What to expect

Discover two thousand years of history of the cradle of the Renaissance through the eyes of an expert local guide, who will show you the most beautiful squares and monuments of Florence. The city of the Renaissance is literally dotted with architectural wonders and works of art: joining this unforgettable tour you'll be able to admire with your own eyes the sites and monuments that have made Florence one of the most visited destinations in the world.

Start your enlightening guided promenade in Repubblica Square, one of the most elegant squares in Florence, where the most refined cafés of the city are located. Follow your guide through the most characteristic streets and alleys until you reach the Loggia del Mercato Nuovo, home to a delightful leather market, where you will find out how to win good luck caressing the nose of the famous Porcellino, the city’s statue of a piglet. At a stone throw, there is the suggestive Ponte Vecchio, a true icon of the city, which is famous for hosting the most exclusive jewelry stores of Florence and for its unique structure, and also for being the only bridge of the city spared from the bombings during the Second World War.

Then reach the Accademia dei Georgofili and the Uffizi Square, and discover the beating heart of Florence, Signoria Square, a real open-air museum dominated by the imposing Palazzo Vecchio and the magnificent Loggia dei Lanzi, which houses wonderful original statues including the Perseus by Cellini and the Rape of the Sabine Women by Giambologna. Your discovery of the wonders of Florence will culminate in San Giovanni Square, home of the wonderful Florence Cathedral with its Brunelleschi's Dome, the Baptistery and Giotto's Bell Tower.

If you are still not satisfied with so much art and beauty, you can continue the experience inside the Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore, literally skipping the long queues at the entrance and taking advantage of the company of your expert guide who will reveal all the secrets of this immense wealth of art and architecture.
