Description

Begin your tour in the main square where the famous soccer game in medieval costumes, the Calcio Storico Florentino, takes place every year in June. Learn about the city's history and the incredible life of Michelangelo as your guide gives you a detailed description of the immense artistic wealth in Santa Croce.  Admire the 14th century frescoes by Gaddi in the Cappella Maggiore as well as the beautiful frescoes by Giotto in the Bardi and Peruzzi Chapels which show scenes from the life of St. Francis and St. John the Evangelist. Hear the story of the meaning behind the name 'Santa Croce.'  After the tour of Santa Croce, you will be driven to Piazza Michelangelo, one of Florence's most romantic spots. Go on a brief walking tour of piazza before you prepare yourself for an onsite personal photoshoot. Later, get transported back to Piazza Della Republica for a cozy lunch at Pesce Rosso. Then head to the Piazza Della Duomo for the final tour of the day. After seeing the Duomo from all sides, all you need to do to complete the experience is a climb to the top of the cupola. The exterior view of the cupola is a showstopper but the only way to see the inside of the dome up close and enjoy the extraordinary view over Florence is to climb its 463 steps (there is no elevator). Be enchanted by the panoramic view of the city from the top. Listen as your guide outlines the history and art of the Duomo Square and answers any of your questions regarding Duomo.
