Another place to visit in Florence
The tour starts with the visit of the Academy Gallery that still houses the original David by Michelangelo, a place not to be missed in Florence.
We will try to understand the Florentine genious through his masterpieces, unveiling vices and phobias that characterised his long and fruitful career.
Duomo Square is our next point of interest where we will focus on the main religious buildings like the catherdral and the baptistery, which is definitely another place to visit in Florence.
We will then walk toward Santa Croce area, where Michelangelo lived and we will finish our Florence tour with the visit of the Basilica of Santa Croce, an ancient medieval Franciscan church, where the artist’s tomb is. This church is also called the Florentine Pantheon, bacause it offers the chance to see the tombs of the most famous Florentines: Machiavelli and Galileo were buried here.
If you want to have a taste of the Florentine handmade tradition, you can not miss the Leather School, that is at the backside of the church and connected to it, where artisans still create excellent leather manufactored products according to ancient techniques.
