Overview
With its many pedestrian-only streets and limited parking, Florence is best seen on a guided walking tour. With a guide on this tour, you’ll visit a mixture of landmarks (Brunelleschi’s Dome or Duomo, Giotto’s Bell Tower) and hidden gems, and discover secrets and scandals you'd likely miss if exploring independently. Plus, you’ll receive recommendations for the best places to eat, drink, and shop during your time in the city.
Highlights
  • Discover hidden Florence on a walking tour featuring icons and hidden gems 
  • Small-group tour is a great way for first-time visitors to orient themselves 
  • See Giotto’s Bell Tower, Baptsitery (Battistero), and the Duomo in less time 
  • Gain insight into the Florence's rich history with detailed narration of sights
What to Expect
Start your tour near the Piazza della Repubblica in central Florence, where you’ll greet your guide and enjoy an introduction to the capital of Italy’s Tuscany region. Explore highlights like Giotto’s Bell Tower, Baptistery (Battistero), and the Duomo, as you listen to tales of feuding painters, Medici rulers, and religious fanatics who all left their mark on the city. Discover quaint piazzas and charming backstreets, and recieve insider tips about gelato shops, restaurants, and bars from your guide. The walking tour concludes at Piazza del Duomo. Shoulders and knees (for men and women) must be covered when entering sacred sites.
