Historical and cultural walking tours of Europe's finest cities.

We'll start at the Duomo, Florence's vast cathedral, and tell you not only how the magnificent dome was created but how this remarkable piece of engineering was one of the corner stones of the Renaissance. Whether you go inside then or wait until later is up to you. Either way, next we'll wander down the Via Calzaiuoli and talk about how the shops around this modern Florentine street relate to the Renaissance and Florence's history.

We'll show where Florence's smartest cafes are and then take you into the Palazzo Vecchio, and then the Ponte Vecchio, and explain what all those padlocks on its railings are about.

Then, into Oltrarno, and we'll talk about the history of the Palazzo Pitti and its connection with opera as well as explaining what is so vitally important to the history of art about a small fresco in the Brancacci chapel.

We'll then point out to you the best and oldest fragrance shop in Florence and show you the vast and sombre Medici chapel. You'll get a great understanding not only of what is what and where to find it in Florence, but also of the history and significance of this great city. Download and start listening now!
