I took the Art Viva Uffizi tour with Klaus on September 1, 2017, and it was the most engaging tour ever. He showed us a $75 dollar piece of lapis lazuli from Afghanistan to illustrate how Renaissance painters ground the stone to make a brilliant...More

Florentia, as it was called by Latins, is permeated by
an eternal beauty spread in all corners of the city.
The historic center is characterized by the immensity
of the Duomo, able to transport tourists into the
brightest age of Florence: the Renaissance. Who does
not know the Brunelleschi Dome, San Giovanni
Baptistery and the Giotto’s Campanile? Everything is
enclosed here and it would be easy to imagine the city
