The Beauties of FlorenceMapping Francesco Bocchi's 1596 Bellezze di Firenze
You can tour along with a seventeenth-century visitor to Florence along the four different “walks” Bocchi prescribes, much as you can do in modern Florence using the Hidden Florence app. Click on the various sites to see what Bocchi describes, and how he directed visitors to experience the Beauties of Florence.
