TOUR ITINERARY

Your guide will meet you in front of the Accademia Gallery or your hotel, if central located,  for a three hour walking tour of Florence. The city’s ancient centre will be the spectacular frame for this walking tour dedicated to Florence’s glorious past as well as its vibrant modern life. The slow pace will allow you to discover and enjoy the most important monuments of the birthplace of the Renaissance.

You will begin at the Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore, the famed Duomo whose dome built by Brunelleschi dominates the skyline. Nearby is the Baptistry of San Giovanni, renowned for its golden doors but especially the one nicknamed “Porta del Paradiso”, an exquisite beauty. 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.
