CITY OF THE TOWERS AND THE RENAISSANCE: GUIDED TOUR TO DISCOVER FLORENCE’S SECRETS

Have you just arrived in Florence and do you want a tour to orient yourself in the city, to know its history, the curiosities, the restaurants frequented by the Florentines? Join us on this walking tour!

Our first stop will be the courtyard of the Uffizi Gallery and Piazza della Signoria, where the imposing Palazzo Vecchio stands, seat of the city government; the stories behind the works of art under the Loggia dei Lanzi will be enveiled, and you will discover many anecdotes about the city emblem of the Renaissance. From there we will reach the Franciscan church of Santa Croce, renowned for the funeral monuments of Dante Alighieri, Michelangelo, Galileo Galilei and many other illustrious Italians.

Following the external path of the Vasari Corridor we will cross Ponte Vecchio to admire Palazzo Pitti, the palace of the Medici family first and then the residence of the King of Italy. Your guide will let you discover the most authentic part of Florence, the Oltrarno and the district of Santo Spirito, famous for its craft shops.

Did you know that in the Middle Ages Florence had more tower houses than San Gimignano?

How did the transition from the tower house to palaces happen? From the Ponte Santa Trinita we will reach Via Tornabuoni, the fashion street, and Palazzo Strozzi, a sumptuous example of Renaissance architecture.

After a stop in Piazza della Repubblica, our guided tour will continue towards Piazza del Duomo where you will admire the colorful marble decoration of the Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore, Giotto's Bell Tower and the scenes of the Baptistery's Paradise Gate.
