A beautiful sport’s week, ciclists crossing the city center, the bike passion has invaded Florence!
The imposing Neptune’s fountain in Signoria Square, Florence (1560-65). Did you know that? You can see the Gran Duke Cosimo‘s portrait in Neptune’s face. He wanted the sculptor Ammannati to celebrate him as the Greek god of the oceans, because he founded the town of Leghorn, first port of Tuscany on the Tyrrhenian See.

This is the last masterpiece made by my marvelous niece Leda. She is 5 years old and she loves drawing. Explanation of the work of art: on the right you can see Santa Claus with his bag full of gifts (that she wants to receive of course…this is a subliminal message for Santa) and on the opposite side you can admire the typical Christmas sledge towed by areindeer (with antlers). On the back: inscription saying “zia Checca” (“auntie Checca”). Checca is my nickname.
Why don’t you buy yourself a guided tour of Florence this Christmas? Things are passing, a guided tour is an unforgettable experience.
Emotions – The greatest gift!
