StayCation — Florence
March 13-19, 2022
September 5th – 11th, 2022
Renaissance means “rebirth” and no city embodies the idea more than Firenze. Florence, the city of flowers, was the most important city of the 1500’s, filled with wealthy merchants hiring the best artists of the time— Michaelangelo, Leonardo DaVinci, Botticelli. This has left the city with one of the greatest cultural patrimonies in the world, and it waits for you to dig a bit below the typical visit and discover its depth.
Florence is a city built for a staycation, just as the English of the Grand Tour discovered, there is far too much to see for just a few days’ stay. While a visit to the Uffizi Gallery is required, the city itself is like an enormous diffused art museum. Each day, we will explore churches full of artworks, back alleys noisy with artisan workshops, and enotecas serving up some of the best wine that Italy has to offer. Our stay will also include some Tuscan wandering, with classic cypress tree vistas.
We have enjoyed our small groups so much that we will continue to keep numbers low and personal attention high. This tour will have a maximum of 16 guests.
The March tour will be led by Sarah. Local guides will also join us for more in-depth learning.
The September tour will be lead by Anna Piperato.
