Quotes and Sayings about Florence

Florence, the cradle of the Renaissance, a city full of art and culture that touches my heart. Amidst magnificent palazzi and winding alleys, I feel the magic of bygone times. The Uffizi, the Cathedral, and the Ponte Vecchio narrate tales of immeasurable heritage. The beauty of your artworks and the passion of your inhabitants keep drawing me back into your enchantment. Florence, you are an unforgettable inspiration.

If Italy were Mona Lisa then Florence would be her smile.
You will begin to wonder that human daring ever achieved anything so magnificent.
John Ruskin (Mornings in Florence)
This is the fairest picture on our planet, the most enchanting to look upon, the most satisfying to the eye and the spirit. To see the sun sink down, drowned on his pink and purple and golden floods, and overwhelm Florence with tides of color that make all the sharp lines dim and faint and turn the solid city to a city of dreams, is a sight to stir the coldest nature, and make a sympathetic one drunk with ecstasy.
Mark Twain (Autobiography)
Under the shadow of a stately Pile,
The dome of Florence, pensive and alone,
Nor giving heed to aught that passed the while,
I stood, and gazed upon a marble stone,
The laurelled Dante's favourite seat. A throne,
Among the four old bridges that span the river, the Ponte Vecchio, that bridge which is covered with the shops of jewelers and goldsmiths, is a most enchanting feature in the scene. The space of one house, in the center, being left open, the view beyond, is shown as in a frame; and that precious glimpse of sky, and water, and rich buildings, shining so quietly among the huddled roofs and gables on the bridge, is exquisite.
If you don't fall in love with me, at least you will fall in love with Florence.
