From Turin, we traveled through Pisa, Vinci, and Florence on our way to Rome.
We made a side trip to Vinci to see the Leonardo museum. Unfortunately they did not allow any photos, but museum was a good reminder of why documentation matters. Leonardo documented things really well, even stuff other people designed that he thought was important. It was really helpful in understanding the progress in technology and thinking of the era.
The Galileo museum was one of the most interesting place we went in Florence. They had a lot of scientific instruments from the seventeen and eighteen hundreds. Now I know where hollywood get's their inspiration for mad scientist props.
