About the tour

In the city of the David (Michelangelo’s that is), among the treasures of the Renaissance, there are an astonishing number of traces of the Jewish community which lived, thrived, suffered and survived here throughout the ages. Please join me on a quest, to search for these traces, in a series of walks of discovery through the city center.

Really informative throughout the tour but lacked a bit of Jewish content. Would benefit from a little more research into Jewish life in Florence and telling us some stories about this on the walk.
