What to expect

The first part of the tour is devoted to the heart of Florence, its historic center and its wonderful squares and landmarks: start with an enlightening walking tour led by a local guide who will unveil every corner of Florence, the so-called cradle of the Renaissance.

Starting from San Firenze Square, where one of the finest examples of Florentine residential architecture of the fifteenth century stands, you will reach the stunning Basilica di Santa Croce in the namesake historic square. This Franciscan church is one of the best achievements of Italian Gothic style and is also known as the Temple of Italian Glories, as it's the final resting place of such Italian artists as Michelangelo, Galileo Galilei and Niccolò Machiavelli.

Walking along the south riverside of Arno (Lungarno Torrigiani), your eyes will be feasted with the magnificent view of Ponte Vecchio, one of the symbols of Florence: learn about its incredible history and how it has been spared from the bombings during World War II. Follow your professional guide to Signoria Square, the unique heart of the city’s social life, to admire the imposing architecture of Palazzo Vecchio and the famous statues of Loggia de' Lanzi, among which the magnificent Perseus by Cellini.

The tour ends inside the world-famous Uffizi Gallery, where you will see unique Renaissance masterpieces by the greatest Italian artists. Get involved in an exciting celebration of beauty admiring unmatched works of art such as Botticelli's Birth of Venus, Leonardo's Annunciation and Michelangelo's Tondo Doni, to name a few. At the end of the guided tour, you can stay in the Uffizi Gallery until closing time.
