Full description
Florence is a city of delights, and walking its streets is the best way to get a sense of its pleasures. Of course our guides will take you to the most important sites around town, but they'll also share with you the intrigue, gossip and historical anectodes this city has lurking under its surface!

Florentines have a long history of greatness. From Michelangelo to Da Vinci, these streets have played home to some of the most influential thinkers and creators of the modern world. We will explore the historical and architectural evolutions from Roman times through the medieval centuries and into the Renaissance, when Florence really blossomed into what it is today. People often consider this the very birthplace of the Renaissance, and we feel that you'll soon understand why. The romance and intrigue of its streets are enough to make any person jump up and grab a paint brush!

As we walk through the center of this UNESCO Heritage Cities, we will stop for a surprise "tasting" to learn about the culinary and wine aspects of Florence's rich culinary traditions. We will also see the Piazza della Signoria, with the town hall Palazzo Vecchio, with its massive, Romanesque, crenellated fortress-palace. It is among the most impressive town halls of Tuscany! We stop by the famed Duomo, the Baptistry and "Gates of Paradise", as well as the picture postcard perfect Pontevecchio. This icon of our city will amaze you with its grandeur and beauty! Make sure to stop and have a gelato at one of the incredible shops lining the streets! There are plenty of other treasures to explore along our way, and our guides will make sure to point out each one and explain its importance and history to you.

Finally, we will arrive at the famous shopping streets of the Oltrarno, which is a part of the historic center of Florence, and is known for its exquisite hand-made crafts. We depart ways here, and hope that you've discovered what makes our city something really special. Ciao!
