Tours / A PROMENADE WITH GALILEO GALILEI

On this Made of Tuscany tour, we honor the man who became known as the father of modern science, Galileo Galilei.

A small group will travel to the places in Florence that testify to his greatness as an astronomer, physicist, and engineer. You will be told about his known and also secret moments of his life and his main relationships: his daughters, his friends, the Medicis, and the Clergymen! The famous Museo Galileo, the Museum of Science dedicated to the astronomer, holds around 1500 unique scientific instruments from the past. Galileo was a man of many wonders and deserves a huge section dedicated to him. This is where you can see the two famous telescopes Galileo used and the finger of the great physique perfectly preserved. After that we will explore some places in town where you still feel Galileo Galilei’s presence before the tour comes to an end.
