Description

This tour at a fast walking pace is designed for those who want to experience Florence's art and nature actively.You will start from the Ponte Vecchio and continue along the Arno until an ancient and hidden staircase - called Rampe del Poggi - in the Oltrarno. From there, you'll go up to Piazzale Michelangelo, the terrace that reveals a breathtaking view over the city of Florence.Piazzale Michelangelo was built in the 19th century as a monument dedicated to the genius of Michelangelo Buonarroti. In the middle of the large square, you'll find remakes of the sculptures of the great artist, including his David.A further staircase connects the square to the Basilica of San Miniato al Monte, a jewel of Romanesque architecture set on a hill. The panorama of the city from San Miniato is impressive. Another place to see in San Miniato is the Cemetery of the Holy Doors, a monumental churchyard where the film director Franco Zeffirelli and Carlo Collodi, Pinocchio's father, are buried.
