Book the Highlights of Florence Tour, let yourself be surrounded by the wonders of Italian Renaissance in the Historic Centre of Florence!

Our expert local guide will lead you during the Highlights of Florence Tour through the historic centre alleys to the discovery of the iconic monuments of Florence which are also symbols of one of the most fascinating eras of Italian history. ...

Our Highlights of Florence Tour will firstly reach “Ponte Vecchio Bridge”, a medieval bridge over the “Arno” river. Ponte Vecchio Bridge was the first bridge built across the Arno until 1218 and it has been rebuilt many times because of the many floods of the river. On the bridge there have always been shops and merchants and in 1595 only goldsmiths and jewelers were allowed to have a shop there to enhance the prestige of the bridge and nowadays there are mainly jewelers and souvenirs shops. Ponte Vecchio Bridge is a very romantic spot in Florence because of its great view over the Arno river.

Going through the “Uffizi courtyard”, the Highlights of Florence Tour will lead you to “Piazza della Signoria” where you can find the copy of Michelangelo’s David”, which original copy is in the Academy Museum, and the town hall Palazzo Vecchio”. This particular “palace” is a perfectly blended result of Roman ruins, Medieval fortress and Renaissance interiors and paintings. On one of the sides of the “Piazza della Signoria”, you will also be able to see the beautiful statues of the “Loggia dei Lanzi”, watched by two marble lions placed on both sides of the entrance staircase.

Next, the Highlights of Florence Tour will take you to “Piazza della Repubblica”, considered the very centre of the city since Roman era and mainly known today for being a theatre for street artists and for the colorful carousel. On one of its sides, there is the famous “Giubbe Rosse Café” which has been a meeting place of famous artists and writers and, if you’re interested in buying some rock-themed souvenirs, in the west side of the square there is the “Hard Rock Café”. Afterwards, our guide will lead you to visit the “Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore” – better known as the “Duomo” -, the “Baptistery of St John and “Giotto’s Bell Tower”. These buildings are part of the UNESCO World Heritage Sites and the dome of the cathedral, designed by “Filippo Brunelleschi”, is still the largest brick dome ever built. The Duomo is a vast Gothic structure and it took two centuries to be finished but it was consecrated when even the façade was not completed. Aside from the complex architecture, inside you can see beautiful frescos such as the “Last Judgment” designed by Giorgio Vasari and a peculiar clock above the entrance setted with the “ora italica” where the day end at sunset.
