Call in to speak with the host
Join Molly Mcllwrath of Context Travel and I as we talk about the wonderful history and secret passages of Palazzo Vecchio.
We'll take you on a virtual tour of the Salon of the 500, the works of Vasari, the Duke of Athens stairwell, the trusses of Vasari, two private rooms with hidden doorways, and the overlooked little doorway that leads to a safe escape from inside the Palazzo to the streets of Florence.
We dive into Dante too talking about his influence on Florence and the literary world and how Florence was quite a different place in his day.
It's good to talk.
