After experiencing the last Florentine Weekend, I knew I would be returning for the 2016 trip. This was the view out of my hotel window in 2014. I’m a little afraid I won’t be able to leave this wonderful city again!
The last Weekend was full of unforgettable places, people and events. As an old art historian and museum professional, I particularly enjoyed seeing how the city’s outstanding art and architecture are being conserved for future generations. I particularly liked that I could watch as conservators worked their magic on these large panels in the Cathedral of Santa Maria Del Fiore in the Piazza del Duomo.
