Our local Guide will lead us through the heart of the Italian Renaissance. Florence keeps an exceptional artistic heritage; Cimabue and Giotto, the fathers of Italian painting art, lived in Florence as well as Brunelleschi, Donatello and Masaccio forefathers of the Renaissance, Ghiberti and Angelico, Botticelli and the universal genius of Leonardo Da Vinci and Michelangelo.

Great monuments are the landmarks of Florentine artistic culture: the Baptistery with the bronze doors by Ghiberti, one of which is called the Door of Paradise. Signoria Square (Piazza della Signoria) and the Cathedral with the Giotto's bell-tower, the sculptures and the immense cupola by Brunelleschi, the medieval churches with bands of frescoes; public as well as private palaces; Old Palace (Palazzo Vecchio) Pitti Palace, Medici Palace - all external visits - and the charming Lungarno (the Arno river banks) with the Old Bridge (Ponte Vecchio) and its two rows of artisan shops.

The city is so rich in art that our eyes will be rapt by the magnificence of each corner in this town.
