Piazza della Santissima Annunziata Tours

Piazza della Santissima Annunziata
Florence is a city filled with quaint squares, picturesque landscapes and plenty of old-world architecture that’s ripe with European charm. This is particularly true amid its famous squares, and travelers agree that few are as beautiful as Piazza della Santissima Annunziata. 

A massive bronze statue of Ferdinando I de’Medici on horseback stands at the center of the square, with two notably strange fountains on either side. Visitors can relax in the sun and lounge as locals wind through the square on a busy afternoon, or duck into the Santissima Annunziata church, which was built in the 15th century and gave the square its name. Ospedale deli Innocenti—the oldest orphanage on the continent—also flanks the square and offers travelers a unique opportunity to explore the city’s past. Ceramic glazed reliefs of swaddled newborns line the façade and visitors can check out the circular stone where women could leave their unwanted newborns without fear of repercussion. 

Practical Info

Piazza della Santissima Annunziata is located off of Via della Colonna and accessible via the number 6 and 31 buses. 
Address: Via della Colonna, Florence, Italy

Raffaello (Raphael): his extraordinary life and artworks in Florence

Raffaello (Raphael): his extraordinary life and artworks in Florence

Raffaello Sanzio from Urbino contributed to beautify the city of Florence during his stay in our city from 1504 to 1508. He died at the age of 37 in 1520. On the occasion of the anniversary of his death we have created a special tour about this undiscussed painter. The Palatine Gallery , Palazzo Pitti, houses the best Raphael paintings in Florence, perhaps even a portrait of the beautiful Fornarina in the sweet face of the Madonna della Seggiola (Vergin Mary of the Chair). You will see the Palace where Raphael met Leonardo’s Monna Lisa in Florence and got totally impressed. Raphael was also an original architect of smart taste: Raphael’s style palaces in Florence are very different from the Florentine Renaissance-style buildings. Raffaello was handsome, kind and intelligent, everybody loved him: your guide will tell you the story of Raphael's short but intense life, full of love, women and favours by his patrons!
