Full description
With only 2 hours at your disposal in the beautiful Florence, you will want to see the chief monuments and walk around the “heart” of the city centre.

The private guided tour starts with Piazza del Duomo, facing the cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore, begun by Arnolfo di Cambio in 1296 but only in 1436 crowned with the masterpiece of Filippo Brunelleschi. Beside the façade stands another giant, Giotto’s campanile (bell tower) and opposite the façade of the Duomo is the more ancient Baptistery of St John, with its famous bronze doors by Ghiberti and Andrea Pisano.

Following the animated Via dei Calzaiuoli you'll reach Piazza della Signoria, the political heart of Florence. Here rises the late 13th-century Palazzo della Signoria or Palazzo Vecchio and, flanking the piazza, is the 14th-century Loggia dei Lanzi, in which there are such world-renowned statues as Benvenuto Cellini’s Perseus and the Rape of the Sabines by Giambologna. Prepare to take amazing pics of the statues, the "piazze", the typical streets of the old town and the pictoresque Ponte Vecchio, the most famous and ancient bridge of Florence.
