-The Basilica of Santa Maria del Fiore, a stunning Cathedral that dominates the florentine skyline with its beautiful dome, built by Brunelleschi and which inspired Michelangelo for Saint Peter’s dome.
-You may also decide to visit the Accedemia museums ( buy your tickets using the link you find down on the information) to visit the David of Michelangelo and many other masterpieces ( visiting the museum implies minor available time for visiting the other sites).
