Visitare Firenze in 24 ore

C’è chi non può concedersi lunghi viaggi, chi preferisce scegliere un posto in cui alloggiare e poi girovagare nei dintorni durante il tempo a disposizione. Nei molti anni di esperienza mi sono trovato a rispondere alle richieste si molti clienti che mi chiedevano  cosa vedere in un giorno oppure quello che non devono perdersi, avendo a disposizione un solo giorno. Per queste ragioni ho pensato di fare cosa gradita e  utile approntare delle linee guida che vi permettino di sapere come visitare Firenze in 1 giorno.

 

Il pericolo delle città d’arte tanto intrise di storia e luoghi da vedere è che si perda tempo con qualcosa di essenzialmente poco noto, trascurando invece quelle che sono le opere degli artisti più importanti. Se per visitare Firenze avete poco tempo a disposizione, non potrete rinunciare a vedere il David di Michelangelo, la scultura che Michelangelo” aiutò a uscire dal marmo”, come amava affermare nei suoi scritti. Simbolo dell’Umanesimo fa parte insieme ad altre opere dei Prigioni, così chiamati per quanto è stato affermato sopra, ovverosia perché Michelangelo riteneva che le statue in realtà esistessero già e che fossero intrappolate nel marmo.

Oltre all’Accademia non potrete mancare una visita alle gallerie d’arte, sempre  colme di turisti tanto che per entrare bisogna prenotare per gli Uffizi. Qui potrete ammirare le opere dei maestri quali Leonardo, Tiziano, Raffaello, Botticelli, i cui lavori più noti sono in maggioranza esposti all’interno della Galleria. Una volta visitata l’intera Galleria non vi resta che attraversare il celebre Ponte Vecchio, noto per essere stato l’unico ponte a restare intatto dopo i copiosi bombardamenti della Seconda Guerra Mondiale.

L’ultima tappa, se volete visitare Firenze in 1 giorno, oltre al Duomo, il Battistero e il Campanile, è Palazzo Pitti, un pezzo di storia importante che potrete apprezzare dopo esservi riposati nei giardini di Boboli. Proprio in questo Palazzo si trovano, infatti, diversi musei; tutti degni di nota: troviamo la Galleria Palatina che ospita le opere del Tardo Rinascimento e del Barocco, precisamente di Raffaello e Tiziano, la Galleria moderna con le opere dei macchiaioli e in particolare del caposcuola Fattori. Oltre a queste esposizioni troviamo anche musei specializzati come quello degli argenti, quello delle porcellane, delle carrozze e la Galleria del costume.

The Renaissance Ring

The Renaissance Ring is a hiking and mountain bike proposal
178 km around Florence, focussing on Filippo Brunelleschi’s Dome, which is the Cathedral’s Dome, through woodland and cultivated country.

The Renaissance Ring – Anello del Rinascimento is an excursion itinerary for getting to know the surroundings of Florence, fascinating for their landscape and nature as well as for the art and history they contain. There has been a strong unbroken tie over the centuries between the city of Florence and the surrounding countryside; the sharing of knowledge and experience has been extremely fruitful and never one way, which is something you can feel to this day by walking through the nature of the countryside and encountering the many examples of its art and history.

The whole Renaissance Ring is about 170 kilometres long and is ideal for walking or mountain biking; in drafting it we came across parts of the old Florence road network, now in disuse and disrepair, and we kept away from tarred roads save for a few exceptions. Vertical and horizontal signs accompany tourists and guide them on their way, and since each section of the Ring has a public transport link with Florence it can also be enjoyed as a separate unit.

Walking over the hills, in the woods, by the ploughed fields, the visitor crosses areas of great landscape significance. You encounter monasteries, castles, hospices to welcome pilgrims, ancient walled communities, country churches, sections of paved roads that go back to Roman or Medieval times and ideally our eye is always on the old centre of the city of the lily whose focal point is the dome of the cathedral, the masterpiece of Filippo Brunelleschi, which identifies Florence.

APT has published a map-guide that describes the Renaissance Ring with great clarity. For local walking tours, there are professional environmental guides on hand. In addition to accompanying and providing technical assistance, they can also illustrate the features of the land, its ecology and how it has interacted with human settlements.

Romantic Florence

In this itinerary you find some places referred to passionate love stories of the past.
Visit them remembering the lives of those who lived them in Florence

Florence’s most famous love story of the past is that between Francesco I dei Medici and Bianca Cappello. bianca_cappelloShe was the daughter of Bartolommeo Cappello, a member of one of the noblest Venetian families, and Pellegrina Morosini. In 1563, she fell in love with the Florentine Pietro Bonaventuri and eloped with him to Florence, where they were married on the 12th of December of that same year.
In Florence she won the admiration of many, and the Grand Duke himself fell in love with her.

The hill of Bellosguardo saw the love of Ugo Foscolo and Quirina Mocenni Magiotti. In Villa Torricella, destroyed in the early 1900′s, and once located in front of today’s Villa dell’Ombrellino, the poet composed the verses of the poem “Le Grazie” (1813) dedicating them to his loved one.

Quirina was unhappily married to a weak, mentally-ill man, and yet was the only woman who continued to love Foscolo over the years, to whom he could always turn even when in exile in Switzerland and England, and who could bear his “turbulent nature”.

The funereal monument of Ugo Foscolo is in the Church of Santa Croce.
elizabeth_robert_browningRobert and Elisabeth Barrett Browning, the famous couple of English poets, moved to Florence to elude Elizabeth’s oppressive father: their passionate love kept them happily united for fifteen years.
They lived at Casa Guidi, in Piazza di San Felice, that became, in that period, the spiritual “Mecca “ of the Anglo-American community in Florence. Only after Elizabeth’s death (1861), did Robert return to England together with their son.
Elisabeth Barrett Browning was buried in the English Cemetery in Piazza Donatello.

To have her always near, the Grand Duke appointed Bonaventuri Keeper of his Wardrobe, and thus kept the beautiful Bianca at the royal palace.
When Francesco married Bianca Cappello, less than two months after the death of the Grand Duchess Johanna of Austria, the entire family came to disapprove of Bianca.

The Palazzo del Mondragone, located in Via dei Banchi, at the corner with via del Giglio, is the place where Francesco de’ Medici and Bianca Cappello met during a reception, and fell in love at first sight.
The Palazzo di Bianca Cappello in Via Maggio, 26, with its sgraffito-decorated façade, was renovated by the architect Bernardo Buontalenti.
