Overview
Florence, nicknamed the “Cradle of the Renaissance,” is home to some of Italy’s most impressive art and architecture of that period. On this walking tour, you will not only discover famous Florence landmarks, including the Baptistery, the cathedral (Duomo), and Ponte Vecchio, but also cross the river to explore the artisans' quarter of Oltrarno and see how Florence’s art heritage is kept alive today.
What to Expect
Meet your guide in central Florence and set out to discover the city’s architectural masterpieces on foot. Hear about famous Florentine artists, such as Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci, Botticelli, and Giotto, as you stroll around Piazza della Signoria, home to Palazzo Vecchio and the Uffizi Gallery. Then, continue to see the Duomo, Florence’s famous cathedral. As you admire the magnificent place of worship, listen as your guide points out Brunelleschi's Dome and surrounding monuments, such as Giotto’s Bell Tower and the Baptistery.

Pause to enjoy a coffee or gelato (included) at a local café, before crossing the river to explore the artists' quarter of Oltrarno. Along the way, pass the beautiful Orsanmichele and St. Trinity (Santa Trinita) churches, and take photos of the Ponte Vecchio bridge. Spend some time browsing the artisans' shops, art galleries, and markets of Oltrarno, before ending your tour back at the departure point.

Loved it!

The guide was great and the duration was just right. The headphones were useful because it can get noisy in parts of the town and it means you can still hear the guide when they're not close by.More
