

Make your way to Florence’s town hall, the Palazzo Vecchio. You’ll be able to get a great picture of the Piazza della Signoria below, with yet another copy of Michelangelo’s “David” statue.


Ponte Alla Carraia

Really any bridge over the River Arno would suffice, but the Ponte alla Carraia is a bit special. The five-arched bridge straddles the water, offering a beautiful view of the city.


Mercato del Porcellino

The 16th-century Mercato del Porcellino was once a place to buy luxury goods and statues and still boasts its grand allure from Roman times. The marketplace offers a wide variety of goods, along with impressive statues and a famous fountain. Take your pick.

Leave Troublesome Rideshare Worries Behind

We can see it now and remember when it happened to us: Watching as the black car icon loops around and around, seemingly endlessly, and our wait time on the rideshare app continually changes.
