Description

Enjoy a thrilling walking tour with your professional guide, through one of the most picturesque areas of Florence, where you can explore the celebrated districts of San Frediano (declared the coolest neighborhood of the world!) and Santo Spirito, meet the genuine Florentine people and learn how they live and work in. 

A short distance away from the impressive Piazza Pitti, you will visit some of the extraordinary workshops where to admire local artisans at work, producing marvelous traditional handicrafts such as engravings, art prints, marble paper, enamel and silver objects.
Led by your expert guide, you will also reach the charming Piazza Santo Spirito, with its typical family restaurants, small shops and artists’ studios.
Here you will be able to visit the charming namesake church designed by Brunelleschi which was the last masterpiece of the great Artist and discover the wonderful Santo Spirito Monumental complex: cloister, refectory, chapter house and sacristy, where to admire the only existing wooden sculpture of Michelangelo: a crucifix that he carved at the age of only 17.
To complete this unforgettable experience, your guide will finally bring you into a famed sculpture workshop* where to admire the impressive collection of models, molds and replicas of classical art.

* in case the visit of the Atelier is not available, it will be replaced with the visit of an additional Florentine Artisan Workshop
