Full description
Florence is literally dotted with ARCHITECTURAL WONDERS and WORKS OF ART. On our tour, you will admire firsthand the sites and monuments that have made Florence one of the most visited destinations in the world. To start your tour, you will head to REPUBBLICA SQUARE, one of the most elegant and historically important “piazzas” in Florence, overflowing with refined cafés and luxury shopping. Follow your guide through the characteristic streets and picturesque alleys until you reach LOGGIA DEL MERCATO NUOVO, where your guide will demonstrate a symbol of good luck by caressing the nose of the famous PORCELLINO (wild boar) BRONZE STATUE. On this tour, you will learn all sorts of local legends, fascinating stories, and unexpected facts about Florence. Right around the corner, your guide will lead you to the intriguing PONTE VECCHIO - a true icon of the city. This bridge is famous for its exclusive jewelry stores, unique structure, and for being the only bridge spared during the bombings during the Second World War. Then, follow your guide to ACCADEMIA DEI GEORGOFILI and UFFIZI SQUARE, where you will discover the heart of Florence - SIGNORIA SQUARE. This true open-air museum is dominated by the imposing PALAZZO VECCHIO and the magnificent LOGGIA DEI LANZI, home to fascinating statues such as PERSEUS by Cellini and the RAT OF THE SABINE WOMEN by Giambologna. Your journey through Florence will lead to SAN GIOVANNI SQUARE, home of the wonderful FLORENCE CATHEDRAL and BRUNELLESCHI'S DOME, as well as the Baptistery and Giotto's Bell Tower. Continue your tour by visiting the INTERIORS OF THE CATHEDRAL OF SANTA MARIA DEL FIORE, saving your time by SKIPPING THE LONG QUEUES at the entrance and taking advantage of your expert guide, who will reveal all the secrets of this immense wealth of art and architecture.
