1/43.- Welcome to
Welcome to Florence (Firenze, in Italian).
Florence, Tuscany, is the most beautiful city in the most
beautiful region in Italy --one of the most beautiful
countries in the world. That makes of Florence (probably)
the most beautiful city on earth. If you come with me I
will try to show all the splendor of this city.
The list of artists associated with this city is
endless: Giotto, Dante, Brunelleschi, Donatello, Fra
Angelico, Botticelli, Fra F. Lippi, Leonardo da Vinci,
Michelangelo, Raphael, just to mention a few. Another
name that has made this city famous is Stendhal. Have you
ever heard about the "Stendhal Syndrome"?
We are now in front of a copy of
Michelangelos David. This is the most famous
sculpture of all times. This copy is in front of the
'Palazzo Vecchio', to see the real one you will have to
visit the 'Galleria dellAccademia'. But now
well visit The Duomo --the most wonderful Cathedral
I have ever seen ...
