On the way to the house of Satan, you'll see the street of beautiful women. Along that path, you'll learn about medieval Florence and how to get cheap wine at the wall holes. Palazzo Tornabuoni-Corsi is your first stop as you explore the noble palaces of Florence. You will discover who introduced lyrical opera to the world. The tour includes a stop at the famous Piazza Santa Trinita, where you will have the chance to admire many beautiful buildings of different architectural styles. It is a worthwhile opportunity to learn about Florentine gastronomy by visiting Lambretesca Street. You'll also know how many kilos of pasta and liters of coffee each Italian drinks yearly.
