Wandering the halls of the Uffizi and gazing on Michelangelo’s ‘David’, it’s hard to imagine the scandal and violence that characterized Florence before the Renaissance. On this night walking tour you will peel back the layers to uncover an older, darker side of the city, telling you the legends and mysteries that shed new light on some of the city’s most important sites.
The tour reveals sordid tales of the true Florence of the Medieval Ages, when cutthroat business (sometimes literal) was the name of the game, and protecting your tower home from intruders meant keeping a cauldron of oil always on the boil. It was a time when streets deemed “too dark” were closed as a matter of public safety and traitors were burned, their bodies hung out in public as a warning to all.
