The Highlights of Florence
Exploring the icons of Florence, the most famous artworks and monuments: Michelangelo's David in the Accademia Gallery, the tombs of the great Italians in the church of Santa Croce, the Duomo and its impressive marble decoration, the huge Brunelleschi's cupola "soaring above the sky, it protects with its shadow all the Tuscan people". Not least, Signoria Square, a beautiful open-air museum and political heart of Florence.
A walk through the centuries when Florence was the New York of the Middle Ages, a look at the period when Florence was "the school of the world".

What a great tour for 1st timers in Florence. We only had a day to spend around the city and Francesco exceeded our expectations! We saw and learned so much. We would never have found all those sites in the limited time we had. Thoroughly enjoyed it. Thanks for a great day out Francesco. We look forward to booking another tour with you again for our next visit to Florence. Toula, Paul and Alexander.
