Florence, the queen of art cities, is an absolute must in the series Meraviglie d'Italia.
This is a virtual visit to the museum city that combines some of the most extraordinary masterpieces of Renaissance architecture and painting. The book follows a topographical itinerary, which leads the reader from Piazza del Duomo and Palazzo Vecchio into the Santa Croce area and north towards San Marco and the other side of Santa Maria Novella, then across the River Arno towards Palazo Pitti and its beautiful gardens. It presents the exteriors and interiors of all the buildings, focusing on the main works of art. Special attention is paid to the fresco cycles. The final chapter is devoted to small museums that are often passed over by tourists, but which contain real masterpieces.
