We enjoyed the interesting artefacts from all over the world. Only disappointment was that over half of the artefacts had no english labels. We had to guess what they were with our minimum italian. We liked the musical instruments from all over the world.

If you are handicapped, be sure the elevator is working before purchasing tickets to this museum. The stairway is long and steep. Fortunately, for me, they finally got the elevator working as I could not climb the steps to the first level. Otherwise, the museum...More

This museum displays a small, but interesting range of ethnographic items from around the world, mostly from earlier native cultures, which have either disappeared or "modernised". It is worth spending a few Euros to see it, if you are interested in ethnographic art and world...More

Florentia, as it was called by Latins, is permeated by
an eternal beauty spread in all corners of the city.
The historic center is characterized by the immensity
of the Duomo, able to transport tourists into the
brightest age of Florence: the Renaissance. Who does
not know the Brunelleschi Dome, San Giovanni
Baptistery and the Giotto’s Campanile? Everything is
enclosed here and it would be easy to imagine the city
