Adopt an olive tree is also an original gift idea to offer to relatives or friends, nature and quality product lovers
By adopting an olive tree you will be able to visit some of the most beautiful, evocative, and panoramic places of Florence
This city has so many wonders that a guided tour is a must, both for tourists wishing to discover Florence for the first time but also for those who decide to visit it again. The beauty and history of Florence are closely linked to those of its territory, shaped by the centuries-old and skilful work of man: our visit will be an opportunity to get to know some of the most evocative corners of this extraordinary city, discover its links with the countryside and contribute to the preservation of the landscape heritage of its territory.
The guided tour starts from one of the highest points of Florence, Piazzale Michelangelo, where your eyes are free to gaze over the entire city and the green hills surrounding it: from the green-copper domes of the Jewish Synagogue to Giotto’s Bell Tower, from the Duomo to the church of Santa Croce, from the Ponte Vecchio to the ancient ramparts of the medieval walls which, going up the hill, reach the imposing Forte Belvedere. This wonderful sight of unique views and panoramas does not end here but continues along the path that leads us to Monte alla Croci, the hill dominated by the splendid and ancient basilica of San Miniato al Monte, a marble and green stone chest housing extraordinary masterpieces. After visiting the church we will head towards the picturesque district of San Niccolò walking through the Giardino delle Rose, a harmonious rose garden filled with flower beds and walkways, home of over 1000 botanical varieties, including 370 varieties of ancient roses, a real flowery curtain framing one of the most beautiful views of the city.
