Enjoy a relaxing stroll around the enchanting and mysterious Oltrarno area. Delve into its mysterious and murky past on this relaxing evening stroll, before taking the edge off with a glass of Italian wine!

Take in breathtaking riverside vistas. See famous Renaissance palaces bristling with scandal and murderous intrigues.

Hear about the bitter and bloody feud that divided Florence. Discover where once lived the man whose name has become synonymous with evil cunning, Machiavelli.
