The Palazzo Medici Riccardi in Florence

We’ve got palace pics! We toured one of the Medici Palaces & it was amazing! Can you picture living around such opulence? The thought is foreign to most of us Americans. But Italians grow up right next to the finest art in the world. 

This is one of three Medici palaces we visited while in Florence. My favorite spots were the ballroom with its Greek Mythology ceiling. The renaissance not only encouraged religious art, but it also brought back the pagan greek mythology. Other gorgeous spaces include coffered ceilings and gorgeous millwork. 

And don't forget the chapel! These royal or at least very rich families all had chapels in their own homes. This one is filled with frescos!
