Every Day Life in Renaissance Florence

What was it like to walk the streets, buy food in the market, go to church, live in your townhouse, cook in the kitchen, go to the country, go to school. The best place to see a Renaissance palace as it was in the Renaissance is to visit the Palazzo Davanzati which we will do this week.
