Why this tour?
An afternoon city tour among art, quaint streets and the most beautiful paintings in the world.
The first part of the tour is devoted to the heart of Florence, its historic centre and its wonderful squares and landmarks: we start with an enlightening walking tour led by a local guide who will unveil every corner of the cradle of the Renaissance.
Starting from PIAZZA SAN FIRENZE, where one of the finest examples of Florentine residential architecture of the fifteenth century stands, you will then reach the stunning Basilica di SANTA CROCE standing in the namesake historic square.
This Franciscan church is actually 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 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 PIAZZA DELLA SIGNORIA, 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 stands.
The tour finishes inside the world famous UFFIZI GALLERY, where you can stand and admire the unique Renaissance masterpieces of the great Italian artists, where you will be involved in an exciting celebration of beauty, admiring such works of art 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 remain in the Uffizi Gallery until closing time.
