Florence tour art, alchemy and spirituality.

The walking tour was designed to make you discover historical and anecdotal points in Florence that go beyond the classic tours; in fact together we will discover a part of Florence, of the medieval period, which developed thanks to the religious orders. We will discover how these Religious Orders of the 13th century they have Christianized and brought art closer to spirituality, but above all how they have been able to preserve and pass on the ancient craft of apothecaries, one of the seven Florentine Major Arts.
