Immerse in the Renaissance times' Florence with a Private Guide


Love for art and Love for Power During Renaissance. . . this is the paradox of the de Medici.
Let's follow the traces - I will take you to admire the David, tell you many tales full of mystery about the Medici family, show you the Church of Holy Cross where Michelangelo and Galileo are buried.
Then strolling around the City center, admiring the Duomo, the City Hall Signoria, we will cross the Ponte Vecchio and reach the very charming "Oltrarno"( the other side) District where you can breathe a very different atmosphere.

We will sit, relax and enjoy the serene beauty of S. Spirito church and square. Michelangelo used to spend time here when he was 17 years old. His life full of contradictions and desire for beauty will be my thread across the city.
You will paint forever your own picture of an unforgettable Florence! I know my city so well that I will make you feel like a real Florentine.

The amazing fact about this city is that art is so overwhelming and sunsets marvelous.
