Just a week. Day trip to Florence. Three days of business and four days vacation.
I just got back from Rome and Florence, both wonderful visits. I was struck by the affordability of the Zegna boutique. Shirts easily 50% off versus US stores. I picked up two Trofeo shirts that were beautiful and I'm not normally a Zegna guy. They seem to have stepped up their game. Customer service was five star.

Great system. Been looking at the new Devialet speakers.
I would try two routes for the Revels which are superb speakers. 1. Solid state - Pass Labs 2. Vacuum Tube - Audio Research McIntosh hold their value and are well made but the sound tends to be a bit on the warm side and lack some resolution. With the Salon2s you should really hear the resolution they are capable of.
Look at the VPI Scout series. You should be able to find new or B stock in that range with a small discount.
Those are lovely.
