Series Walking Around Florence

Florence is a charming town, kernel of the Rennaissance, and blessed with the greener end of the Mediterranean climate spectrum.

Sculpture of the Rape of the Sabine Women


While Florence has its modern areas, it seems heavily steeped in past glories and rich with distinct sculpture and architecture.

A Best-Of Tour

The most was made of our few days in town. On the schedule was a day of riding bikes in Tuscany, strolling around in Boboli Gardens and Pitti Palace and a bit of milling around town a bit to see the sights you see on this page.

In the Galleria dell'Academia the original statue of David still presides, but I cannot find the negatives for those images. However, a copy of Michelangelo's master work posing outside the Palazzo Vecchio on the left here. On the right of the photo is the corridor of the Piazzale degli Uffizi which leads to the River Arno. These and other famous scenes were artistically shot locations in Ridley Scott's Hannibal.

Downtown Florence

All these buildings are in the classic downtown area of Florence. The Cathedral Santa Maria del Fiore, Palazzo Vecchio in Piazza della Signoria, and Santa Maria Novella, all in a radius around Piazza della Republica.

This iguana lives in a tree in a house across from my sister’s casa in Sayulita. The owner of the house, a pleasant Mexican gentleman, explained in Spanish that every day the lizard saddles along the wall from the tree to this decorative courtyard gateway and peers out this little window.
