Sunday 25 and Saturday 31 October two new guided tours to discover the secrets of the city: from the walk in Florence by architect Giuseppe Poggi to the legends and scary tales scheduled for Halloween night.

From the unprecedented tour among enchanting gardens, green areas and hidden corners in the footsteps of Giuseppe Poggi, to the suggestive night walk among ghost stories and thrilling legends on Halloween evening , discovering a mysterious Florence. On Sunday 25 and Saturday 31 October two new EnjoyFirenze® appointments are scheduled , the guided tours of Cooperativa Archeologia, to discover the treasures of Florence and Tuscany in the company of experts ( booking required ).

Sunday 25 October the program opens in the afternoon with the news of this month , the unprecedented walk in green Florence by Giuseppe Poggi . The departure from Piazza San Marco, at 15.00 , will follow in the footsteps of the plan that the architect Giuseppe Poggi developed in 1865, on behalf of the Municipality of Florence, for the expansion and rehabilitation of the city when it was designated to the role capital of Italy and which contributed to giving Florence a celebratory, modern and bourgeois face. This aspect can be appreciated above all in the design of green squares, tree-lined avenues and in the large intervention that led to the creation of the wonderful scenography of Viale dei Colli, with the Rampe, Piazzale Michelangelo and other areas, such as the Rose Garden , connected to it. It was a green reconversion plan for a city that had maintained a medieval aspect up to that time and that in its ancient urban fabric did not provide for a distinction between public and private areas.

Following, the itinerary on Halloween evening : Saturday 31 October , after the meeting at 20.30 at the Church of Santa Maria Maggiore, off to the walk that has become a must today. The evocative nocturnal encounter in the company of the ghosts that populate the city will begin with the exploration of the historic center through the stories of the characters of the Florentine tradition. These include the Berta, a petrified female head that protrudes on one side of Santa Maria Maggiore, Ginevra degli Amieri, buried alive, and the violent adventurer Baldaccio D'Anghiari, who was defenestrated from Palazzo Vecchio. Legends, mysteries, stories of love and revenge in the places that remember them and that bring with them a sense of terror and darkness, an ancient unmentionable fear to end with a "trick or treat" for everyone.

Appointments are by reservation required at 055-5520407 or at .
