Walking Tour of Florence

Tour Description

This walking tour is the most classic of the tours that one can experience when in Florence. It is perfect if this is your first time in the birthplace of the Renaissance. And even better if you have been before as it will reacquaint the foundations of Florence. It will be your way to experience the city in the palm of your hands, to realize how small it was, and yet one of the biggest cities in the world in that period.

Walking in one of the largest pedestrian areas of Europe, you will be fascinated by how beauty abounds, as history is set in stone, as the Church becomes power, as politics transfigure into religion.

This experience will not be only historical and artistically-oriented but provide you with the opportunity to discover the daily life of the florentines and the way they interact with their heritage.

The tour will cover the main sites of the “Quartiere di San Giovanni”, the oldest part of the city, such as the Duomo, our local cathedral, surmounted by the astonishing Brunelleschi’s Dome; the octagonal Baptistry named after St. John and world-wide known for its golden Gate of Paradise; the Piazza Repubblica, former Ghetto of the city; the Orsanmichele church, a hidden gem of art and business; the Piazza Signoria, the icon of italian piazzas, an impressive open air museum; the Ponte Vecchio, undoubtedly the symbol of the city and the most expensive “meat market” of the world.
