Florence, Italy is a magical city. There is something about the pace of life and attitude of the inhabitants here that convince you that they know something the rest of us don't.
Once you get away from the tourist-y attractions and find yourself wandering the stone streets where the people of Florence actually live, there is an unmistakable charm that makes you forget you are actually in a city. Instead, as you eat one unbelievable meal after another and open up another bottle of incredible local wine, you feel like you are in a small intimate town.
This city holds a special place in my heart, so on this most recent trip back, I knew I had to complete an ultra-high resolution VAST photo of the Florence city skyline to try and capture the extraordinary detail and beauty that this city has to offer.
From the Piazzale Michelangelo on the south side of the river, you get a sweeping view of the city, and are able to see in incredible high resolution detail all of the famous locations and attractions. This includes the Basilica of Santa Croce all the way on the right, the Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore with its beautiful red-tiled dome (the "duomo"), and even Ponte Vecchio, the famous bridge filled with high-end shops and wonderful views of both sides of the embankments of the Arno river.
Captured right as the sun was beginning to set on a windy evening in May, and with some dramatic clouds to create a bit of interest in the sky, this ultra-high resolution VAST photo brings into vivid detail all of the wonderful elements that make Florence such an incredible city to visit. I am already planning my next trip to return here.
This 917-megapixel VAST photo is one of the highest definition photographs ever created. It has a resolution equivalent to 442 HDTVs.

Every VAST Print has two certificates of authenticity hand-signed by the artist and the printmaker: one affixed to the print and one standalone. Additionally, each print is assigned a unique serial number via a permanent hologram seal and recorded in our registry. Its provenance is tracked and verified using state-of-the-art digital blockchain encryption technology.
VAST Displays are ready-to-hang works of art that contain a VAST Print sealed between flame-polished acrylic glass and an aluminum backing. A hidden brace on the back causes the display to gracefully "float" off the wall for a sleek, modern frameless look that complements nearly any decor style. Learn more
