    What to Expect
    If you’re interested in the culture of Florence and the beauty of its architecture, join this 2-hour guided walking tour that takes in the most important monuments of this UNESCO World Heritage Site. The walking tour begins at the Piazza San Firenze; home of the Bargello and the Tribunale Fiorentino, once a church and convent complex and now home to the Florence courts.
    You'll walk first to the Church of Santa Croce, home to many well-known masterpieces and burial place of some of Italy's most important personages. Next you'll arrive at Piazza Signoria, the heart of the city of Florence since ancient times. It is famous for Neptune's Fountain, the Palazzo Vecchio, and the lovely Piazzale degli Uffizi.
    Cross the Ponte Vecchio; the medieval stone bridge famous for its gold jewelry shops, and arrive at the spectacular Pitti palace; former residence of the Medici family -- the ruling dynasty in Florence for nearly 300 years. You'll head back toward the Arno and the historic center along Via Maggio and Ponta Santa Trinita, the favorite bridge of many native Florentines, then pass along Via Tornabuoni where you will see some of Florence's top fashion boutiques.
    Stop at the Strozzi Palace; prototype of Renaissance architecture and then finish with the impressive Piazza Republica, built to celebrate the naming of Florence as the capital of a newly united Italy, and the magnificent Florence Cathedral crowned by Brunelleschi's innovative dome.

    One couple failed to show up, and we waited patiently at our meeting spot in the square for fifteen minutes past the start time. When given the go ahead our tour guide made up the time in a forced march tour. My husband and I...More

    We had a memorable 2-hour wander around Florence with a most gregarious guide named Manuela. Her knowledge allowed her to weave the history (and scandal) of the city into a wonderful overview of what the city has to offer. We would recommend this tour and...More
