Walking Tour Florence and David in 3 hours

Walking Tour Florence and David in 3 hours

per person

During this tour we will visit the central square and birthplace of Florence, Piazza della Repubblica. I will give you a little introduction to its history. From there we move on to the Mercato Nuovo to rub the nose of the Piggy so dear to the locales. You can’t miss it, it brings good luck! Our Florence and David Walking Tour continues to the Arno River and to the Ponte Vecchio. This is the oldest bridge in Florence and dates back to 1345 and houses the old shops of gold, diamonds and precious jewels that still retain their medieval appearance. After taking some of the most beautiful memorable pictures from there (guides are also good photographers), we will walk to Piazza della Signoria. This political center of the city is a breathtaking open air museum, decorated by white marble and bronze statues along with its massive medieval castle, called Palazzo Vecchio. Palazzo Vecchio was the government seat of the glorious Florentine republic. Today this square is called “Theater of Wonders” is a veritable open-air museum of ancient statues, The Loggia dei Lanzi and buildings such as the elegant Uffizi gallery. After this incredible artistic immersion, the Florence and David Walking Tour continues outside in the medieval streets of the city that will take us to the magnificent Duomo. The massive Duomo of Santa Maria del Fiore will impress you with its tri-colored marbles, where the architect Filippo Brunelleschi designed the most famous Dome in the world in 1436. It is still a mystery of engineering, well over 116 m high. Together we will discover the secrets that have kept it up to date. There we will also see one of the oldest buildings in town, the Romanesque Baptistery, with its famous Renaissance Gates of Paradise. The last work, but not the least will be the Gothic Bell Tower of Giotto with its tri-colored marble and the details of the decorations which reminds us of a distant 1333. Our final stop is the Accademia museum. The visit in this museum will be focused on the David and the Prisoners by Michelangelo. You will be fascinated by these masterpieces because we will unveil the secrets behind their beauty and their creator’s thoughts and life. The lesser-known Prisoners are intriguing because they reveal the personal torment of Michelangelo who sculpted the beautiful figures, struggling to escape from the marble. We will reenact the story of the David step-by-step to help you understand how a 26-year-old sculptor could use his talent to create a statue that would become the pinnacle of Renaissance art. The David is, indisputably, Michelangelo’s greatest work of art, and it is considered the ideal of male beauty from the Renaissance.
