What to expect

A pleasant walk through Florence is just what you need to be introduced to the city and its splendor! Get the chance to discover the amazing center of Florence, to admire its unique secular heritage and breathtaking beauty with an expert tour guide. This tour will allow you to understand the historic and architectural evolution of the city, from the Roman foundation to the medieval centuries, from the Renaissance glorious period up to modern times.

Learn about the Medici, the masters of Florence. The Medici family rose to become famous and revered throughout the Western world during the 14th and 15th centuries. Although the Medici came to power at a time of great social and economic inequality, their banking practices allowed them to become unimaginably wealthy and led to the creation of the middle class. The members of the Medici family used their vast power and resources to challenge traditional thinking, massively contributing to the arousal of the Renaissance, an era of revolutions in arts and sciences such as the world had never known. This powerful story still resonates through every corner of the city.

Your guide will show you some of the most important places, where the greatest minds have been inspired. During this walk, you will manage to admire Piazza della Signoria with the town hall Palazzo Vecchio, the Duomo, the Baptistery and its Gates of Paradise, Giotto’s independent bell tower, Brunelleschi’s Dome, Santa Trinita, Orsanmichele Church, Ponte Vecchio and the secret Vasari corridor, as well as famous shopping streets and the Oltrarno, the manual crafts neighborhood. On your way, stop for a surprise tasting, a nice and delicious break from your walk.
