Mornings in Florence is the title of a book by John Ruskin, the British critic who rediscovered Florentine art during a time of deep social, political and economic changes. When Ruskin was asked why he would speak of art in a time of revolutions and wars, he answered, “Why not? Wars may come and go but art stays”.
The aim of the Mornings in Florence tours is to provide a unique and privileged standpoint on Florence and its treasures. We firmly believe that art, history and culture must be looked into from new, original and unconventional angles. This is why we are not afraid to push ourselves off the beaten track to give our clients an unforgettable experience.
Our inspiration is Ruskin’s idealism. A new way of thinking about the past in order to change the present.
