Description

Fall in love with Florence from a different perspective: from the Top. Sitting comfortably on one of our minivans, we will visit Piazzale Michelangelo with its amazing view over the city. You’ll get your personal postcard of Florence and always remember how magnificent the Rinascimental city looked like. Then continuing to Fiesole, the wonderful town of Etruscan and Roman roots situated on a hilltop overlooking Florence. This is an awesome place to get some great skyline pictures. During the tour we will see lesser-known suburban areas which are hard to reach on foot, but of artistic and historic interest. Then we will head back to the centre of Florence where you’ll visit one of the most famous museum of the world: the Accademia Gallery.  Together with our professional guide you will learn why the David is the most recognizable symbol of Florence and what it used to represent in his time. How did the genius of Michelangelo meet the challenge of extracting the pathos of a being and fixing it forever in time in the Pietà, or the famous Prisoners who still seem to struggle free from their marble blocks? You will have the answers to all your questions. Get the chance to have a close encounter with timeless works of art and get the inside story of the life and times of this consummate artist.
