  • Travel back in time to 1350! This reminded me of the wondeful Isabella Stuart Gardner museum in Boston, bit it is real! One really gets a sense of how the Davanzati, bankers for the Popes at Avignon, lived then.
  • Great house museum, worth a trip off the main streets. How you understand the history of Florence.
