Know More about this tour

Meet your guide in central Florence in the late afternoon and set off on an informative walk through the historical center as evening falls. Inspired by the Italian ritual of la passeggiata (an evening stroll), this walk will provide the perfect introduction to the real Florence as you follow in the footsteps of locals.

Begin in Piazza della santissima annunziata, a major city square thats home to the Ospedale degli Innocenti, a one-time orphanage designed by the great Renaissance architect Brunelleschi early in his career. Next, amble along Via dei Servi, a street lined with cafes and shops, before arriving at Brunelleschis jewel and the citys most famous monument, The duomo. Circle around the exterior of the famous cathedral and discuss its importance and significance with your guide. Youll also learn about the nearby Baptistery and the evolution of Florentine art and history.

Where you go next can change, depending on the preferences of the group and your particular guide. Perhaps check out Piazza della signoria and the mighty Palazzo vecchio, which once housed the rulers of the Florentine Republic. Or continue on to Piazza della repubblica, the location of the Roman citys forum and now a popular meeting place with multiple cafes, markets and street performers. Your guide may also point out some lesser-known historical sites along the way.
Depending on the group's preferences, you may stop for a glass of wine or a scoop of gelato and watch the city transform as night falls. As you drink or eat, chat with your guide about other aspects of Florentine life, such as fashion, food and everyday life in the city.

Having gained a greater understanding of Florence and the Florentine way of life, part ways with your guide in central Florence.
