Forget following your nose – perfume pro Caitlin Swanson and calligraphy artist Betty Soldi will be your guides through this fragrant tour.
Florentine history has never smelled this sweet: walk in the perfumed footsteps of the Renaissance masters on this olfactory tour. You’ll visit an incense-scented church, scout for your new favourite perfume and end the experience with a calligraphy workshop so you’ll be able to pen your own perfumed missives like Medici herself.
