“My guests at Casetta want experiences to immerse themselves into the art, beauty and culture of Italy, hence how the Renaissance art tour idea was born. Antonella is an expert in her field, leading bespoke tours for 25 years in Florence for groups and private clients. The Renaissance was born in Florence. It was our most flourishing period in art, literature and culture. Guests will gain such an appreciation through Antonella’s expert guidance in an enjoyable fashion,” said Xenia Lemos, owner, Casetta Firenze.


During the five-day art tour, guests travel to spectacular sites throughout Florence and Oltrarno, visiting monasteries, churches, museums and other historic spots to see Renaissance masterpieces and other periods’ works, from greats like Leonardo Da Vinci, Michelangelo and Botticelli.
