Itinerary
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Piazza santa croce, Florence, Tuscany

A licensed expert guide will lead you on a fascinating walking tour through the streets and piazzas of Florence, a tour that will trace the history of the city, and in particular the times of the Renaissance through the numerous important monuments that line its route.
At the stunning Palazzo Strozzi admire the perfectly preserved courtyard, and then discover off-the-beaten-track the precious Palazzo davanzati, an excellent example of a Medieval Palace. Passing by the famous "Porcellino" (little pig) market, you'll arrive at the Ponte Vecchio, the oldest bridge in Florence dating back to the 1300's.
While admiring breath-taking views of the hills that surround Florence, enjoy a detailed discussion on the history of the bridge, and the Vasari Corridor that dramatically changed the shops located on the bridge.
Then, you will visit the political center of the city in Piazza della signoria. With the Uffizi Gallery on one side that used to house the Grand Duke's offices, and Palazzo Vecchio on the other side, that was once the seat of the Florentine government.
After a pleasant detour through one of the oldest parts of the city to admire tower houses from the 1300's, you'll emerge into Piazza Duomo to enjoy a magnificent view of The duomo (Cathedral of Florence) that maintains its unique marble decoration and above all Brunelleschi's dome, an architectural miracle and symbol of the Florentine Renaissance movement for both its bold design and even more daring realization.
The tour ends in front of the Baptistery with its magnificent Porta del paradiso, along with Giotto's bell tower, an excellent example of architecture from the 1300's. You will fall in love with Florence and profit from the precious suggestions of your guide.
