Delve into the historic center of Florence on a three hour walking tour including the Ponte Vecchio, the Duomo, Uffizi Square, the leather market and Accademia Gallery.
Your English-speaking guide will identify architecture from the Middle Ages and Renaissance eras as you stroll the timeless streets of Florence.
Starting at the Ponte Vecchio Bridge, traverse town admiring ancient statues, and glorious fountains. Pass the elegant Uffizi square before a stop inside the Church of Orsanmichele to view the works of Donatello, Ghillberti and Verrocchio.
Visit the former Ancient Forum, now Piazza della Repubblica and a popular meeting place for writers and artists. Glance Ghilberti's Baptistry Doors, known as the 'Gates of Paradise' and be sure to rub the nose of legendary 'il Porcellino' the boar, so that you may one day return again to Florence!
Dominating the Florentine skyline, Brunlleschi's imposing Duomo never fails to impress. Entry inside the Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore is astounding.*
Devour a delicious homemade Italian gelato before arriving at the Hospital of the Innocents, the first European orphanage. Conclude your walking tour of Florence at the Accademia Gallery. Skip-the-line entry tickets are included so you can by-pass the crowds and the queues. Marvel Michelangelo's 17 foot David and enjoy the rest of the gallery's artistic works at your leisure.
*On Sundays and during Religious Holidays, entry inside the Duomo is restricted. In the event this occurs, a detailed tour will be given from the outside.
