Florence, the world renowned city of art and culture, is the venue for our April Renaissance Painting & Drawing holiday. Steeped in the works of Giotto, Masaccio, Leonardo and Michelangelo, Florence is a painter’s dream come true.
In the quiet free-spirited artisan area of San Frediano, situated on the south bank of the River Arno, our guests will stay at Casa Santo Nome di Gesu, a 15th century Palace and once home of Franciscan missionaries. This tranquil and elegant venue is perfectly placed in the quieter quarters of the city, 10 minutes walk from the Piazza del Duomo, the Ponte Vecchio, Palazzo Pitti and the Boboli Gardens.
The course will start with a sketching tour of Florence through the streets of Altrarno, across the Ponte Santa Trinita, passing Palazzo Stronzi, to the church of Santa Maria Novella.
You will paint at:
For non-painters we are able to offer excellent sight seeing tours with an experienced Florentine guide.
Chris Bell & Tony Phillips will be tutoring this course. Please see Art Toscana in Tuscany for tutor profiles.
