First glimpses of Florence

A travel blog entry by mitchdee07


... artists from the 16th-century, Pontormo and Rosso Fiorentino. The exhibition was quite impressive, spanning many rooms on the 2nd-floor of this magnificent palazzo.

As we exited the east side of the palazzo, there was a group of musicians and a female vocalist performing ragtime music popular during the Roaring Twenties. We joined a small crowd in the piazza that had gathered to listen, but in a short while decided to call it a ...
