Tour description

What is the Renaissance?
Florence is known as the city where the Renaissance began, but what is this Renaissance? Is it history? Is it art? Is it politics? Is it religion?

The Renaissance is all this and we will discover it by walking in the places that most represent this historical era.
We will see how the world changed after the Middle Ages through the architecture and sculptures of Florence, but also through the civic and religious concepts expressed by the masterpieces of world famous artists such as Donatello, Michelangelo and Brunelleschi.

If you want to add value to your trip to Florence this is the experience for you, and I will be happy to accompany you!

Vincenzo was an excellent guide!! We were thoroughly impressed by his extensive knowledge of the Renaissance and how it connected to the history of Florence! His itinerary was beautifully orchestrated and our tour with him gave us a wonderful framework to begin our visit to Florence. Any questions we asked were clearly answered and thoughtfully elaborated upon beyond what we imagined. We would highly recommend taking the tour “Exploring the Renaissance” with Vincenzo!!
