Enjoy a private 3-hour walking tour in Florence with a local guide through the medieval and Renaissance areas of the city. Visit the famous sights including the Medici Chapels, Florence Cathedral, Basilica di San Lorenzo, Ponte Vecchio, and Pitti Palace.
What to Expect
The most complete and thrilling guided walking tour starts from the peculiar Central Market area, characterized by its workshops and multicolored stalls. Here the Medici Chapels and the Basilica di San Lorenzo, the church of the Medici family, are located.
In a short time you will reach Piazza del Duomo, where you can admire its dome by Brunelleschi, the bell-tower by Giotto, and Saint John Baptistery with its Paradise Door. The tour continues by visiting the medieval quarters where Dante Alighieri and Beatrice lived. Further on you can find Palazzo del Bargello before reaching Piazza della Signoria, a great open-air sculpture museum overlooked by the imposing Palazzo Vecchio.
You will then head to the Uffizi Gallery, one of the most important museums in the world. Then you will proceed to the picturesque Mercato della Paglia (straw market) where the famous Piglet Fountain is located. Walk along the street that leads to Ponte Vecchio, the bridge known for its jewelry shops, before crossing the bridge to reach the wonderful Pitti Palace where our tour ends.
