Tours / Step by Step up to Piazzale Michelangelo

This tour goes at a fast pace, it is a tour suitable for those who want to experience Florence actively. It starts from the Ponte Vecchio and along the Arno we arrive at an ancient and hidden staircase in the Oltrarno. From here you go up to Piazzale Michelangelo, the terrace that reveals a breathtaking view over the city of Florence. Piazzale Michelangelo was built in the nineteenth century as a monument dedicated to the genius of Michelangelo Buonarroti. In the middle of the large square there are also nineteenth-century remakes of the sculptures of the great artist, including his David. We will continue up a further staircase to visit the Basilica of San Miniato al Monte, a jewel, a Romanesque church on the hill. The panorama of the city from San Miniato is impressive. Another place to visit in San Miniato is the Cemetery of the Holy Doors, a monumental churchyard where, among others, the director Franco Zeffirelli and Carlo Collodi, Pinocchio's father, rest.

Just wear simple clothes and comfortable shoes ....... and remember to bring a bottle of water!

Experience recommended for those who love art, nature and movement
