Highlights of Florence – (3 hours) - We will visit the main sights of the city: Piazza della Signoria, Ponte Vecchio, the Duomo, Orsanmichele, and other -off-the-beaten – path features. We will discuss the urban development of Florence from its Roman foundations to present day; we will observe those peculiar aspects of medieval Florence – its narrow alleys and its towers, of Renaissance palaces, of churches, bridges, and elements of daily life. We will discuss the city’s artists and their patrons. We’ll also talk about- how money was made, the banking system of the 15th century, and how money was spent. As we walk you will be able to grasp, why and how, this extraordinary city gave birth to the Renaissance, how it became the center of Italian and European culture in the 15th century, and from there how it evolved in time.
