Florence's galleries are renownwed for housing some of the world's greatest and most precious works of art, including sculptures by Donatello and Michelangelo and paintings by Titian, Botticelli and Leonardo da Vinci. You'll also see magnificent architecture like the cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore, the Medici Chapel, and the Palazzo Vecchio that dominates the Piazza della Signoria.
