History, faith and art!! All here. Really though: what's not to love!!!! It's the only museum in the heart of Firenze!! I enjoy walking here at night. It looks surreally beautiful! Out of this world renaissance beauty!!MichaelAngelo, Paolo!! The bell tower!! That view from up above!!! Museum!! Baptism!! It's magnificent from both inside and out!
Interesting rabbit warren filled with items.
