Florence Guided Walking Tour

For those who want to discover the historic center Florence

My Florence Guided Walking Tour starts from the elegant old town, declared UNESCO heritage site. Thanks to the many works of art  already visible in the streets and squares, it can be in effect considered a wonderful open-air museum.

Our tour will start from Santa Maria Novella Square, where the façade of the homonymous church marks a prime example of Renaissance architecture, thanks to its elegant and sober lines, designed by Leon Battista Alberti, one of the greatest theoreticians of the XVth century architecture.

The Florence Guided Walking Tour will continue towards the city center

you will arrive in front of the splendid Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore, one of the most majestic churches in the world which, thanks to its imposing Brunelleschi’s dome, is one of the most admired monuments of Florence by visitors. We continue the itinerary by passing for Via dei Calzaiuoli and stopping in front of Orsanmichele Church, we will discover the curious history of this church, originally born as a barn.

“Piazza della Signoria” the political center of Florence

In the Signoria Square, the political heart of Florence, it will be where, under the bulk of Palazzo Vecchio, we will retrace the many historical events that took place in what is now a highly evocative space where, in all their beauty, some of the great masterpieces of Renaissance sculpture are offered to the vision, such as Michelangelo’s David, the Rape of the Sabines by Giambologna, the Benvenuto Cellini’s Perseus.

Florence guided walking tour along the Arno River

Continuing along the scenic Uffizi gallery, we end our tour overlooking the Arno from the historical Ponte Vecchio, whose view of the other bridges of the city is perhaps the most photographed postcard; it will be the most romantic memory of Florence that you bring in the heart.
