This 6-hour walking tour is perfect for art enthusiasts and culture vultures, giving you the knowledge and time to explore Florence with a local, professional expert. On your private tour, you will: 


On your walking day tour, your guide is there to adapt to whatever you may want to see! Feel free to ask the guide to take you to sites not mentioned, if time and tickets allow, You will have the chance to see the Piazza del Duomo, where you will explore the superb Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore and the Baptistry of St John. You will venture inside the unique Duomo- famous for Brunelleschi’s Dome, which took 140 years to complete. Look out for the octagonal Baptistry, built over 70 years and named after the Saint Protector of Florence- San Giovanni. 

You will also visit the antique Florentine Quarter where the talented Dante Alighieri used to live. You will pay a visit to Piazza della Signoria, where you may find yourself captivated by the Palazzo Vecchio and the Loggia dei Lanzi. Originally the seat of power for the ruling elite of the Republic of Florence, the Palazzo Vecchio is now the town hall and a symbol of the Tuscan capital. Built in the 14th century, the charming Loggia dei Lanzi is a masterpiece of Florentine Renaissance architecture and now hosts remarkable Renaissance sculptures.

A short walk on and you will also pass the celebrated Uffizi Gallery, home to some wonderful creations by the Italian Renaissance greats of Leonardo Da Vinci, Michelangelo and many others. The world-famous medieval bridge Ponte Vecchio is well worth a visit with its many quaint craft shops selling small souvenirs, lovely jewellery and beautiful paintings. 

After crossing the Ponte Vecchio, you will have the opportunity to stroll by the 15th century Palazzo Pitti, which always hosts several museums and rotating exhibitions. Its sublime Boboli Gardens are some of the grandest open-air museums Italy has to offer, boasting wonderful sculptures, picturesque fountains and magical grottos.

Your tour also includes a quick visit to the Church of Santo Spirito. Initially drafted by the immensely talented Brunelleschi; it was finally completed years after his death in the late 15th century. 

Your tour finishes in the Oltrarno neighbourhood, filled with artisans and perfect for spending an afternoon shopping for wonderful artwork and treasures to bring back from Florence. Your guide will happily give you recommendations on how to spend the rest of your day, including where to grab dinner.
