"A less crowded museum is the..." Florence Favorite Tip by Barbara2

Florence General: 471 reviews and 520 photos


Favorite thing: A less crowded museum is the Florence Science Museum. It has very interesting exhibits on display. One is this Armillary, used to calculate the positions of the planets in Ptolemy's day. I'd seen pictures of this apparatus in my science books but was absolutely floored by the actual size. It looked so small in the textbook.

Review Helpfulness: 1.5 out of 5 stars
