Tour Itinerary

What will I see?

Experience and learn about all of the spectacular sights and masterpieces of Florence in one day, with our guided tour of the city's museums and masterpieces.
You will enjoy a range of iconic work by famous Florentine artists and get a first-hand look at the wonderful culture this city has to offer.

What will I do?

Our day in the Old Town of Florence begins with a visit to the Uffizi Gallery, where you can admire numerous works of art by Botticelli, Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci, Raffaello, Giotto, Cimabue, Masaccio and many others. Among the precious exhibition halls of the Gallery, the most renowned one contains the refined works by Botticelli, amongst which the absolute masterpieces are: "Primavera" and "Birth of Venus".

Then we proceed to the visit of the famous Accademia Gallery, where some of Michelangelo's iconic works are housed, including the celebrated David, I Prigioni, San Matteo, and the Palestrina Pietà. The young Michelangelo crafted David from a single large block of marble in just three years, and it stands today as a beautiful sculpture and an icon of the Renaissance model. It depicts a nude young man at the height of his physical vigor, displaying strength and courage that originated from an absolute faith in God.
He further uses roses as a symbol of power and the invincibility of the Florentine Republic at the time, when it was at its maximum splendor and influence.

The afternoon will take you to the historic center of the Old Town, led by an experienced guide. We'll begin at the Loggia del Bigallo, which overlooks the Piazza Duomo and its many spectacular pieces of medieval architecture that make up the religious heart of the city. Dominating the scene is the Duomo with its beautiful and world-renowned Brunelleschi's Dome, which is higher and wider than any constructed in that era.
Next, we'll visit the Baptistery of San Giovanni with the Porta del Paradiso (Gates of Paradise). This is one of the very oldest buildings in the city, and the magnificent Porta del Paradiso depict biblical scenes in gilded panels. Finally we'll walk around to the Giotto's bell tower, the most exquisite in all of Italy with its bells that date back as far as the early 18th century.
We'll continue our walking tour along vibrant Via Calzaioli in the middle of the historic town, where you'll be able to stop at the beautiful and awe-inspiring Orsanmichele Church, a masterpiece of Florentine Gothic art. It is decorated with shrines and imposing statues of the patron saints belonging to the powerful medieval trade guilds, all in unforgettable detail.

The next stop is the vibrant straw market, the Mercato della Paglia, where you're invited to rub the nose of the bronze boar and throw a coin into the fountain for good luck.
Moving on, we'll admire the picturesque Ponte Vecchio. This romantic bridge, recognized the world over and the oldest in the town, boasts an array of fine jewelry shops.
Finally, we get to Piazza Signoria which is one of the most beautiful squares in the world and the political center of Florence.
You will be amazed by the sheer beauty of the Fountain of Neptune with its incredible marble statue by Ammannati. In this outdoor museum, you will see elegant sculptural masterpieces of the Loggia dei Lanzi, including Cellini's Perseus with the Head of Medusa and Gianbologna's Rape of the Sabines. You will also see the majestic town hall, the Palazzo Vecchio, with the crenelated Arnolfo tower, an iconic landmark on the Florence skyline.

Why should I go?

If you have a passion for European Renaissance history, the architecture and museums of the Old Town in Florence are unmissable.
This informative and engaging walking tour will allow you to experience the world famous landmarks and artworks that have made Florence an enduring symbol of the Renaissance.
