About the Tour

Ciao! I propose another guided tour of Florence. We will of course discover the history and also some of the art of Florence, but this will only be an overview as we will focus on the anecdotes, legends and curiosities of this city. We will start from Piazza Santissima Annunziata where we will see how the first civil orphanage unrelated to the church was born and we will also see how a famous painter did in spite of the monks of the monastery. We will move to St. Mark's Square, where Cosimo the Elder de Medici spent a fortune, a little because in good faith a little because he was deceived. There will also be a visit to the Cathedral Square, which hides many legends, a bit of the fruit of the imagination of the Florentines of the past, but still very cheerful and interesting. If we go to the church, which was a barn, one day we will see how Donatello helped a friend save his reputation in exchange for a simple dinner. We will see the battered statues in Piazza della Signoria. We then moved to Pontevecchio, where centuries ago the Florentines repaid the Pisans for an injustice that we will have seen in the cathedral.

Meeting point: Open in Google Maps

How to find me: I will be next to the statue in the middle of Santissima Annunziata square
