On this tour you will discover the history of the Tuscan provincial capital through the painters, sculptors, architects and other artists who over the centuries have left a tangible mark with their works.

With your personal guide you will begin your exploration of Florence with the first of the four great Florentine churches: the Basilica of Santa Maria Novella. A place of worship for Roman Catholics, it was founded in AD 1219 by twelve Dominicans under the guidance of Brother Giovanni da Salerno. The structure has a facade that represents one of the most important works of the Florentine Renaissance but the real treasures can be found inside: the amazing Gothic structure of its nave, and extraordinary paintings and sculptures of the great artists including Giotto, Brunelleschi and Vasari.The visit will continue on to the churches of San Lorenzo, Santa Maria del Fiore and Santa Croce. Santa Croce one of the largest churches celebrated by the Franciscan monks is famous for the numerous tombs of great artists, literary men and scientists. This magnificent church is appropriately called the "Temple of the Italian Glories" and is a true symbol of the city.
These 4 splendid wonders reveal the grand history of this city through the works of painters and architects including Giotto, Michelangelo, Brunelleschi, Botticelli and many others. You will also be fascinated by the historic influence of the great Italian princely families (such as the Medici) who, over the course of three centuries, changed the political, social and above all, the artistic scene of Italy.And finally, your guide, who has accompanied you through the entire visit, will see you off, and you will be free to enjoy the city as you please. Because, as you already know...in Florence, hospitality is a true art!
