The Bridges of Florence

The City of Florence is divided in two by the river Arno, but its charming bridges give it a harmonious sense of continuity between the two sides. All of Florence’s bridges share centuries of history. The oldest and most famous is certainly Ponte Vecchio, mentioned by author Dan Brown in his novel Inferno. However, the other bridges are also important and noteworthy, given their stories, particularities, and that they have become real monuments.

The Basilica of San Lorenzo

The Basilica of San Lorenzo (Basilica of St Lawrence), located in the centre town piazza of the same name, is one of the oldest churches in Florence. Its thousand-year history is tied to the Florentine Christian community. It is also closely connected to the triumphant rise to power of the Medici dynasty, whom author Dan Brown mentions in his latest novel Inferno, and who chose San Lorenzo as its family church.

Shooting of the Movie Inferno in Florence

From May 4 until May 18, 2015, the City of Florence hosted the filming of the movie Inferno (we don’t know whether the title of the film has actually been decided). The set of Inferno, the film version of Dan Brown’s latest bestseller of the same name, has been moved from Venice to Florence. After a few days of shooting in the lagoon, the American crew moved operations to the Tuscan town.
