Description

Start your day by meeting your fun and informative guide at the designated meeting point. From here, your guide will lead you on a fascinating walking tour along the streets and piazzas of Florence, exploring the city’s rich history. At the historical Palazzo Strozzi you can examine the perfectly preserved courtyard, and also see the lesser known, but no less impressive Palazzo Davanzati, a truly marvellous example of a Medieval Palace. Passing by the renowned 'Porcellino' (little pig) market, you'll head to the famous Ponte Vecchio, the city’s oldest bridge, built in the 1300s. Whilst appreciating the stunning views of the hills that surround Florence, you will get the opportunity to listen to insights into the bridge’s history, and the famous Vasari Corridor that dramatically changed the shops built on the bridge. You will also visit Piazza della Signoria - the political heart of the city. The Uffizi Gallery, formerly the offices of the Grand Duke, is located on one side of the square and on the other side, Palazzo Vecchio, the former home of the Florentine government. After a pleasant wander through the oldest parts of the city where you can admire tower houses from the 1300s, you'll enter Piazza Duomo where the imposing Duomo (Cathedral of Florence) is located, with its original marble decoration and Brunelleschi's dome, an architectural triumph and a symbol of the Florentine Renaissance, both for its unique design and also the architectural achievement itself. The tour ends in front of the Baptistery with its stunning Porta del Paradiso, along with Giotto's bell tower, a perfect example of 12th-century architecture. You will be totally enchanted by Florence and benefit from your guide’s suggestions to enjoy the rest of your stay.
