“Excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2012 via mobile

I was so excited by the amount of statues in the plaza. The most famous one is the rape of Sabine women. I suggest that you do not go the restaurant near this place.

“Hall of fame of Medici family - Ruler family of Florence”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2012 via mobile

Your florence trip would not be completed without knowing the insight of Medici family by paying tribute for a visit of Palazzzo Vecchio. This family has been powerful and influencial in florence and Italy for economy, religion, and art. This family has a stong connection with legendaey Leonardo and Michelangelo. You will also enjoy medieval and novel story of all god and saints.
