... got to the other side, the rain had stopped. We took Bus #12 up to Piazzale Michelangelo. It was a 20 minute bus ride, but we really enjoyed seeing a different area of Florence. There were many villas and gardens along the ride. You also pass by the backside of the Boboli gardens.

certainly looked like it belonged to a very wealthy family. Parts of
it are even still used today to hold official ceremonies of the
Florentine government. The Palazzo even contains the famous
Procession of the Magi fresco, which we unfortuantely could not take
pictures of, but you should definitely google.
