Esoteric Florence Walking Tour with Professional Guide

Firenze Trip Overview

Florence is full of esoteric symbols, magic signs that come from the past centuries from alchemy and Kabbalah. The facade of Santa Croce reveals its symbols and necromancy stories and the Baptistery – its palindrome. We will see Pazzino dei Pazzi and the stones from the Holy Sepulcher of Jerusalem, which on Easter day light up the traditional Explosion of the Cart in Florence.

We will analyse the arsenic poisoning and the death of the intellectual Pico della Mirandola in 1494, a very close friend of Lorenzo the Magnificent, who was very fascinated by the Kabbalah.

We will also meet Friar Girolamo Savonarola, the strictly religious Dominican hanged and burnt at the stake. And again stories of punishment, Templars and Cathars in Florence and children rejected because they were said to be born malformed because of the intervention of the evil one!

To bring us luck, we will try to count the mysterious bees… at least try to count them, as they are uncountable!
