This is the Centre where everyone comes to see the Dome. Beautiful marble buildings surround you. Don't just look at the dome, look closely at the details that surround statues and door ways.

I did both the morning tour and the afternoon Medici tour. The 5 star rating only applies to the fantastic morning tour led by Danielo who had interesting stories and facts about a wide range of sites in Florence. Of all the free walks I have done, this was the most informative and engaging, and with the microphone and speaker... More

I like this tour a lot, it is not quick like many others, the guide walked us through the city slowly, I think this is the best way for all, as we only want to relax and learn the local stuff, not pushing to the limit. :)

Mario was out guide, and led a large group, and gave us loads of information. I liked that he used a small microphone, so we could always hear what he was saying ! Recommended !

We did both the morning and afternoon tour with Filippo on our first day in Florence. It was an excellent way to get our bearings and learn some of the rich history of the city. Filippo was very passionate about his city and also passed on tips including restaurants and sights.

This tour made us familiar with the history of Florence city. I highly recommend this tour. It is always worth to know the nook-n-cranny things of this historic city, which we could have missed otherwise.

Staying in Uffizi

Neighbourhood Profile
Uffizi
Every visitor coming to Florence for the first time will immediately identify with Uffizi. As in past times, passing through Via dei Calzaiuoli, you can reach the city center, the Florence that everybody dreams of. In just a few steps, visitors can experience the rare beauty of the capital of the Renaissance. walking delighted across Palazzo Vecchio and overlooking Piazza della Signoria, up to the Loggia of the Uffizi where it is possible to fully taste the talent of the best artists who animated Florence over the centuries. When the sun goes down, there’s nothing better than a walk along the river Arno up to the ancient bridge, Ponte Vecchio. It is full of jewels and decorated by the colors captured in postcards.
