The highlights of Florence on foot!

A three-hour walking tour of Florence with a professional guide is the best way to get the feeling of this wonderful city!


This tour is meant to show you the highlights of the city. You will see the picturesque historic center with its monuments and statues. You will learn about Florence's architectural history through the Medieval towers and Renaissance palaces. You will visit some of the city's famous squares. In a few words, you'll get to understand why Florence has become one of the artistic treasure troves of the world!

We will start from the political hub of Florence (Piazza della Signoria). We will cross the river through Ponte Vecchio, the old bridge. Then we will have a fascinating walk through the streets of the southbank (the craft shops district) and we will get to the religious centre (the Baptistry, the Duomo and Giotto's Bell-tower).

Be ready for a great experience!

P. S. I can create a customized tour for you in case you have special requests

A Recent Review of this tour

What a wonderful tour! Giovanna had a wonderful grasp of the historical background of the city - and brought so many of the sites to life as a result. She met us at our hotel as promised and provided terrific background of the city. She exceeded our agreed upon time by thirty minutes (we asked a lot of questions) without complaint. if possible, do this tour "first thing" and then you can return to the sites and museums that interest you after. Thank you Giovanna!
