What to expect

An unforgettable guided walk in the center of a UNESCO World Heritage city, to learn about the history, curiosities, characters and anecdotes of Florence, an elegant jewel city famous throughout the world. Once the cradle of the Renaissance and Capital of Italy.

The first stop will be the courtyard of the Uffizi Gallery and Piazza della Signoria, where you'll find the imposing Palazzo Vecchio, the historic seat of government of the city and place of artistic disputes of Michelangelo and Leonardo da Vinci. You will be told about the allegories regarding the wonderful works of art under the Loggia dei Lanzi and you will discover many anecdotes about the emblem of the city.

From there you will reach the famous square of Santa Croce with its church, famous for the funeral monuments of Dante Alighieri, Michelangelo, Galileo Galilei and many other well-known Italians.

Following the external route of the Vasari Corridor you will cross the famous Ponte Vecchio, with its unique goldsmith's shops, rebuilt after the tragic flood of 1966, and then reach the wonderful Palazzo Pitti, the building that was the residence of the Medici family first and then of the King of Italy.

Your guide will then let you discover the most authentic part of Florence, the Oltrarno and the district of S. Frediano di Santo Spirito, famous all over the world for their artisan shops and for the ancient tower houses still intact.

From Ponte Santa Trinita you will reach Via Tornabuoni, the street considered the 'fashion lounge', and Palazzo Strozzi, a sumptuous example of splendid Renaissance architecture.

After a stop in Piazza della Repubblica, your guided tour will continue to Piazza del Duomo where you can admire the colorful marble decoration of the Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore, with the amazing Brunelleschi's Dome, Giotto's Bell Tower and the precious gold tiles of the Gates of Paradise of the Baptistery.

Your guide will greet you after pointing you to the famous San Lorenzo Market, known for its fun shopping and traditional street food.
