- Trivia - Backstories - Did-you-knows - Visually Rich: over 450 images! This book has no restaurants or bars, no metro schedules or 3-days-in-Florence plans. It has what the others lack: the backstories of those famous guys from Florence that made the city look the way it does: Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci, Botticelli, Donatello, Dante, Machiavelli, Raphael, Galileo, the Medici family, and many more. (Note: Did you know that most of these guys actually knew each other?!?) Think: People Magazine of the Renaissance. FLORENCE Gems & Giants is the PERFECT Companion to your favorite Florence City Guidebook.
