The walking guided tour of Florence historic center

is the most immediate way to get to know the artistic and architectural richness of the city. Florence Historic Center is entirely inscribed on UNESCO's World Heritage List, it retains a unique charm in the world, we'll find out by visiting the most famous places but also lesser known ones, rich in history and traditions.

Our Florence walking guided tour will start from the Roman origins of the city

We will retrace together its thousand-year history, moving from the area where once stood the ancient Roman forum up to the "religious center" of the city. Here we will admire the Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore (Florence Duomo) with the majestic Dome of Brunelleschi and the remains of the former cathedral of Santa Reparata, the austere Baptistery of San Giovanni, Giotto's Bell Tower, and the Museo dell'Opera del Duomo (Cathedral Museum).

Through narrow lanes we will then walk through the medieval district of Florence

Here Dante Alighieri lived and met his beloved Beatrice. Ancient towers and lively shops characterize this part of Florence that will lead us to the spectacular Piazza della Signoria, a veritable open-air museum.

The facade of Palazzo Vecchio dominates one side of Piazza della Signoria

The building is flanked by the colossal Fountain of Neptune and the Equestrian Monument of Cosimo I. Under the Loggia della Signoria we will admire some of the most famous Florentine Renaissance sculptural masterpieces.

Through the Uffizi Square we will then arrive along the banks of the Arno river to reach "Ponte Vecchio", the Old Bridge: the most ancient and characteristic bridge of Florence. 

The Uffizi Palace was designed by Giorgio Vasari for Duke Cosimo I de'Medici in the 16th century and today houses the most famous collection of paintings in the world. 

I wish everyone to experience a walking guided tour of Florence at least once in lifetime

I have cultivated a passion for my city, where I have the fortune to live and work every day. If you want to share with me these interests, I will provide my skills and my passion so that your stay in Florence will remain engraved in your memory.

Admiring Brunelleschi's Dome, strolling along the banks of the Arno or Piazza della Signoria at sunset, lingering on Ponte Vecchio to watch the city are real unforgettable experiences!
