First time in Florence guided tour
From the Roman foundation of ancient Florentia to the golden age of the free Municipality, from the Medici Grand Duchy to Florence, the capital of Italy: this guided tour will lead you to discover the historical events and urban development of Florence.
The guide will introduce you to the most important monuments: in Piazza Duomo the Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore with the imposing dome by Brunelleschi and the majestic bell tower by Giotto; in the adjacent Piazza San Giovanni the Baptistery dedicated to the patron saint of the city; in Piazza della Signoria, the majestic bulk of Palazzo Vecchio framed by giant sculptures in marble and bronze. Walking through the squares and alleys of Dante’s district will allow you to appreciate an even more intimate Florence. Do not miss the view of the Arno from Ponte Vecchio. A look at the Pig Market and the visit will end in Piazza della Repubblica, where past and present come together: the space owes its current appearance to the renovations during the period of Florence as the capital, but the place was the heart of Roman Florence—here it is found the ‘forum’.
