Guido, i’ vorrei che tu e Lapo ed io
fossimo presi per incantamento
e messi in un vasel, ch’ad ogni vento
per mare andasse al voler vostro e mio
Dante Alighieri – Sonetto - XIII Sec
My name is Lapo and comes directly from Dante (see above). I am a florentine architect and a running addict! I’ve run several marathons all around Europe and I think that discovering a town by running is something really special.
Florence is well known in the entire world for its artistic and architetural beauty. Florence city centre is UNESCO world heritage and has the ideal size to cover by running. The city centre is also a traffic restricted area which makes it a fabulous place for running. I would love to tell you much more about Florence as an architect and as florentine who knows the traditions and loves his city. With Go! Running Tours Florence you can discover hidden spots, typical places as well as anecdotes about the town, the food and the people.
