This is a country I have not been too yet Jose although I hope to one day. The buildings behind the statues in the first picture looks just as old. What wonderful history there must be in these streets.

Joan, the building in the background of the first picture is the Palazzo Vecchio (Old Palace) built in 1322.

I think it says a lot about a city when said city commissions such pieces for public places...so beautiful.

I do not remember this statue when I visited Florence. There is so much art there, so many paintings, so much beautiful architecture that it is like art overkill, don’t you think? It is hard to absorb it all.

Four years ago I led a group of 16 family and friends on a two week tour of Italy. Our first stop was Florence. After we checked in to our hotel after our three flights including the trans-Atlantic overnight flight, the first thing we did is walk from our hotel to the loggia and piazza shown in your post. Thank you for bringing back the memories.
