Renaissance- In a nutshell

I have enjoyed this rapid trip through the treasures of the Renaissance for several reasons, the main one being that I have recently returned from a short visit to Florence. This book has put all that I saw and experienced in a clear and understandable sequence. It explains so much and in a “nutshell” format, that I would recommend anyone to listen carefully and absorb the information. It will certainly heighten the enjoyment of your Renaissance experience.
