What to expect

Begin your tour by visiting the most important buildings in the heart of Florence. The guide will give you an insight into the history of the city and how the incredible cultural movement of the Renaissance transformed not only Florence but eventually the rest of Europe. The guide will start off at Piazza Della Republica, the main square of Florence that marks the center of the city. After a little talk of history about the changes of Piazza Republica has seen over time, you will walk straight to the marvelous piece of art, the Piazza del Duomo. A real showstopper of Filippo Brunelleschi, Giotto, Arnolfo and Francesco Talenti.

Walk past the Duomo Square and let your guide show you the old buildings as well as some of the historical landmarks of Florence such as Palazzo Vecchio, where the sculpture of David by Michelangelo (the original is in the Galleria dell'Accademia) is placed as a symbol of the Republic's defiance of the tyrannical Medici family. Afterwards, as you walk past the Palazzo Vecchio, the guide will give you information about the Uffizi Gallery, one of the greatest museums in the world, and then you will reach the most famous old bridge of Florence known as Ponte Vecchio.

Your next stop is Palazzo Pitti by Filippo Brunelleschi, one of Florence's largest architectural monuments and the household of Pitti family, later of Medici. Finally, the guide will talk you through the artists, architects, thinkers and political figures born on the fertile soil in and around Florence who led to the Renaissance.

This tour package includes an aperitivo (happy hour) at Caffe Gilli: enjoy a spritz, prosecco or soft drink and nibbles.
