The city of Florence reveals itself little by little. Our artistic itineraries offer walks suited to every age and every interest.
This itinerary is undertaken on foot, with there being no entries to museums or historical buildings, so as to enjoy the city in a more relaxed manner with the curiosity and desire for knowledge that permits a more heartfelt exploration of Florence.
As an introduction to the city, we recommend one of the most-requested artistic itineraries, commencing from Piazza Santa Maria Novella, with its Renaissance façade designed by Leon Battista Alberti, delimiting a large space in which chariot races were held during the Medici era. We continue on, passing by the typical medieval streets of Florence, where you can still see artisans at work and admire the mansions of the noble Florentine families.
We reach the bustling Piazza Duomo, characterised by the
green and white colours of the marble of the Romanesque
baptistery and the imposing cathedral, the construction of
which commenced at the end of the 13th century.
Often stopping in the shadow of Giotto’s Bell Tower are the horse-drawn carriages, ready to transport tourists who want to discover Florence in this way.
The last stop on this artistic itinerary
is Piazza della Signoria, which has long been regarded as
the political hub of the city of Florence,
with the Palazzo Vecchio still the seat of the Municipality
In the summer, the piazza bustles with tourists, often sitting to enjoy a nice coffee in one of the various outdoor cafés lining the square.
We have many other suggestions and artistic itineraries to introduce you to the city of Florence, on an exploration of places rich in culture and ancient history, far from the crowds.
We cross the Arno river, delighting in a spectacular view of the Ponte Vecchio, to reach the popular Santo Spirito district, where our route takes us on a discovery of some of the most important churches of Florence, such as that of Santo Spirito, once frequented by a young Michelangelo for a very explicit reason. Along this artistic journey, we will enter into a selection of artisan workshops, where the methods and instruments used have remained unchanged since the Renaissance.
This journey on foot includes entering into certain religious monuments which, not uncommonly in Florence, safeguard the works of famous artists from Giotto to Michelangelo. We will pass by popular piazzas, fruit and vegetable markets and historical/artistic sites, ensuring there is time to stop to savour your surroundings. We will enter ancient goldsmith workshops, where you can admire the work of master engravers focused on the creation of unique pieces, with the possibility to buy your very own piece of jewellery.
