Florence City Tour
From the hotel your guide will meet you for a three hour walking tour of Florence. The center of Florence will be the spectacular frame of a tour devoted to the city’s glorious past and also to its interesting present life. The most important monuments of Florence will be introduced to you through the slow paced walking tour. Begin at the Cathedral with the renowned Dome by Brunelleschi and the gold “Paradise” doors of the Baptistry. You will pass some fashionable shops, see elegant palaces and walk through the delightful narrow medieval streets. Continue on to Piazza Signoria, which since the 1300’s, when Florence was considered the wealthiest city in Europe, has been the political complex of Florence. Walk to Ponte Vecchio, the bridge which draws so much interest, not only for its distinctive and charming appearance, but also for the marvellous jewelry shops that line the bridge. End the tour at the Accademia Gallery of Fine Arts Museum where you will have the occasion to admire the timeless Florence masterpiece: Michelangelo’s David (plus a few of his other pieces).
