TRANSCRIPTION

Firenze – Panorama dalla Via Barbacane [view from Barbican Street].

Chi potrebbe descrivere l’incanto di questa perla della Toscana, circondata da splendidi giardini sparsi sulle ridenti colline? Da questo punto incantevole si puó spingere lo sguardo su tutta la cittá, coi suoi superbi palazzi ed il fiume Arno, conservando di questo panorama un ricordo indimenticabile [Who could describe the charm of this pearl of Tuscany, surrounded by beautiful gardens scattered on the pleasant hillsides? From this point you can take in the enchanting view of the whole city, with its amazing palaces and the Arno River, preserving this landscape as an unforgettable memory].
