TAPSY’S ROUTE TO VISIT FLORENCE WITH KIDS
I believe the best way to explore a city with kids in getting them involved in an adventure and that’s exactly what Tapsy Tours are: a fun and cultural adventure across the city!
BASILICA OF THE HOLY CROSS
A great tour of Florence can’t but start from the Basilica of the Holy Cross, the place where the Stendhal syndrome was first coined. A super fanTAPSYc and kid-friendly guide will involve children in tricky riddles inspired by the Basilica: mom and dad, get prepared to help them!
PIAZZA DELLA SIGNORIA
Probably the most important square in Florence, it boasts Palazzo Vecchio (“the old palace”) and the famous statue of David. There is a curiosity about the statue I bet you don’t know…Which one? Take part to a Tapsy Tour and discover it with me!
Famous for hosting some of the best jewelers in Florence, this ancient and colorful bridge is one of the most iconic symbols of Florence, as well as one of my favorite bridges ever!
PIAZZA DEL MERCATO NUOVO
Located at a few steps from Ponte Vecchio, this market is especially famous for selling handcrafted items made by local artisans. Kids will love this square for the cute and unusual friend it hosts: Il Porcellino (The Piglet)! Did I tell you that moles and piglets are special friends? Hurry up, come and rub its snout with me!
Built in 1337 to be a grain market, it was later transformed into a church of arts. Discover with Tapsy Tours’ guide some incredible facts about it!
PIAZZA DEL DUOMO
Kids will love the colors and shapes of this beautiful and unique square located in the centre of Florence. From Florence Cathedral, to Giotto’s Campanile and the Florence Baptistery, the buildings that adorn it where ideated and built by some of the most famous architects in Italy ever.
PALAZZO MEDICI RICCARDI
Commissioned by the powerful Medici family, this Renaissance building, once house of Cosimo de’ Medici, nowadays hosts the Council of Florence and many interesting exhibitions.
I love visiting this incomplete church with kids. Why? Because with their incredible imagination they can built a new and unique one in their mind and share it with me and the whole family!
LEONARDO DA VINCI’S MUSEUM
Leonardo Da Vinci, with his extraordinary projects and discoveries, is one of the most important personalities in Italy and in the world. Discover the museum dedicated to Leonardo Da Vinci with Tapsy Tours and guess with me what the projects were meant to be for.
