Florence is the birthplace of the Renaissance, but what does this mean in terms of what we see in the streets? Join me on a Live Virtual Tour as, over the course of one hour and from the comfort of your own home, we learn about the guilds which ran the city in the Middle Ages, and about the Medici dynasty, which ruled for three centuries and whose legacy is without comparison in the world of art collections and patronage, leaving us exceptional examples of Renaissance architecture and art.

We start off at the religious centre of town, at the Duomo, or Cathedral, with its magnificent Cupola (masterpiece by Brunelleschi), the Bapistery and the famous Giotto bell-tower.

Half way between the religious and the political centres of town lies the stunning Medieval structure of a church dedicated to Saint Michael, which served various important purposes throughout the ages and which was home to some of the world's most iconic examles of early Renaissance sculpture.

Known as the political centre of Florence, this square has a history going back to the early Roman origins of the city, and leading to its present day role as the main civic centre, with the Town Hall in the Palazzo Vecchio next to the Uffizi, the main museum of art. Also of primary importance are the numerous statues in the square, each with its own history and symbolism.

Extremely knowledgable and flexible specialist in Florence and Tuscany

I would recommend Manolis to any American desiring to get the most out of a trip to Florence and Tuscany. He is a native English speaker, so no accent, but has lived and studied in Florence for many years. We wanted to get out of Florence for a few days, and Manolis not only designed a tour, but found us a driver who was almost as wonderful as he. He was a wonderful leader to our family group, which included young adults visiting for the first time. Prior to our visit, he worked extra hard to recommend hotels and thought about how the tours would go. Our 3 days included a half-day tour of the Uffizi which he personally guided and made the museum reservations for us. We spent an additional two days visiting cities outside Florence, including Siena, Pisa and San Gimignano. He recommended a few additions which turned out to be the highlight of our tour. I would work with him again in a minute.
