DESCRIPTION OF THE DAY

 RENAISSANCE FLORENCE : EXOTERISM AS HARMONY BETWEEN UFFIZI AND ACADEMY

la venere di botticelli uffizi SAN MINIATO raccolta olive BY I VIAGGI DEL GUSTO

Being attraqcetd to Florence means being attracted by the Renaissance for its concept of beauty, understood as an expression of the perfect harmony that regulates man, nature and science. For this reason, for every visitor, in every time you are in Florence, the Uffizi and the Academy Gallery are not to be missed!

And this is how today our journey will be to the discovery of the two greatest actors of the Reinassance: Michelangelo and Botticelli among the few who were able to welcome into painting and sculpture, as geniuses as was, the esoteric language that only in the Renaissance knew how to link faith and science through that a harmony that not only translated into beauty but that made the search for knowledge approve, which translated into science, binding it to a select few: the geniuses! The only ones to whom nature and therefore the divine power had elected them to be educators, the connection, with their esoteric language, between the absolute knowledge of God and the absolute ignorance of medieval man. So our guided ezperience of today will be a guided tour to discover the esoteric Florence of the Renaissance, through the search for those secret codes that will allow us to understand how Botticelli and Michelangelo treated them in art and how the truffle welcomed them translating into the concept of "luxury "the concept of eliteness that we can try in our foodies pit stop with tasting ligh lunch

OPTION # 1: FLORENCE

FD TOUR TO INCLUDE FOR DISCOVERING THE REAL SOUL OF FLORENCE

Private full day discovering Christianity in Florence through two typical districts and a guided tour of Santa Maria Nova Hospital including lunch with typical delicacies.

FLORENCE: OLTRARNO AND SAN LORENZO MEDDLE AGES AND CHRISTIANITY

 TEMPIO SANTA MARIA NUOVA VISITED BY I VIAGGI DEL GUSTO FIRENZE SANTA MARIA NUOVA  FIRENZE OLTRARNO BY I VIAGGI DEL GUSTO

 Accompanied by our Italian lifestyle tutor for the guided tour of Florence that you do not expect to discover: the Christian face, in the Meddle ages  of Florence between the districts of Oltrarno and San Lorenzo, like Florentines, outside the most turistic circle of walls

Today our journey will lead us to discover the face that only the locals expect to find: the medieval towers, as in San Gimignano and the daily life of the Florentines residing starting from the first hospital that from the Middle Ages here continues to work ... only for who lives inside the Florentine walls and who, like then, boasts the support of the Oblate' sisters !!! The guided experience of today will enter the soul of Florence through the lifestyle of the Florentines that we can do only retracing on the path of the Christianity .. so it will be a journey from the district from which the first Christian community Santa Felicita originated, in the Oltrarno district, to the first cathedral of San Lorenzo, passing through the Duomo to visit the museum parts of the Santa Maria Nuova hospital. Here we could understand how Florence became Christian: from the Romans, with the temple, to the Renaissance that hosted Leonardo da Vinci for anatomical studies underneath the complete management of the sisters to whom Folco Portinari, father of the Beatrice loved by Dante, entrusted all responsibility from the end of the 13th century. Then continuing to breath the lifestyle of the few Florentines who continue to live here will make us better understand the Christian approach to lifestyle that they made here: the first orphanage for single mothers ... which was in the middle ages too !!! A foodies pit stop for lunch , as Florentines do,  will make us forget that we are tourists even if lunch will be light !!!
