Centro Storico

Hotels near Centro Storico, Florence, Italy .

The Centro Storico, Florence, Italy is a living monument to past glories. There is little wonder that the area is known as the Historical Center. This part of Florence is situated between Piazza San Marco, Piazza Santa Maria Novella, Santa Croce, and Santo Spirito. The renaissance architecture recognized by tourists, is noted to be influenced by the famed Medici Family in the 15th and 16th centuries.

Along with touring museums around town by bus or foot, visitors may stop into the many up-scale elegant shops. Clearly though, the historical sites are the big draw. The work of great masters such as Giotto, Brunelleschi, Botticelli and Michelangelo are exhibited in the legacies of the 13th century cathedral (Santa Maria del Fiore),the Church of Santa Croce, the Uffizi and the Pitti Palace. The Oltrarno quarter of Florence, is located just south of the River Arno. It contains only a portion of the historic center which includes the church Santo Spirito di Firenze, Belvedere, and Piazzale Michelangelo. The many restaurants and cafes along with the artisan workshops are said to be keeping history alive by maintaining century-old traditions.

The northern part of the historic center contains a series of eye catching six lane boulevards, inspired by the similar Parisian undertakings. These boulevards follow the outline of the ancient walls of Florence, which were demolished in 1865. The viali di Circonvallazione is the main arterial street for the traffic from west to east.
