I had the pleasure of spending a week in Florence recently. What an incredible city! It’s hard to believe that people could have made such amazing art so long ago, and that so much of it has survived intact. Every street, and every square has something stunning to admire. One of the things that struck me most, was the incredibly opulent lifestyle of the Medici and other wealthy families of Florence. The Palazzo Pitti has rooms that will take your breath away, which gets pretty tiring, since there are so many of them!
