What to expect

Make the most of your time in Florence with a 3-hour tour of the most important sites and monuments! Florence is not a very big city but its importance and the concentration of monuments and museums is truly amazing. It is hard to define the best itinerary to see everything in one day, so the best solution is joining this half day tour which will give you an overview of the historical center and its highlights. Meet your guide in a central spot of the city and explore Piazza della Republica, where the ancient Roman Forum originally was. Walk to Piazza della Signoria, the political heart of the city and listen to the history of the Florentine Republic, the Medici family and the Palazzo Vecchio. Admire the sculptures which makes this piazza one of most famous of the world. Proceed to the Ponte Vecchio and admire its jewelries, and hear the unique history of the Vasari Corridor, passing above it. Arrive to the Pitti palace once the private residence of the grand dukes and admire its splendor. Continue your walk though the Oltrarno, the bohemian area of Florence full of artists, workshops and lovely cafes. Cross the Ponte Santa Trinita and stop for a stunning picture to the ponte Vecchio from this side. The tour continue along Via Tornabuoni, the fashion designer street where you will be amazed by the beautiful windows. Pass through Palazzo Strozzi's courtyard and admire the essence of the Renaissance architecture. Continue your walk to the Duomo, and admire the Cathedral, Brunelleschi's Dome and the Baptistery. If the line is not too long, we will also see the inside but sometimes lines are so long and nobody here has the priority.
