Know More about this tour

Take a fun and informative 2.5 hour walking tour through the streets and squares of Florence with a local expert guide, who will explain you the history of the city and the wonders of the Renaissance in a journey through the key masterpieces of the Florentine architecture.
This tour is a great introduction to the city and takes you to all the highlights, monuments, squares, markets.

Stop at the Church of Santa Croce and walk inside its marvelous cloister, then go ahead to Piazza dei Peruzzi and Bargello Palace, a great example of Medieval architecture not often included in guided tours. Walking by the Porcellino (little pig) market, you’ll reach Ponte Vecchio, the most ancient bridge in Florence ,dating back to the fourteenth century.

Feast your eyes on the heart-stopping view over the hills that circle Florence, and then listen to a detailed description of the bridge’s history and the Vasari Corridor, which radically modified the shops (botteghe) placed on the bridge.

Later on, the tour reaches the political heart of Florence, Piazza della Signoria. On one side, you will enjoy the renowned Uffizi Gallery, once the Great Duke’s headquarters, then admire Palazzo Vecchio, the historic seat of the Florentine Government, on the other side of the square.

After an enjoyable diversion that will let you admire the medieval tower houses of the oldest part of Florence, you will reach to the stunning Piazza Duomo, with breath-taking views of the Florence Cathedral and its perfectly preserved, unique marble engravings, and the Brunelleschi’s Dome above all, a miracle of architecture, symbol of the Renaissance movement in Florence due its daring design and even more challenging realization.

Here you will see also Giotto’s bell tower, a perfect prototype of the 1300’s architecture, and the Baptistery, to admire its magnificent Porta del Paradiso. The tour will end in front of the church of San Lorenzo so you will be able to explore on your own the surrounding market.

  • The tour was informative, however, the tour guide never kept her promise to reimburse for my wife's portion because my wife came down with a fever and was still recovering from her hospital stay.

  • Knowledgeable guide, amazing city, small group.
    Appropriate duration, extraordinary informative.

  • Emiliana with Raphael Tours did a great job organizing the walk. The two and a half hours walk was amazing, lots of history.

  • This tour was great! Instead of being marched around in a huge group like all the other tourists that we saw, we had a small group where it is much more interesting and informative. The guide was awesome and had some really great recommendations. I would recommend to anyone heading to Florence!!
