Living in Florence (Shoe Making) 15.4.1 : Assistant Report 22

The Bargello is one of my favorite museums in Florence. It is a sculpture and artifact museum that is located in the old jail. It is a beautiful building! This is a photo of the main courtyard.

Part of the loggia sculpture area in the Bargello. It is open air.

More sculptures!

A lovely green and wooded area along the Arno river. If you go only a few minutes outside the city center there are lovely parks and green spaces.

Whimsical Florentine street art!
