Full description
Start your walking tour at Piazza del Duomo where you will meet your expert guide. After a short debrief about the Basilica, continue on to the neighborhood of San Lorenzo, the home of the first Medici Palace in Florence and the Medici Chapel. Check out the neighborhood's famous open-air market specializing in leather goods and clothing. Learn more about the Medici family and the part they played in Florentine history from your expert guide as you wander through. Next, come upon the most iconic landmark in Florence: the Duomo. Marvel at the complex comprised by the Baptistery, Brunelleschi’s Dome, and Giotto’s Bell Tower. Nearby, find Dante’s house and the Bargello, a former prison that now serves as an art museum. Stop by Il Porcellino, a bronze boar statue, and rub his nose for luck. Then head to Piazza della Signoria and Loggia dei Lanzi to admire the beauty of the Palazzo Vecchio. Learn about the history of the palace and stroll through the open-air museum at the Loggia. Continue along the Vasari Corridor to reach your last stop, Ponte Vecchio.

The two times that I have contracted with you they have not complied, in Siena they suspended the visit and in Florence they changed the time and the language, the experience could not be worse.
