an aperitif stroll
A guided walking tour in Florence is one of the best ways for you to explore the city and get a comprehensive overview of its history and principal highlights. While walking in the centre, a qualified guide will give you an in-depth perspective of the history of the city and its artistic attractions.
The itinerary includes the main sights such as the Cathedral complex with the church of Santa Maria del Fiore topped by the famous Brunelleschi Dome, the Giotto Bell Tower and the ancient Baptistery; the Orsanmichele church with its unique history and architecture, the Palazzo Vecchio surrounded by a large number of sculptures which makes Piazza Signoria an open air museum, the Uffizi building commissioned by the Medici family, the Ponte Vecchio and, on request, the Pitti Palace on the other side of the river or other important fascinating churches such as San Lorenzo, Santa Maria Novella and Santa Croce.
The tour also offers the chance to stroll in the medieval district of Florence with its still existing towers, hidden squares and alleys which brings you back to the time of Dante Alighieri, one of Italy’s most important poets of all time, the author of the Divine C0medy.
This walking tour meets both the expectations of first time comers as well as travellers back in Florence who would like to discover the cradle of the renaissance with its monuments, anecdotes and local and still authentic corners which are a significant part of this vibrant city.
The tour concludes with an Aperitif at one of the most exclusive locations in the city.
