Florence: 2-Hour Private Walking Tour

2. Florence: 2-Hour Private Walking Tour

If you had only 2-hours at your disposal in beautiful Florence, you will want to see the chief monuments and walk around the heart of the city center. That's what you'll do on this tour. The guided walk 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. After that, you'll pass by the impressive Galleria degli Uffizi on your way to the Arno River and Ponte Vecchio, where your tour ends. Prepare to take amazing pictures of the statues, the squares, the typical streets of the old town and the picturesque Ponte Vecchio, the most famous and ancient bridge of Florence.
