Full description
Enjoy a private promenade of Florence, Italy's most pedestrian friendly city, and discover the “Cradle of the Renaissance.” Start at the astonishing marble Duomo, with its soaring dome by Brunelleschi. Next door lies the Bapistry, built over a Roman temple to Mars, and now the oldest building in Florence. Continue along streets lined with Renaissance statues and buildings, following in the footsteps of some of Italy’s most important artists and Medici noblemen. Pass through Piazza della Repubblica, marking the site of an ancient Roman Forum, to reach Piazza della Signoria, the historical hub of the city. See a fascinating collection of statues outside Palazzo Vecchio, including a copy of Michelangelo’s “David.” Next, walk across Ponte Vecchio, straddling the River Arno, and experience an icon of Florence, with its tiny artisan workshops and boutique jewelry stores. The tour ends at the Galleria dell'Accademia, where you will skip the lines and enjoy fast track entry to see Michelangelo’s original “Statue of David.”
