Vespatour 2006 Part 9: Vinci and Florence

FirenzeAfter three nights spent in Lucca, the Vespatour continued into the hearth of Tuscany towards Florence, passing by Vinci, where a museum dedicated to Leonardo is located, and then in Anchiano, where I visited the birth place of the tuscan genius.

In the afternoon of august 13 I entered for the first time in the Uffizi Gallery, a place so full of masterpieces, the Birth of Venus by Botticelli above all, that once out I think I felt the symptoms of the Stendhal’s syndrome: “What I’ve seen!” I was repeating to myself while walking in the town center.

A pretty chaotic town in august, it was much better riding my Vespa in the surrounding campaign. 😉

The 52 photos of the ninth gallery of the journey I did to discover the wonders of the Belpaese are online.

Enjoy them! 🙂
