This tour aims to involve kids in the history of Florence, showing them not just medioeval palaces but how people lived there and how children behaved at the time. We start with the Palazzo Davanzati, unique building of the 13hundreds  with itsoriginal furniture and very well preserved decorations, to go on to the Holy Trinity church where the master of Michelangelo frescoed a child saved after falling from a window. Our tour continues with a walk along the river, to find out stone lions coming out medioeval towers, explaining their meanings and the stories behind them. It is then with the statues of Piazza della Signoria that  our  kids will have the chance to guess what the artist wanted to represent and to be introduced to mythological figures, their meanings in the Antique and still nowadays. Tour ends up with a gelato in an artisan gelateria of the Dante's neighborhood. 3 hours tour.
