Full description
After meeting up with your guide, you will receive an insight into the history of this Renaissance city and how this incredible cultural movement of the Renaissance transformed not only Florence but eventually the rest of Europe. Your guide will start off with Piazza Della Republica, the main square of Florence that marks the center of the City. After a little talk of history and the changes of the Piazza Republica since its origin, you will walk straight to the the Piazza Della Duomo. A showstopper of Filippo Brunelleschi, Giotto, Arnolfo & Francesco Talenti. Whilst passing the Duomo Square, your guide will lead you straight through the old buildings and some of the historical landmarks of Florence to Palazzo Vecchio, where the David’s’ sculpture (the original is in the Galleria dell'Accademia) by Michelangelo is placed outside the Palazzo Vecchio as a symbol of the Republic's defiance of the tyrannical Medici. Afterward, as you walk past the Palazzo Vecchio, your guide will talk you through the Uffizi Gallery, one of the greatest museums of the world, before you reach the most famous old bridge of Florence known as “Ponte Vecchio”. Your next stop is Palazzo Pitti, the enormous palace of Florence's largest architectural monuments of Filippo Brunelleschi and the former household of the Pitti Family, and later of the Medici's. Walking through the narrow roads of this ancient city with lots of hidden treasures, your guide will answer all the curious secrets of the city and you will explore many more interesting points of attraction to help you get the best out of your stay in this city. Finally, your guide will talk you through the artists, architects, thinkers and political figures who led to the Renaissance, before your final stop to “La Strega Nocciola” for a delicious gelato offered to you by Star Florence.

Very informative guidance

The tour gave a very informative overview. Since we had a guided tour of the cathedral in the afternoon, this was taken into account by our guide and the tour changed individually. We were completely satisfied.
