Florence Nightingale Tour to Florence April 2022 – In the steps of Florence Nightingale
20 – 23 April 2022
Having sadly had to postpone this tour not only from September 2020 but again this year in September, we are delighted to announce that this exciting trip will now go ahead from 20 – 23 April 2022. This of course is with the proviso that no further outbreaks of the pandemic occur either in the UK or Italy and that travel restrictions are lifted. This nursing study tour, running in conjunction with the Nightingale Fellowship, is designed to commemorate the anniversary of Florence Nightingale’s birth with a visit to the historic city that is both her namesake and her birthplace. Explore the beautiful Renaissance city of Florence on a three-night tour, which includes two dinners to enjoy the cuisine of Florence.
A brief outline of the itinerary is that we fly to Florence, and take a private orientation walking tour of this lovely city, perched on the banks of the Arno River in Tuscany, with our art historian guide. Discover the Roman origins of Florence and wander its medieval and Renaissance streets through to Piazza della Signoria. See the famous Duomo and the Basilica di Santa Croce, where Galileo is buried. The tour will also include a visit to the Villa Colombaia, the elegant villa where Florence was born and an afternoon visit to La Specola, one of the oldest scientific museums in Europe and the ornate pharmacy of Santa Maria Novella, one of the oldest pharmacies in the world. We will also be able to explore the great symbol of Florence at the Museum of the Duomo, which is attached to the 600-year old cathedral and includes some masterpieces of Italian art history. See the Basilica of Santa Maria del Fiore, the third largest European basilica, after St. Peter’s in Rome and St. Paul’s in London; the Baptistery with the gates that Michelangelo described as the “Gates of Paradise”; and the Crypt of Santa Reparata. We can also climb the 400 steps to reach the top of Giotto’s Bell Tower for wonderful views.
Please book early to avoid disappointment. This tour remains very popular with those who registered for the 2020 tour and have already transferred their bookings to 2021.
