An exclusive tour only on Destination Florence, to enjoy a magical experience for the whole family and get to know Florence with a local guide.
This is a pleasant walk starting from piazza della Repubblica, the "belly button" of Florence, where children will be amazed to discover the old system of the Roman city from which began the history of Florence.
Continue to the ancient and colourful Straw Market where you will have the opportunity to caress the shiny nose of the famous "Piglet", the most popular, photographed and "lucky" statue in the city.
You can admire the view over the Arno river crossed by the picturesque Ponte Vecchio, with its typical glittering jewelry shops, before reaching piazza della Signoria, the political centre of the city dominated by the famous Palazzo Vecchio and, while adults will enjoy the wonders of a true "open-air museum", children will be captivated by stories of secret passages, vanished churches, navigators and great artists.
Then you proceed to the neighborhood of Dante Alighieri, along the same streets where the "great poet" met his beloved Beatrice, fascinated by their romance and absorbed by the magic of the medieval center where children, unexpectedly, will also meet Pinocchio, the most famous "wooden puppet" in the world. Don’t let your kids miss the opportunity to take a nice souvenir photo with him!
A refreshing and mouth-watering stop at an ice-cream shop will follow: here you will be able to taste a real homemade “gelato”.
You finally reach the religious center of the city where, besides admiring the great Cathedral with the famous Brunelleschi's Dome, the Baptistery with the wonderful "Door of Paradise" and the elegant Bell Tower, you will be told stories of bizarre creatures, magical plants, astonishing animals and other wonders.
