This tour will allow you to discover the 'Oltrarno', the part of Florence on the left side of the river Arno where it is possible to experience the soul of the city and get in touch with “the initiators of the Renaissance”, Brunelleschi and Masaccio.
Florence is considered the cradle of the Renaissance because of the cultural texture of its society, which saw a fusion of artists, merchants, humanists and scientists; for this reason we will see masterpieces of paintings and architecture as well as artcraft works.

• Silk Manufacturing: One of the last workshops for silk manufacturing in the world that still uses a warping machine designed by Leonardo da Vinci
• Sculpture studio: An authentic sculpture studio where the same family has been making sculptures for two centuries
