Join a passionate local guide at the “belly button” of Florence on Piazza della Repubblica, and set off in search of city legends. Adults will appreciate the historical aspect of Florence as they walk a route that touches artistic landmarks in the old city center.
Learn how Florence was originally modeled on a Roman city as you walk to the Straw Market (Mercato Nuovo). Caress the nose of the famous "piglet" statue for good luck.

Admire the statues of the "outdoor museum" as your kids are captivated by stories of secret passages, vanished churches, and great navigators.
Go to the neighborhood where Dante Alighieri lived and met his beloved Beatrice. Stroll down medieval streets and meet Pinocchio, the most famous wooden puppet in the world. Then it’s time for a mouth-watering gelato at an historic ice-cream shop that uses organic ingredients.
Continue into the city center to see Brunelleschi's miraculous Dome, along with the marble façades of the Baptistery, the "Door of Paradise," and the elegant Bell Tower. Hear stories of bizarre creatures, magical plants, astonishing animals and other wonders!
