Description

Enjoy an intimate experience without paying a fortune for a private tour on this informative and original walking tour. Join a small group of maximum 10 people to wander the streets of Florence while learning about the city's unique history and artistic and architectural heritage. Learn about the city’s origins, the construction of the Duomo and its famous dome, and the lives of the extraordinary historical figures of Florence. Stroll through the impressive Piazza della Signoria with the towering Palazzo Vecchio and take in a gorgeous view of the famous Ponte Vecchio. The tour culminates with a guided visit inside the Basilica of Santa Croce to admire the beautiful frescoes, sculptures, and tombs of Michelangelo, Galileo, and others. Your carefully-tailored experience of Florentine culture and history passes through Via de’ Martelli, the Duomo Square, Piazza della Repubblica, Orsanmichele, Perchè No Gelato in via dei Tavolini (where you can refresh yourself with a gelato), Piazza della Signoria and view of Ponte Vecchio, Via dei Leoni (passing Galileo museum), Borgo dei Greci with a detour to pass the former site of Michelangelo’s house in Via de’ Bentaccordi, Via dell’Anguillara, and finally Santa Croce Basilica. Besides respecting the sites you visit by traveling in a small group and keeping numbers manageable in typically overcrowded places, your participation in this tour directly benefits the artistic heritage of Florence. Enjoy knowing that part of the proceeds from your tour will be donated to organizations dedicated to the preservation and restoration of the works of art and cultural sites visited on our tours.
