Florence, at once small and immense, is an open-air museum that safeguards grandiose masterworks of art and architecture. During this tour you will have the opportunity to discover its architecture and monuments with their stories of art, war, and life. You will walk through its streets, the same ones through which Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo, Dante, and many other famous minds threaded their ways. We will experience much of what others experienced five hundred years ago as well as the joys of present day Florence. What a treat!
