Full description

This private 2.5-hour tour takes you on a journey through history to the Medieval Ages. Discover how Florence was characterized by the great poet Dante Alighieri and the struggle between the Guelphs and the Ghibellines. Learn about the tower-houses and their functions, as not just family homes, but defensive structures as well.

On this tour, your guide will talk about Florence's medieval history and the importance of the tower-houses. See the towers of Visdomini, Donati, and Ricci and learn why very few of these 12th-century tower-houses remain. See how the tower-houses were a means of noble families to demonstrate their prestige.

Visit and tour the tower-house of a local antique dealer and and understand life that took place in the Medieval Ages in Florence. This tour is guided by a true Florentine with a passion for the history of Florence.
