TOUR ITINERARY

Your private guide will meet you in Piazza Ognissanti for a two and a half hour walking tour of the gorgeous Lungarni!

The Lungarni were built during the second half of the 19th century when Florence became, only for five years, the capital city of the newly born Italian Reign.

Your guide will unveil in front of your eyes the beauty of this city right from its heart: the Arno River. Here the Romans decide to erect a city; the marble used to build the beautiful edifices designed by Michelangelo and Brunelleschi arrived into the city by water!

Your tour will start from the beautiful Piazza Ognissanti where you can admire the gorgeous 12th century Church of Ognissanti, with its artworks from artists like Domenico Ghirlandaio and Sandro Botticelli. Heading south you will soon reach the Arno River; pass by Ponte della Carraia and you will find yourself walking through the elegant Lungarno Corsini, one of the most sophisticated place in Florence. Once you will reach the St. Trinity Bridge you will cross the river and visit Borgo San Jacopo with its unique houses that overlook the Arno. Your next stop will be Ponte Vecchio the most famous and photographed bridge in Florence! Here you will be able to admire the unique Corridoio Vasariano built in order to connect Palazzo Vecchio to Palazzo Pitti. Cross the bridge and walk by the Uffizi Gallery and many other beautiful Palaces and Churches until you will reach Ponte delle Grazie. Pass on the left bank, the Oltrarno, your last stop will be the beautiful Terrazza di Villa Bardini from which you will enjoy a breath-taking view of this incredible city!

TOUR ITINERARY

This full day excursion will take you on a fantastic journey to discover two of the most beautiful medieval towns of Tuscany: Siena and San Gimignano. Your first stop will be Siena which, along with Florence and Pisa, is one of the leading art cities in Tuscany. Throughout the centuries, this city has managed to preserve its handsome medieval character.

Your tour will begin with a visit to the Basilica of San Domenico, a 13th century Gothic church much frequented for its venerated relics of Saint Catherine, patron saint of Italy and Europe. You will continue to the Banca Monte dei Paschi, a magnificent palace-like bank that was founded in 1472; it is considered to be the oldest surviving bank in Europe and is in fact still active. From here, you will walk to the nearby Piazza del Campo, a shell-shaped square that is the undoubted center of Siena’s vibrant city life. As your guide will explain, this is where the famed and exhilarating Palio horse race takes place twice a year. Ten representatives from the seventeen districts of Siena will ride bareback around the Piazza at breakneck speeds for the chance to win the Palio. Following a brief stop at the Palazzo Chigi-Saracini, which houses the Accademia Musicale Chigiana, you will arrive at the Cathedral of Saint Mary of the Assumption, also known as the Duomo di Siena. This marvelous medieval cathedral made of white marble is one of Siena’s most impressive architectural wonders, a mixture of Classical, French Gothic and Tuscan Romanesque styles.

From here, you will have some free time in Siena. You can either keep exploring the city on your own or choose to have lunch in one of the delicious restaurants in the area. Just be sure to return on time to continue your tour to San Gimignano!

The town’s fourteen medieval towers are visible from a great distance, giving the hilltop settlement a remarkable and unforgettable skyline. Like Siena, San Gimignano is one of the best preserved medieval towns in Tuscany, boasting beautiful buildings such as churches and palazzos. The tour will take you to the wonderfully preserved main square called the Piazza della Cisterna, and there you will visit the 13th century the Palazzo del Popolo, San Gimignano’s town hall.

At the end of your visit meet your driver again to return to your accommodation in Florence.

As you continue the walking tour, you will see elegant palaces, fashionable shops and pass through a number of narrow but charming medieval streets. Piazza della Signoria, your next stop, has been the political complex of Florence since the 1300’s when Florence was considered the richest city in Europe. The L-shaped square is where you will find the Palazzo Vecchio, the Loggia dei Lanzi and, a few steps away, the Uffizi Gallery. Continue to Ponte Vecchio, an ancient bridge that spans the Arno River and is recognized the world over. This bridge attracts much curiosity not only for its unique and charming appearance but also for the fabulous jewelry shops that line both its sides. The tour will end at the Accademia Gallery of Fine Arts Museum where you will have the opportunity to admire the symbol and eternal masterpiece of Florence: Michelangelo’s David. The museum also houses several of Michelangelo’s other works and an impressive collection of pieces by other masters such as by Paolo Uccello, Domenico Ghirlandaio and Sandro Botticelli.

From here, you are free to explore the city on your own. We suggest relaxing in the nearby Botanical Gardens or, if you are feeling hungry, making your way back toward the Duomo of Firenze and trying one of the restaurants around the cathedral piazza.
