Itinerary

This 3-hour guided tour will unravel the mysteries of the Roman Florentia hidden by fascinating medieval and modern buildings. As an expert archaeologist-guide, I will show you around the streets and squares of the city center focusing on the traces of Florence's hidden past and delighting you with entertaining anecdotes. I will make full use of 3D reconstruction images of roman structures taken from published literature to further explain the interpretations of archaeological evidence.

The last part of the tour is dedicated to the National Archaeological Museum of Florence, which houses one of the most important collections for the study of the Etruscan civilization. It also has a vast collection of Greek ceramics as well as the collection of Egyptian antiquities, the second largest one in Italy after the Egyptian Museum of Turin.

A Recent Review of this tour

Giovanna is a practicing archaeologist whose enthusiasm for the subject of this tour was matched by her knowledge. She also pointed out things of interest from other eras as we toured around central Florence, and happily answered all questions. I highly recommend both her and this tour.
