Your experience

Highlights

  • Visit the world-famous Florence Cathedral, the Duomo di Firenze, designed by Brunelleschi, and visit the Baptistery to take a look at Gilberti's golden gates of paradise
  • During a city tour you will see the most important sights of Florence like the Piazza della Repubblica, the Piazza della Signoria and the bridge of Ponte Vecchio
  • Learn the stories behind the incredible facades of Palazzo Vecchio and Orsanmichele Church under the guidance of an experienced English-speaking local

Description

We start at the Accademia Gallery to see Michelangelo's "David" and his partially completed "slaves". This gives you a unique insight into the art with which he transformed the jagged rock into the beautiful, lifelike figures of his sculptures. You will also hear stories of Leonardo Da Vinci and the powerful Medici family, whose patronage made Florence one of the hotbeds of the Renaissance art world.

Next, we visit the Dome of Florence to admire the painted interior of Brunelleschi's famous dome and hear the story of how he had to relearn lost architectural knowledge to design and build it. We will also stop at the Baptistery to admire the stunning golden gates of paradise and learn about the history of the cut-throat competition that brought them into existence

After the Cathedral we take the street to see some of the landmarks of Florence, including the titanic Palazzo Vecchio, the statues of the Church of Orsanmichele, Piazza della Repubblica and Piazza della Signoria, the porcellino pig (rub his nose for luck!) and of course the most picturesque bridge in Italy, the Ponte Vecchio

As you walk, the places come to life with the stories told by your experienced English-speaking guide. In a private group of 15 people or less, you will have plenty of time to ask questions and learn about the incredible history of this unforgettable city from the ground up.

Please note
