Introductory Walking tour of Florence

No city in the world contains so many stunning works of art in such a small space as Florence. This tour is planned to show you the highlights of the city, but also some hidden gems and give you some suggestions for things to do and see during your stay in Florence. We will start from the Duomo, the cathedral of Florence, which produces a memorable effect of massive grandeur with its enormous dome and it’s marvellous decoration in coloured marble. We will then move to Piazza della Signoria, Florence’s most impressive outdoor sculpture gallery and cross the famed Ponte Vecchio bridge to go the fascinating neighborhood of Oltrarno; less touristy but not less interesting. Here we will see the foreboding Pitti Palace, home of the Medici and of the King of Italy and Santo Spirito’s Church where Michelangelo spent his youth and where he made his first studies on human anatomy.
