Toward the Beating Heart of the Renaissance

Florence is a historic city for numerous reasons, all of which will be revealed during your visit to its mesmerizing center. This unique walking tour will start at the ancient Medici Family District, where you will find the illustrious Palazzo Medici Riccardi, the famed San Lorenzo Church, and their crypts in the Medici Chapels.

A Scenic Stroll

You may see the impressive Orsanmichele Church and the Mercato della Paglia (Straw Market) as you continue down the busy Via Calzaiuoli. Perhaps even take part in the act of stroking the snout of the well-known "Il Porcellino" (pig) fountain and throwing a penny in for good luck! Admire Florence's oldest bridge, the bright and storied Ponte Vecchio, with its famed jewelry stores.

Next up, Piazza Signoria - one of the world's most beautiful squares and the city's political hub. You will be astounded as you gaze over the lovely Fountain of Neptune and the sculptural marvels of the Loggia dei Lanzi in this authentic "outdoor museum". All of this is overlooked by the grand town hall Palazzo Vecchio, with its Arnolfo tower - one of the city’s most well-known emblems.

Guided Visit of Duomo

Your next stop, Piazza del Duomo, the Cathedral complex, is located at the very heart of the historic center of Florence. Follow your guide inside the magnificent ecclesiastical hub, which includes the Cathedral with its imposing Brunelleschi dome, the Baptistery of San Giovanni, and the opulent Giotto bell tower. Inside the Santa Maria del Fiore Cathedral, take in the splendor of Bandinelli's marble choir, the priceless stained-glass windows by Donatello, Ghiberti, and Andrea del Castagno, and the enigmatic clock by Paolo Uccello. Glance up at the large fresco in the enormous, priceless interior of the Dome, fully painted by Vasari.

Misericordia Museum is also in Piazza del Duomo, next-door to the Cathedral. Enjoy an incredible view of the Cathedral Square and its monuments from the Museum's fourth floor while shooting lovely photographs. The Museum is a wonderful, off-the-beaten-path location where you can view the creations of many renowned painters, including Santi di Tito, Bacchiacca, Sogliani, and G. Battista Naldini.

There will be ample time between stops to fuel up with lunch and ensure that you get the most out of this comprehensive walking tour. End your experience with a renewed appreciation for Florence and the Renaissance.
