The Palazzo Pitti's Silver Museum houses a vast collection of jewelled reliquaries, vases made of solid amethyst and other opulent items from those masters of conspicuous consumption, the aristoi of Florentine ages past.
Without doubt, a stroll in amongst the collections of this not-so-little museum, repository of the treasures of the Florentine Renaissance aristocracy, will expand your financial horizons. Feel the breath of Mammon down your neck, mingled with the air of incredible and refined material beauty, and wonder at the glories of a bygone age, when men were men, women were women and some people really knew what to do with their surplus money...

Please visit the museum's website for details on opening hours, as they vary throughout the year.
