A delight, seek this out. A quiet little museum containing three floors of Marino Marini's work sculpture, drawings and paintings. The museum is modern, light and works perfectly. A real joy.

If, as, and when you get tired of Donatello, Massaccio, Botticelli, Michelangelo, etc., etc., consider taking a break and seeing some of the most delightful art of the 20th century, at the Marino Marini Museum.

Florentia, as it was called by Latins, is permeated by
an eternal beauty spread in all corners of the city.
The historic center is characterized by the immensity
of the Duomo, able to transport tourists into the
brightest age of Florence: the Renaissance. Who does
not know the Brunelleschi Dome, San Giovanni
Baptistery and the Giotto’s Campanile? Everything is
enclosed here and it would be easy to imagine the city
