Full description
Meet your guide at Piazza Duomo to begin your walking tour. Hear about the Duomo, the icon of Florence. This is where the Baptistery of Saint John, Brunelleschi's Dome, and Giotto's Bell Tower are. Just next-door, your guide will show you Dante's House and the former prison turned art museum, the Bargello National Museum.

Head to the Piazza Santa Croce, where you will find the Santa Croce Basilica, the resting place of geniuses. Then, try to swing fortune in your favor at Il Porcellino, the bronze boar statue that can bring you luck if you rub its nose. Continue to Piazza della Signoria and Loggia dei Lanzi to marvel at the beauty of the Palazzo Vecchio. Explore the history of the palace and admire the open-air museum at the Loggia.

Then, pass through the Vasari Corridor to reach Ponte Vecchio. Cross this famous bridge to reach your last stop, the equally celebrated Piazzale Michelangelo. Delight in panoramic views of Florence city center from above, take amazing photos from the terrace and learn more about the iconic buildings.
