The Tour of Empoli

A meeting place and the most elegant area in town, the “Tour of Empoli” is a walk, or a stroll through the town. It included Piazza Farinata degli Uberti, Canto Pretorio, Via Giuseppe Del Papa, Via Cosimo Ridolfi and Via del Giglio.

Until just a few years ago, men would walk along this route in an anticlockwise direction, to the right, if we take the façade of the Collegiate Church as a reference point, while the women would walk in the opposite direction: that way, they could look each other in the face when they met!
