    This is one of those places like the Eiffel Tower ot Empire State Building that, while touristy, you have to check out if you are in Florence. Aside from being touristy, it actually is quite beautiful and is the heart and center of Florence, which is a beautiful walking city.

How many Churches ...

There are some medieval items up on display in what was touted as the writer's former home. There's a bed and a slew of artifacts. There are some posters explaining the 9 circles of hell, purgatory, ...
