Full description
Make the most of your time in Florence with a 2-hour walking tour past the most important sites and monuments. Florence is not a large city, but its historical importance, as well as its concentration of monuments and museums, are truly amazing. 

Meet your guide in a central spot of the city and explore Piazza della Repubblica, where the ancient Roman Forum originally was. Walk to Piazza della Signoria, the political heart of the city. Listen to the history of the Florentine Republic, the Medici family, and the Palazzo Vecchio. Admire the sculptures that make this piazza one of the most famous in the world. Proceed to the Ponte Vecchio to admire its jewelry and hear the unique history of the Vasari Corridor, passing above it. Arrive at the Pitti Palace, which was once the private residence of the grand dukes and admire its splendor.

Continue your walk through the Oltrarno, the bohemian area of Florence, which is full of artists, workshops, and lovely cafés. Cross the Ponte Santa Trinita and stop for a stunning picture of the Ponte Vecchio from this side. The tour continues along Via Tornabuoni, the fashion designer street, where you will be amazed by the beautiful window displays. Pass through Palazzo Strozzi's courtyard and admire the essence of the Renaissance architecture.

Continue your walk to the Duomo to admire the Cathedral, Brunelleschi's Dome, and the Baptistery.
