This is a walking tour to explore a different part of the city and to offer you the most panoramic views over Florence. We will first visit the one of the oldest churches in Florence, a Romanesque San Miniato where you will have the panorama from the top of the hill. We will go down passing through the Piazzale Michelangelo which offers yet another point of view over the city, and we will visit the picturesque rose's garden with its sculptures and its hidden spots. We will have a walk in the San Niccolò zone, which is a lively and local district of the city, and we will finish the experience at the Old Bridge, admiring the view from the Lungarno.

Hi, I'm Joanna, born in Poland but living in Florence since 2004. I'm passionate about the art, the history, the local traditions and the hiking. I love to share my passions with tourists that's why I work in tourism and as a licensed tour guide. Even if I have lived here for so many years now, I still look at this city like in the very beginning, my very first sight.... That's why I can immagine your first impressions and amazements. I would like to propose you some different tours that I don't do usually during my work and I would like to show you different aspects of this beautiful city in an exchange of experiences and points of view.
The point of this experience is to have a walk together to admire the beautiful views, take some nice pictures and in the same time to learn about the history, the art and the curiosities. I will show and explain to you amongst many others: walls of the city modified by Michelangelo / fresco technique / benedictine pharmacy / street art studio / renaissance palaces / different kind of roses / Jean-Michel Folon sculptures etc....
