... been twice before so instead we strolled around and went around the Orsanmichele building which has some fine statues by Ghiberti and Donatello commissioned by the Guilds in niches all around the outside of the church. The outside is better than the inside. Our mission was to find somewhere for lunch and by the time our friends came out of the Uffizi we had a good table in the Ristorante Paoli on the Via dei Tavolini, a very pretty old restaurant with fresco-ed walls and ...

Road was horrendous - switchback after switchback on narrow roads on the side of a cliff. When we hit Greve - about 20 km north, our gps gave us bad directions and we ended up on the worst road so far about 1 ...

... Ghiberti's more classical version in line with the times was chosen his
competitor's, which was more innovative in its depiction. The two busts in the
room, of a young boy and a gentlewoman, by Desiderio da Settignano are worth
admiring.

Arabic
artwork, ivory, maiolicas (Italian blue and white tiles) are displayed on the
first floor. This is also where you can visit St. Mary Magdalene's Chapel
