We do not know by which way Stensen travelled from Holland to Florence. He may have arrived at the town on the Arno at the turn of the year 1674/16751 and, as educator of the Crown Prince, may have been attributed well-furnished lodging in the Palazzo Pitti.2 Teaching soon began, since Stensen excuses himself to Viviani for not having visited him yet and he adds: “I have the instruction to begin tomorrow at 18 o’clock my service to his Serene Highness, the Prince. Wish me all the best and pray for me so that I accomplish what God has called me for in this position.”3
