Ah, Florence, the cradle of the Renaissance. Obvious spots for any self-respecting selfie addict include the Duomo, the Uffizi and the Ponte Vecchio (there have been shops on the “Old Bridge” since the 13th century), but be sure to cross the Arno River to the Oltrarno district and head up the hill to Piazzale Michelangelo. From this vast square, the whole of Florence spreads out before you in a spectacular panorama.
Be sure to: Buy tickets before visiting the Uffizi, or else you’ll be in for a very long wait to get in. Ditto the Galleria dell’Accademia (Accademia Gallery), home to Michelangelo’s David. You have been warned.
