Florence for families

MEETING POINT: IN FRONT OF THE SANTA MARIA NOVELLA CHURCH

This walking tour is designed for families with young kids and focused to get them involved in the experience. The children will be asked to use their 5 senses to explore Florence:

Smell“: we start with the “Santa Maria Novella pharmacy” smelling ancient parfumes invented by the Dominican friars in the XIII century.
Hearing“: we listen to the bells and the sounds of the city in the Duomo square.
Sight“: we stroll through narrow alleys in the city center, passing by tall Medieval towers and Renaissance palaces. We challenge our “sight” to discover hidden details and to hunt the coat of arms of ancient rich and power families.
Touch“:we stop at some artisans’ workshops (opening times permitting) to discover either how to decorate paper or mint an old gold coin.
Taste“: we end up with a blinded gelato tasting in my local favourite place! Are you able to recognise different gelato flavours if blindfolded?
