What makes this tour special
The soft, golden sunset over Tuscan hills bathes Florence in an ethereal blush-shade halo, and the changing colors of the sky add an otherworldly beauty to the city. On your Private Walking Tour of Florence by Night:
See the Florentine skyline from a fresh perspective, lit by starlight and flickering lamps.
Admire the ecclesiastical splendour of the Baptistery of St. John and Florence Cathedral.
Soak up the magical twilight ambience gazing at the Palazzo Vecchio’s impressive Arnolfo Tower.
Watch the slow-moving silvery Arno River under a night sky from the Ponte Vecchio.
Sightsee illuminated historical buildings such as Casa Buonarroti and the Uffizi Gallery.
Stroll a riddle of lamp-lit back streets to see Torre della Castagna - one of the city's ancient towers lit against the dark of night.
On your Private Tour of Florence By Night, soak up the night's eye view of the city, from Florence’s riddle of beguiling back streets and hear the mysterious stories to the candle-lit mellow sounds of a Gregorian chant. At night the ecclesiastical splendour of octagonal Baptistery of St. John is magnificent, a quality shared by the illuminated gothic spires of Florence Cathedral and the Campanile di Giotto on the spectacular Piazza del Duomo. Soaring high above surrounding buildings in the city, Arnolfo Tower gazes across centuries of history dating back to medieval times from the legacy of the illustrious Medici family to the famed artistic works by the world’s great masters, many of which celebrate the hues of sunset.Monuments city-wide, churches and Florence’s most striking facades are beautifully lit at twilight, providing a stark contrast to monochromatic pavements. A diffused orange glow of street lamps brings fresh identity to the city, showcasing centuries-old palaces and neatly-paved plazas with extra magic - even Michelangelo's statue David in Piazza della Signoria shines after dark.
As the sky begins to darken, a play of moonlight bathes the Arno River in a white-silver glow. Framed by a silhouette of trees Florence’s rows of illuminated buildings dazzle under a sky of twinkling stars. Pause on the Ponte Vecchio, the city’s oldest bridge, to watch as shimmering reflections cast their shadows, and wander onward to the handsome gilt and stucco of the Uffizi Gallery - illuminated in the otherwise still neighbourhood. Then see Florence’s predominant Franciscan church Chiesa Santa Croce, one of the largest in the world. Lastly, stroll past Casa Buonarroti, once Michelangelo’s home and now a museum in his honour, opposite 13th century Torre della Castagna.
