David in florenceZoom walk around Florence

On 14 October 2021

Anna Piperato guided us around many of the main sites of Florence, on a live zoom walk. Starting at San Lorenzo to learn about the Medici family. Then towards the Duomo and the Baptistry Campanile - and that famous dome.
Heading down the Via dei Calzaiuoli (bonus points if you can pronounce It). We marvelled at the sculptures at the Orsanmichele  before arriving in Piazza della Signoria (where a copy of Michelangelo’s ‘
David’  guards the entrance to the Town Hall). Passing underneath the Uffizi Gallery before finishing with a beautiful  view of the River Arno and Ponte Vecchio. It was a superb morning.

   For those of you who don’t know Anna she is a registered guide, passionate and contagious and a very knowledgable young woman.  She  grew up in the USA and studied Art History  in  New York and  Manchester.  Now living  in Siena sharing her love for Italy.
