Meet your guide near Piazza della Stazione in central Florence, and then set off on your 2.5-hour walking tour of the town. Head through the San Lorenzo neighborhood, an area known for its colorful markets and artist workshops. As you walk, listen to snippets of history and stories about the Tuscan capital.

Florences heyday is widely recognized as the Renaissance era when the notorious Medici dynasty ruled the roost. Being lovers of fine art as well as powerful and prosperous people, the Medici family nurtured some of the most eminent Italian artists, who left their artistic legacy firmly stamped on the city.

Wander past the Medici Chapels that were designed by Renaissance artists Michelangelo and Matteo Nigetti, and then gaze in admiration at the colossal Basilica of San Lorenzo, where prominent members of the Medici family are buried.

Continue to Florence Duomo, topped by the distinctive Brunelleschi's Dome. Learn about the cathedral while you walk around it, then visit Giottos Bell Tower and see Florence Baptistry.

Stroll through the citys medieval center to Palazzo del Bargello, an imposing-looking art gallery that once was a prison, and then explore Piazza della signoria Florences busy central square. Admire the array of sculptures strewn about the piazza, such as the Rape of the Sabine Women by Giambologna, an impressive statue outside the Uffizi gallery.

Pass Palazzo vecchio, the city hall, and continue past the New Market (Mercato nuovo) to see Il Porcellino, the citys much-loved bronze piglet statue. Stop to rub the statues nose for luck, and then wander back toward the river, cross the magnificent Ponte vecchio, and finish your tour by Pitti Palace.
