DAY 5 – Tuesday, April 14, 2015
After breakfast at our hotel we depart for a Morning Walking Tour of Florence
We will start this whirlwind city tour by first stopping at the Accademia to visit Michelangelo’s David. We’ll continue our walking tour passing by the Medici Palace (once the home of this noble family), and then reaching the famous San Lorenzo Church and its cloisters, one of the first renaissance churches built by the Medici family. We’ll then proceed to the Duomo, a feat of early fifteenth century engineering and after a short walk through Piazza della Signoria (Florence’s main square) and the busy Mercato della Paglia (or straw square) to rub the “lucky wild-bore”, finally passing by the impressive Rucellai Palace (which together with the Medici palace were the two renaissance monuments of Florence).
After our walking tour of Florence we’ll finish our day with lunch at one of Florence’s restaurants.
Rest of the day is at your leisure
