Full description
The Cat and the Fox, the adorable Blue Fairy, the terrible Fish-dog, the thoughtful Geppetto, not to mention the Talking Cricket; meet all these characters on a journey that will make both the young and old dream. Live Pinocchio's adventure with the help of a multi-lingual tour guide who will take you to key places in Florence and Tuscany. The morning will be dedicated to the rediscovery of some corners of Florence that have marked important moments in the life of Carlo Lorenzini, known to most by the pseudonym of Collodi. Visit the plaque marking his birthplace on via Taddea and the bronze statue representing the famous puppet before finally reaching the family chapel in the monumental cemetery of Porte Sante, where Lorenzini rests. Then, traveling in a comfortable minivan, head to the Tuscan hills where you will reach the village of Collodi. Be amazed by the beautiful garden of Villa Garzoni, a garden that Carlo himself helped to take care of and make prosper. After a stop for lunch, the guide will accompany you in your exploration of the Pinocchio Park. Hear some passages from the novel while walking the paths from which all the characters of the story emerge.
