I am a great storyteller and Florence has a great deal of history & so many stories to reveal. Murders and mysteries, ghosts. Discover the fierce jealousy between Michelangelo and Leonardo.
Learning is great fun! Hunt out symbols and coats of arms on buildings whilst hearing tales from the past.
Let's visit the Davanzati Palace, home of a textile merchant & see what life was really like in the 1400s.
