What to expect

Florence is not only the cradle of the Renaissance, the city of Dante and Michelangelo, the shining marbles of its cathedral and the incomparable art of Piazza della Signoria. Florence has so much more to it, such as the Oltrarno district with its many craft shops and laundry hanging outside windows, where even the Medici family chose to live in.

This combined tour gives you the chance to see the best of the city and sample some of its renowned culinary delights. Explore the historic, religious and political center of Florence with an experienced guide: see the Cathedral, Piazza della Signoria, Palazzo Vecchio and Ponte Vecchio. In the late afternoon, you'll continue on to the Arno's "left bank", the Oltrarno district.

Sip excellent Chianti wine accompanied by local salami and cheese on typical crostoni in Florence's most genuine neighborhood, where you'll discover the simple but delicious flavors of Florentine cuisine along with fascinating facts and stories about the extraordinary Medici family.

A tasting of baked delicacies, such as cantuccini (almond cookies), focaccia with olive oil and rosemary bread awaits you in the picturesque Santo Spirito Square before the grand finale: a fabulous artisanal gelato!
