Florence is perhaps Europe's most iconic and beguiling city. Cradle of the Renaissance, home to the infamous Medicis and to such legendary figures as Michelangelo, Galileo, Dante, da Vinci and Machiavelli, Florence has for centuries captured the imaginations of generations of travellers, writers and artists. In this rich and revealing book, R. W. B. Lewis explores the wonders of this small city in Tuscany. Offering a heady mix of history, culture, anecdote, personal reflection and travel, he takes a fresh look at Florence's most enduring landmarks and illuminates the city's wide-ranging historical and artistic legacy from the Middle Ages to the present day. With passion and knowledge, Lewis has produced a beautiful and informative portrait of the city. It is an essential reading for all those who have fallen under the spell of Florence.
