Tour description

Our walking tour combines lecture-style input with amusing anecdotes and interesting insights to offer an enjoyable and relaxed approach to the city. Join our small group orientation tour of Florence, walk in the footsteps of the Medici to discover the amazing Renaissance heritage of this wonderful city.

The tour will take you to the most famous sites in the city center: Piazza Signoria with Palazzo Vecchio, the medieval heart of the town; the magnificent Duomo and the Baptistry, the most ancient religious building in Florence, in the shadow of the imposing Giotto's Bell Tower

Admire the architectural wonder of Orsanmichele

Situated right in the heart of the city center, Orsanmichele is one of the most beautiful buildings in Florence. During the Middle Ages it was a market, home to guilds and the storage place of grain.

Over time it was transformed into a church and became the church of Florence's many guilds. Each guild has a statue of their patron saint outside.  

Cross the Ponte Vecchio to reach the Oltrarno district

Oltrarno is a charming neighborhood full of artisan workshops. The quarter still maintains a traditional, local feel and is home to some of the finest bars and restaurants in the city.

At the center of Oltrarno stands the church of Santo Spirito, designed by the same Brunelleschi who built the Duomo. Inside is what many believe to be an original crucifix scultpure by Michelangelo.

If art is your passion, we recommend to complete your Florence experience with a guided tour of the Uffizi and Accademia
