A guided walking tour Florence discovering the main attractions such as Piazza della Signoria, the Ponte Vecchio, Michelangelo's David and hidden gems of this magic city. Possibility for private tour upgrade.

  • See classic Florence, the Oltrarno art district, and Via Tornabuoni shops
  • Learn about the city’s rich history and heritage from a local guide
What to Expect
Greet your guide and your small group in the city center and start your tour with two of Florence’s greatest squares: ancient Piazza della Repubblica and sculpture-filled Piazza della Signoria. Admire the jewelry stalls along the Ponte Vecchio (medieval stone bridge), learn the unique history of the Vasari Corridor above it, and visit the Palazzo Pitti, once home to Florence’s rulers.

Next, explore Oltrarno, Florence’s bohemian district with its artists, workshops, and cafés. Grab a classic shot of the Ponte Vecchio from the Ponte Santa Trinita and then continue along Via Tornabuoni, Florence’s fashion and window-shopping mecca.

After admiring Palazzo Strozzi, Florence Cathedral (the Duomo), and the Baptistery, walk to the Accademia Gallery and skip the line to see Michelangelo’s original David, a world-famous sculpture. Your guide will tell you the secrets behind the statue and Michelangelo’s life, before your tour wraps up outside.
