You admire an amazing stairs design by Michelangelo to access at the ancient library (an unkow jewel)
One of my favourite spots in Florence. The project was made by Michelangelo. I love the beautiful cloister, the famous staircase on 1sr floor when entering the library, the library room + manuscripts.
The Laurentian Library (Biblioteca Medicea Laurenziana) is a historical library in Florence, Italy, containing a repository of more than 11,000 manuscripts and 4,500 early printed books.
“Wonderful library! Located behind Piazza San Marco, easy to reach also from the smn station. I really recommend it”
“"Art and nature" could be the motto of this extraordinary museum dedicated to semi-precious stone inlays, where artistic talent competes only with the splendour of the materials employed. It was the passion of the Medici for this precious form of art that led Grand Duke Ferdinando I de'Medici to establish in 1588 a court laboratory specialised in semi-precious mosaics and inlays. This grand ducal institution, which remained active for down three centuries, was the core of the Opificio delle Pietre Dure, established at the end of the 19th century, which still has its seat in the original location chosen in 1798 for the laboratories formerly housed in the Uffizi.”
“Burgers and beer... they have a nice selection of craft beers and some of the best burgers in Florence!”
“The genius Leonardo da Vinci is the protagonist of the Leonardo da Vinci Museum, an interesting, small museum located in the center of Florence, a few steps from the Duomo. The museum houses reconstructions of various civil, military and flight engineering projects developed by the Genius of the Renaissance, some of which were found in the famous Leonardo Codes. Several machines present in the museum itinerary are interactive and this is certainly the most fun aspect for children, even children who will be able to directly experience the functioning of reproductions. Next to each machine you will find a detailed description that will allow you to understand its use and possibly even explain it to your children (or it will be the other way around)!!.”
