What you'll do

Breathtaking views and fascinating stories of Florence will guide us through our walk on the hills. The unspoiled countryside with it's typical olive groves, vineyards and cypress trees bears witness to the harmonious coexistence of man and nature. We'll take a journey through time as we climb up to S. Miniato and then walk along ancient roads among exclusive villas. We'll have a peak into the lives of great renaissance men who's insights on nature were groundbreaking as we reach the hill renown for Galileo's home and observatory. And yes, we can't do without Leonardo's understanding of plants! A bit further on into our loop walk we will stop for a snack (tuscan focaccia of course) and will have time to relax. From here we will enjoy many other bird's-eye views as we descend back into town.

Where you'll be

Among the many reasons that make Florence unique is that of having a photogenic and unspoiled countryside at it’s doors. We will walk straight out of the city center up the hill of Pian de' Giullari, where jesters and musicians performed and where Galileo lived, and back in a loop walk. You'll be out of the tourist hub and enjoy the Renaissance city from above.
