What can I tell you about Florence that hasn’t already been said, seen, written, sung…?
Florence, you have to feel it.
Its streets, its fantastic monuments, its incomparable squares and its notorious characters.
The Florence of small and dark streets, very high towers, shops and taverns that are not very recommendable (I’m kidding!)
Suddenly we find ourselves in the Middle Ages where there were few rules and only the strongest (and richest!) had it won.
The cradle of the Renaissance, “where it all began”, where artists such as Donatello, Michelangelo, Leonardo and Raphael (no, not the T.M. Ninja Turtles) found fertile ground to nourish all their talents from painting, sculpture, poetry, etc.
Political and intellectual figures who have marked an era and led the destiny not only of a city but of the whole world:
Lorenzo de’ Medici aka “the Magnificent”, Niccolò Macchiavelli, Amerigo Vespucci, Giovanni da Verrazzano, Girolamo Savonarola, Giotto, Giovanni Boccaccio…
… and so on and so forth.
And then he, the father of the Italian language, Dante Alighieri who in 2021 celebrates 700 years (always looking good)!
A wonderful city, a real labyrinth where getting lost becomes simple. Let me guide you.
