DescriptionMeet your local guide and an intimate group of 15 persons to start your tour at 17:00 in central Florence. From there, explore Dante’s old neighborhood, gape at the massive dome of the Florence Duomo and pause at Michelangelo’s house and the lovely Santa Croce Church. You’ll also pass the world-famous Sant’Ambrogio Market - a spot that all serious foodies return to for lunch at least once during their stay. Next, stop in the Piazza della Signoria to marvel at the many statues that decorate it, including the famous replica of Michelangelo’s David. Dwarfing them all is the Palazzo Vecchio, the home of Florence’s government during the Renaissance and still one of the city’s most impressive buildings. From there, you’ll head across the iconic Ponte Vecchio Bridge and into one of the most interesting neighborhoods, the Oltrarno, to see where locals eat and hang out. You’ll also be introduced to less visited gems like the Palazzo Pitti and Piazza Santo Spirito, along with the birthplace and portrait of Lisa Gherardini, the woman who modeled for da Vinci’s iconic Mona Lisa. After 2.5-hours and a delicious scoop of Florentine gelato on your guide, you’ll know your way around the city and have a mental map of the spots you want to come back and visit when you have more time. Your guide will also offer plenty of advice and restaurant recommendations to help you plan for the coming days.
