    Duration: 2 hours

    Pass By: Ponte Vecchio, 50125, Florence Italy

    The Ponte Vecchio ("Old Bridge", Italian pronunciation: [ˈponte ˈvɛkkjo])[1][2] is a medieval stone closed-spandrel segmental arch bridge over the Arno River, in Florence, Italy, noted for still having shops built along it, as was once common. Butchers initially occupied the shops; the present tenants are jewelers, art dealers, and souvenir sellers.

    Pass By: Piazza della Signoria, 50122, Florence Italy

    Piazza della Signoria is an L-shaped square in front of the Palazzo Vecchio in Florence, Italy. It was named after the Palazzo della Signoria, also called Palazzo Vecchio. It is the main point of the origin and history of the Florentine Republic and still maintains its reputation as the political focus of the city. It is the meeting place of Florentines as well as the numerous tourists, located near Palazzo Vecchio and Piazza del Duomo and gateway to Uffizi Gallery.

    Stop At: Basilica di Santa Croce, Piazza Santa Croce 16, Florence Italy

    The Basilica di Santa Croce (Basilica of the Holy Cross) is the principal Franciscan church in Florence, Italy, and a minor basilica of the Roman Catholic Church. It is situated on the Piazza di Santa Croce, about 800 meters south-east of the Duomo. The site, when first chosen, was in marshland outside the city walls. It is the burial place of some of the most illustrious Italians, such as Michelangelo, Galileo, Machiavelli, the poet Foscolo, the philosopher Gentile and the composer Rossini, thus it is known also as the Temple of the Italian Glories (Tempio dell'Itale Glorie).

    Duration: 30 minutes

    Pass By: Duomo - Cattedrale di Santa Maria del Fiore, Via della Canonica, 1 Piazza del Duomo, 50122, Florence Italy

    Florences Duomo stands tall and proud of the city keeping the glory of Renaissance alive even today. Being a large and complex structure, it was not a work of one man. The cathedral was started at the end of 13th century by Arnolfo di Cambio. However, the Duomo part which overtakes most of the exterior was added by Filippo Brunelleschi in the 15th century. You can find the statues of both architects outside the cathedral, on the right.

    Our tour was well arranged and Julia was full of very interesting information. Along with the art history, we learned about the culture surrounding each piece and artist at that time in history. I especially liked learning about the Medici family and their influence.
