Your jaw will drop when you see Palazzo Pretorio (1117-1164) and its façade, which boasts numerous emblems and crests in marble and precious stone, along with important examples of Della Robbia ceramics. Moreover, the Palazzo hosts numerous theatrical performances and exhibitions all year long.
Getting back to the famous 14th century Tuscan writer, you should visit the Boccaccio's house museum located right in the street that takes its name from him. Boccaccio is believed to be born here (in 1313) and this house is where he spent most of his life until the end.
Today in the museum, you can view furniture, decorations and explanatory panels that document the master’s life and work. One of the museum’s most noteworthy sections is the library, a treasure trove of illustrated editions of the Decameron.
