Walking Tour in Florence

Walking Tour in Florence

per person

If you have time for only one tour, this walking tour in Florence is the right one for you. It will allow you to visit the most famous sites of ancient Florence in 3 hours. This tour has been studied in all its parts to allow travelers to experience 2000 years of impetuous history. This Florence walking tour begins from the birthplace of the city, Piazza della Repubblica. Here we will try to reconstruct an image of the Roman Florentia from 59 BC, replacing the Hard Rock with the ancient temple of the gods in order to embrace the very heart of the city. Walking along the ancient Roman road that divides the north and south of the city into two. We will then arrive in the religious center of Florence, where the massive Duomo of Santa Maria del Fiore will impress you with its three colored marbles, where the architect Filippo Brunelleschi designed the most famous Dome in the world in 1436. It still a mystery of engineering and architecture, well over 116 m high (380 feet). Together we will discover the secrets that have kept it up to date. Here we will also see one of the oldest buildings in town, the Romanesque Baptistery, with its famous Renaissance Gate 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 that remind us of a distant 1333. Leaving behind the religious center and its valuable buildings, we head towards the political center of the city, in order to visit the ancient church of Orsanmichele. This church was a Gothic grain market which was transformed into one of the most elegant churches in town. The Florence walking guided tour continues to the Loggia del Mercato Nuovo which is also called Mercato del Porcellino. It was built in the 1500s as a market of fabrics and precious objects. Today the stalls offer leather, clothes and souvenirs. But it is most famous for the friendly fountain of the piggy which is very dear to the Florentines. If you come to Florence you can not miss rubbing its nose which is said to bring good luck. We will then go to Piazza della Signoria, the political center of Florence. This square is a breathtaking open air museum, adorned in white marble and bronze statues and with its massive medieval castle, called Palazzo Vecchio. This building was the government of the glorious Florentine Republic. This incredible space is one of the “musts” on our walking tour. It was used as a theater of diplomatic ceremonies, for historical festivals but it was even the place where public executions took place! Today this square is called “Theater of Wonders” and it is a veritable open-air museum of ancient statues, The Loggia dei Lanzi and buildings such as the elegant Uffizi gallery. The Walking Tour in Florence continues to the Arno River and Ponte Vecchio (The Old Bridge). It is the oldest bridge in town which dates back to 1345 and houses the antique shops of gold, diamonds and precious jewels that still retain their medieval appearance. We will be following the path of the secret Vasari Corridor, which runs above the Ponte Vecchio and finds its way to the end at Pitti Palace. This was the last residence of the Medici family. This was where their dynasty ended in the magnificence and luxury of this wonderful palace.
