Il Duomo

Renowned all over Italy and Europe, Il Duomo, the enormous domed Cathedral in Florence, is as spectacular inside as it is on the outside. Brunelleschi began the design on the dome in the 15th century. It is one of the world's largest Cathedrals and boasts many works in various media by famous artists.

This octagonal church, geometrically designed with green and white marble, is very old and a very popular monument with photographers and filmmakers. Its style is Romanesque with a Byzantine dome, tiled on the interior with mosaics. The most noteworthy of its aspects are the bronze doors designed by Florentine artists such as Ghiberti, Donatello, and Andrea Pisano.

Pitti Palace and Boboli Gardens in Florence

Brunelleschi designed this palace in the 15th century, and it is the ultimate illustration of the Florentine palace building craze. It was built by Pitti to rival the Medici family which later purchased it anyway. It is so expansive that several museums are housed within it. Triobolo designed the fantastic Boboli Gardens as an addition to the Pitti Palace in Florence, Italy for the Medici family.
