Description

One of our Licensed Expert Guides will lead you on a fascinating guided walking tour through the streets and piazzas of Florence that will trace the history of the city, and in particular the times of the Renaissance through the numerous important monuments that line its route.

At the stunning Palazzo Strozzi admire the perfectly preserved courtyard, and then discover off-the-beaten-track the precious Palazzo Davanzati that's an excellent example of a Medieval Palace. Passing by the famous "Porcellino" (little pig) market, you'll arrive at the Ponte Vecchio, the oldest bridge if Florence dating the 1300's.

Florence Walking Tour While admiring breath-taking views of the hills that surround Florence, enjoy a detailed discussion on the history of the bridge, and the Vasari Corridor that dramatically changed "botteghe" (shops) located on the bridge.

Then, our guided walking tour of Florence visits the political centre of the city in Piazza della Signoria. With the Uffizi Gallery on one side that used to house the Grand Duke's offices, and the Palazzo Vecchio on the other that was once the seat of Florentine government.

After a pleasant detour through one of the oldest parts of the city to admire tower houses from the 1300's, you'll emerge into Piazza Duomo to enjoy a magnificent views of the Duomo (Cathedral of Florence) that maintains its unique marble decoration and above all Brunelleschi's dome, an architectural miracle and symbol of Florentine Renaissance movement for both its bold design and even more daring realization.

The tour ends in front of the Baptistry with it's magnificent Porta del Paradiso, along with Giotto's bell tower, an excellent example of architecture from the 1300's.
