Tourist Opportunities – Florence

By foot

Piazzale Michelangelo it is a beautiful walk that can be done by foot, starting from the villa. Following a path in the countryside you get to this huge square where you can enjoy the full view of Florence. Extending along the hill and you arrive at the Astronomical Observatory and then descends along the gardens and countryside Porta Romana, the other side of town.
Another great walk from the villa to the center: along the Arno you arrive 10 minutes Ponte Vecchio, cross it and you are located in the heart of the city, the Duomo, Palazzo Vecchio, the Uffizi Gallery are just there.

Florence with children

Anyone who decides to come on holiday to Florence with young children in town must take into account that they cannot see everything. However, by involving them, perhaps by leveraging the playful aspect, you can do much of what you have set yourself. For example, you can transform the climb on the dome of the Duomo (463 steps sic!) Into a sort of race, or play hide and seek (with all the necessary precautions) in the Boboli Gardens. They must also be entertained.  Interactive workshops, theatricalized workshops and visit routes specifically aimed at schools and families with children have been included inside Palazzo Vecchio. A real Children’s Museum to which we must add the toy libraries managed directly by the municipality

 Hills of Florence

There are places where trekking is a constant stimulus for reflection. The hills around Florence are among them. To see, in fact, there is not only the landscape drawn as far as the eye can see from vineyards and olive groves, but also villas, museums, archaeological excavations, churches, convents, squares and of course beautiful panoramas. Like that of Ontignano, a small hamlet in the municipality of Fiesole, or that of Troghi, a hamlet in the municipality of Rignano sull’Arno.
