Following Robert Langdon's Footprints in Florence

"Seek and ye shall find." ... I am (if I may say) a big fan of Robert Langdon, and I'm excited about his upcoming movie from Dan Brown's latest book, Inferno. This book has brought me to Florence. And this is my story, following the path of Inferno.

Florence was once a walled city, its primary entrance the stone gateway of the Porta Romana.
