Visit with your guide various workshops and shops of craftsmen and discover another side of Florence on walking tour.
What to Expect
From the thirteenth century, the city has been trying to keep traditions as intact as possible. This tour will take you to discover the craftsmen who have given so much fame to the city: from the glass-makers to the artists of the "canary", from leather goods to jewelry, from paper-makers to framers.
Starting from the Old Bridge you will cross all the Oltrarno, visiting the sites of significant art: Church of Santa Felicita, with its frescoes by Pontormo and Bronzino, the Church of the Holy Spirit, with the crucifix by Michelangelo, the Church of Santa Maria del Carmine with the Brancacci Chapel, a masterpiece by Masaccio and Masolino.
Enter the shops of Via Maggio, Borgo San Frediano and Piazza Torquato Tasso and in the many workshops of decorators, cabinetmakers, silversmiths, bronze workers, weavers, potters, weavers of tapestries, all holders of a wisdom and creativity that, over time, Florence has preserved and enhanced as a vital asset at your disposal.
