Florence for Families

This is a tailor-made itinerary for kids and an excellent introduction to the city  for adults too! I am happy to offer a large number of child-friendly activities, tested by my “little assistant”, Livia, and lots of young explorers from all over the world. A guided tour that brings to life the daily court of the Medici family or a hunt for the footprints of exotic animals on fresco paintings in a Renaissance palace. For little explorers we may also propose the Museo Stibbert’s porcelain warriors, armors and antique daggers which will keep kids engaged for hours! Not to be missed, a special ride on the colorful antique carousel in Piazza della Repubblica with a refreshing gelato afterwards! Little chefs in training may even try to bake a tasty pizza in a traditional wood oven! Explore a home from the 1300s and its trap doors, tiny bathrooms and hidden safes. Climbing the old wooden staircase of a medieval tower as far as the top loggia overlooking downtown Florence will be a priceless experience for the entire family. For the creative little artists pencils and drawings will help introduce kids to Botticelli’s, Giotto’s and Michelangelo’s outstanding talents and to everyday life during the Middle Ages and the Renaissance.
