Where to begin – is there any city more beautiful or more steeped in artistic endeavour?

I would like to explore the churches, palaces, museums, piazzas, monuments and streets of this wonderful place. Eventually, perhaps, I will also examine that which has been described as genius and civil ferocity, intimately meshed – its politics and history.

I will visit such places as the beautiful Boboli Gardens with the magical Grotto of Buontalenti, follow Vasari’s Corridor in both direction and conception, and admire the work of fantastic characters, such as master goldsmith, sculptor, musician, story teller and warrior, Benvenuto Cellini.
