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.

  • Top tour to strat your Florence sightseeing

  • Tour provided an interesting tour around the city, highlighting main buildings and places and commenting on their architecture and history.

  • This tour was amazing!

  • Martina was incredible. There wasn't a single question the group threw at her that she didn't respond in a detailed manner. We loved her. Would highly recommend.

  • Our tour guide was Mario. We had only 4 in our tour group so it was very nice. Mario was animated and energetic and a native of Florence. He enlightened us on various architectural aspects of the city. We even danced to street musicians that actually played at his wedding! This was a good tour!

  • Really informative, sensible walking pace, small group with local guide with perfect english, would book again.

  • Due to th e heat, we did not do this tour .

  • This was a great way to see Florence if you're limited on time like we were. You don't get to go in many places, but it gives you an idea of where to go back to. The tour guide was really good at making up facts on the spot, but the other couple probably didn't notice so I think she's not been called out for it. Either way, we took it with a grain of salt, had a blast, and actually did learn quite a bit. I'd do it again for sure.

  • 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.
