Our meeting point will be in Piazza della Repubblica, where florentines used to go for shopping in the past and where the city was founded over 2000 thousand years ago. Our purpose is to make you feel as Florence could be your second home trying to give an authentic experience by a local point of view. Your mind and your imagination will be immersed in the past without forgetting the connection with modern and contemporary times. While admiring the most important religious florentine square, we'll make you revive the agreements that brought at the construction of the cathedral where the Pazzi conspiracy took place. We'll give you the chance to picture better how the city could have been around 1200-1300, walking through the medieval district, looking up to the tower houses. After that, we'll move in via Calzaiuoli, where the shoemakers used to have their workshops, passing around an open-air museum called Orsanmichele decorated with incredible sculptures by Donatello, Giambologna and Leonardo's master. Other great artists will accompany us in Piazza della Signoria which in the past was the stage of the public execution of Savonarola and where the municipality is housed. Our final destination will be the Arno river, watching from the right side Ponte Vecchio and from the left our favourite viewpoint, Michelangelo square, where artists play live music during sunset time.
Ciao everybody! My name is Julinda and Florence is my Grande Amore. I'm a lover of Art , history and Architecture. Thanks to my Artistic, Humanistic and Cultural studies I really got in love with Dante & Michelangelo's birthplace . I did learn a lot about painting and sculpture's techniques, architecture and Tuscan handicraft products. As I really care about customer satisfaction, I did investigate about the best places where to experience some food tasting or coffee shops with unique panoramic views or which are the best places to shop in the city for Fashion Alcoholics. It will be my pleasure to share my knowledge, passion & my personal point of view about Florence, with the people who would love to join me. I'm a Florence tour guide and tour leader. Feel free to sent me a PM to customize for you an Exclusive private tour
