Intelligently done

A very informative app giving in-depth information on a limited number of sites. This is useful not just for the visitor to Florence but, even more so, for the student of the Renaissance, sitting in his or her armchair, who wants to learn more about the culture and day-to-day life in the greatest citiy of the Quattrocento. Entertaining, visually interesting and instructive, in equal measures. Well done!
