End point: Church of Santa Croce
We will walk from Santa Maria Novella through small streets and lanes that lead to imposing palaces with a full immersion in history, and then we will reach the square where the Cathedral is located, the so-called “Duomo”. This is the spiritual heart of the city, with the Dome that is admired worldwide, built thanks to the Florentine genius of architecture, Filippo Brunelleschi.
Between masterpieces and daily life in the quarter of Dante, we will reach the wonderful Palazzo Vecchio that overlooks Piazza della Signoria, the political and artistic hearth, with the Fountain of Neptune, the replica of Michelangelo’s David and other statues related to Florence’s glorious past.
We will continue towards the Santa Croce neighbourhood. The impressive Basilica of Santa Croce, pantheon of Italian glories, lies ahead with its secrets, where the monumental tombs of Michelangelo, Galileo and Niccolò Machiavelli are. Here we will finish the trip.
Each tour is an unique experience, thanks to the different guides and the creativity and inspiration of each member of the group!
