Florence Walking Tour
Your guided walking tour takes you through the streets and piazzas of Florence. You’ll see the Ponte Vecchio and learn the history of the oldest surviving bridge crossing the River Arno. After admiring Vasari’s Corridor, you’ll enter the Piazza della Signoria, Dante’s old neighborhood. Next, you’ll encounter a series of breathtaking examples of Renaissance architecture before arriving at the cathedral to admire Brunelleschi’s dome, Giotto’s bell tower and Ghiberti’s Gates of Paradise at the baptistery.
Along the way, your expert guide will discuss the rich history of the Renaissance. You’ll hear tales about the lives of the famous artists, as well as the notorious Medici family who financed the Renaissance movement, and you’ll learn how life changed forever during this epic period.
After taking a fascinating walking tour of Florence, you will skip the line at the famous Accademia Gallery to see the most treasured work of art in the whole of Florence Michelangelo’s sculpture of David.
After enjoying an in-depth discussion of David, you will also have time to see Michelangelo’s Slaves, writhing captives in stone who appear to struggle to free themselves from their imprisoning blocks of marble.
The tours are conducted by English-speaking guides who are passionate about Florence’s rich heritage of art and history.
