The photo above displays the sites you will visit on this tour.
The content for this web-page based tour was originally developed for a walking tour app on the iOS and Android platforms.
The app was downloaded in 44 countries starting in 2014.
The app is no longer available in the app stores, but instead has been converted to these web pages, so they will work on all devices.
We created a second walking tour called Renaissance, Mannerist and Baroque, which will be available on this site in the very near future.
