3.0 hours (approx.)
6.0 hours also available
Walk through the streets and piazzas of Florence (Birthplace of the Renaissance) we'll discuss the ideas of the Renaissance, the lives of many famous artists, the Medici family who showered Florence with countless masterpieces, and how life changed forever during this epic period of the history of Florence.
In-between the famous landmarks, we'll take enchanting back-streets and alleys paved with the original stones from ancient times. Here, we'll discover lesser known attractions that will help weave together the complex and rich history of the city and provide our guests with a more intimate experience of Florence.
We'll pause to admire the Ponte Vecchio and to discuss the history and role of the oldest surviving bridge crossing the river Arno. As we enter the piazza della Signoria, after admiring Vasari's Corridor from the exterior, we'll enter Dante's old neighborhood. After enjoying a walk through the historical centre of Florence we arrive at the Accademia Gallery, home to Florence 's most treasured work of art - "Michelangelo's David".
After enjoying an in-depth discussion of David, we'll also have time to admire "Michelangelo's Slaves". A series of breath-taking sculptures of original captives of the stone who writhe, struggle and turn, forever attempting to free themselves from their rigid marble blocks.
The tour finishes inside the Accademia Gallery where you'll be able to admire other important works of art housed in the museum, and perhaps, take some time to reflect on an intense and thoroughly entertaining tour of Florence and the times of the Renaissance.
Stroll along the heart of Florence, visiting the square of the Duomo with its Belltower and the Baptistery, we’ll head to Piazza della Repubblica, the oldest part of the city then transformed in an elegant square, and then to Ponte Vecchio to see its renowned jewellers’ shops.
We’ll proceed to Piazza della Signoria that holds an open-air gallery of Renaissance statues and piazza Santa Croce to admire the Franciscan church of Santa Croce where many famous Italians are buried
