Know More about this tour

The appointment with your guide is in the heart of the city's historic center, the splendid Gothic Loggia del Bigallo overlooking Piazza Duomo. It is from here that your journey of discovery begins amoung the amazing complex of monuments that characterize the religious center of Florence. Witness the Cathedral with its incredible Brunelleschi's Dome, the Baptistery of San Giovanni with the Porta del Paradiso (Gates of Paradise) and the elegant Giotto's Bell tower, the loveliest in all of Italy.

The walk continues along the lively Via Calzaioli in the heart of the city, where you can admire the imposing and singular Orsanmichele Church, a masterpiece of Florentine gothic art, decorated with shrines with statues of the patron saints of the powerful medieval trade guilds. When you reach the bustling Mercato della Paglia (Straw Market), dont forget to rub the nose of the famous porcellino (pig) and toss a coin into the fountain to bring you good luck.

Continuing on, admire the romantic, picturesque Ponte Vecchio, the oldest bridge in Florence, with its renowned jewellery shops. Finally, arrive in Piazza Signoria, one of the most beautiful squares in the world and the political center of the city. In this true outdoor museum youll be amazed as you admire the beautiful Fountain of Neptune with the marvelous and imposing marble statue by Ammannati. Then, as you look around, you'll notice the sculptural masterpieces of the Loggia dei Lanzi, including the Cellinis Perseus and the Gianbolognas Rape of the Sabines. Dominating all this is the majestic Palazzo Vecchio, with its crenelated Arnolfo's Tower, one of the most famous symbols of Florence that you will be able to admire in all its magnificence.
