About the tour

Ciao! Are you visiting Florence for the first time? If the answer is yes this is the perfect visit for you. I'll show you the most important places of the city walking trough its main roads and crossing its ancient and artistic piazzas!

We will start our visit in the square of Santa Maria Novella, famous for a tradition now forgotten, the race with chariots. We will also admire the beautiful facade of the church, work of the genius of Leon Battista Alberti.

Our visit continues in the religious centre of the city, cathedral square, the famous cathedral surmounted by the majestic dome, by Filippo Brunelleschi.

We will then continue towards the square which is still today the political centre of Florence, Piazza della Signoria. But before we get there we will visit the small church of Orsanmichele, which today houses some of the most beautiful statues of artists like Donatello and Verrocchio.

In Piazza della Signoria, in the shadow of the imposing Palazzo Vecchio you will be able to admire statues like the Neptune and the David.

The last part of our itinerary will be dedicated to Ponte Vecchio and to the river above it, the Arno. The river that was, in the centuries, luck and misfortune of Florence.

The time of the visit doesn't fit with your schedule? No worries, just contact me and we'll arrange for a different one, or for any other information you might need.

Great tour! Vincenzo gave us many interesting and detailed facts about the main attractions in Firenze. It’s old history was explained well and we had the feeling of being well prepared for the rest of the day. Even his restaurant recommendation was a bull's eye! Thank you

Hola Eva, dejar una evaluación por un tour que no ha hecho no es lindo. El mismo día que usted me preguntó por mensaje que os esperara ya había esperado 20 minutos y nadie se presentó.
