We loved this palace of the Medici family. The architecture of the building speaks to a time in history when 1 family had great wealth.

Every visitor coming to Florence for the first time
will immediately identify with Uffizi. As in past
times, passing through Via dei Calzaiuoli, you can

dreams of. In just a few steps, visitors can
