I have been fortunate enough to visit Florence many times. Because of my interest in the decorative arts of Italy, the Davanzati was at the top of my list of places to visit. Every summer I was in Florence the museum was closed for continuing...More

This medieval palace dating back to the 14th century was once home to a wealthy banker, it is very well preserved, now housing a museum , highly recommended, not your normal tourist attraction

Pretend for a moment that you stepped back in time to the Italian Renaissance, and the Davanzati Palace was home. The sun fills the inner courtyard as you climb to the second floor. Here you can admire your main room to entertain with the hand...More

This is a really interesting 14th century house, furnished and decorated as it was in the renaissance. Many of the rooms have original frescoes on the walls, and you can get a really good idea of what life was like here in the 14th and...More

Florentia, as it was called by Latins, is permeated by
an eternal beauty spread in all corners of the city.
The historic center is characterized by the immensity
of the Duomo, able to transport tourists into the
brightest age of Florence: the Renaissance. Who does
not know the Brunelleschi Dome, San Giovanni
Baptistery and the Giotto’s Campanile? Everything is
enclosed here and it would be easy to imagine the city

I don't think it's necessary. You have to show up on time though, at the staircase leading to the upper floor
