"The ESSENCE of Florence " .

- MEDIEVAL AND SACRED FLORENCE
- HIDDEN TREASURES
- FOOD AND TRADITION

The most exciting tour of Florence told through story-telling.

The main protagonists of this walk will be:
The Romans, Dante and Beatrice, and the city of today with its millenary tradition: where do I buy the best lampredotto in Florence? What is the lampredotto? And where do I eat if I'm vegan? What if i'm celiac?
The protagonists will also be the FLOWERS, the perfumes, the traditional foods of the city and the best places to taste them, without missing the spirituality that characterizes this magical city.
The first part of a journey into Florence, to breathe its essence and traditions.

It will be an unforgettable experience designed especially for you.
You will discover the meaning of the symbols hidden on the facades of the main monuments, you will walk through the sacred and secret places of the city, you will see works of art that vibrate with light and come to life. You will notice things that you would otherwise lose without this opportunity.
We will take you to secret places that you might not otherwise see!

The main monuments that we will see from the outside and partly inside are:

- The Basilica of Santa Croce
- Piazza della Signoria
- Palazzo Vecchio
- Dante Alighieri's house
- The church of Orsanmichele
- Cathedral
- The baptistery
- Giotto's bell tower

But not only that, and we cannot reveal them all!

Elisabetha was great! Her English is very good and she’s very passionate about what she does. I’ve done a few free tours in different Italian cities and this was by far the best! She told us so many interesting stories and facts about the history of Florence and made the tour a great experience. She also gave us several recommendations for restaurants, gelato etc :-)
