A walk along the city to discover the Galilean main sites: from his birthplace to the Square of the Duomo where the scientist conducted some of his main experiments. We will walk in the past through the Medieval and the Renaissance periods. We will pass by the Royal Palace and the Tower della Verga d’Oro: Galileo showed the infinite universe to the Grand Duke Cosimo the 1st through the telescope from the top of it.
We will trace the phases of the Galilean studies visiting the ancient courtyard of the Sapienza, the curious Piazza dei Cavalieri di Santo Stefano with the prestigious Scuola Normale Superiore and the neoclassic Piazza dei Martiri della Libertà with the church dedicated to S. Cristina dating back to the 13th Century.
We will look at the city trough the Galileo’s eyes to discover a multifaceted city made by galleries, gardens and elegant commercial roads.
We will end our tour at the base of the Bell Tower: the famous leaning tower.
