The perfect itinerary for first-time visitors to Florence


Our stroll will comprise Florence's must-see sites, including the city's religious heart with its amazing Gothic Cathedral and Baptistery and the Piazza della Signoria, the city's political hub, just to name two locations of the many we'll visit. While this tour can be considered very "classic" in that it will introduce you to Florence's most iconic sites and monuments, what won't be "classic" is the perspective from which you'll be approaching the subjects, since you'll be seeing them through the eyes of a true Florentine who knows the story of every single stone of her beloved city and has a passion for sharing the history. Even if you've taken a walking tour of Florence before, I'm sure you'll see it differently with me. And, as Florence's beauty takes on a different aspect by night, this tour is also available by in a "by-moonlight" version!

Itinerary

Our three-hour stroll along a route filled with the fantastic sites and rich history of Florence will begin and end at your doorstep. You can feel free to request short breaks as desired. The itinerary will be planned according to the location of your hotel as our starting and ending point, so does not have a standard/fixed itinerary, but you'll find a partial list of the sites you can expect to see below. If there's something specific you'd like to see that's not in the list below, please check with me: it's possible that it might be included in your itinerary and simply not listed, but, if this isn't the case, I'll see if it can be included it in our Classic Tour itinerary without compromising the rest of your experience!

A Recent Review of this tour

We enjoyed Paola's company so much! She has such a wide-ranging knowledge of the city and the sights to see. We were very pleased to travel around the city on foot instead of driving! ! We liked listening to her voice and learning some city history all in one afternoon. She did a remarkable job of distilling Florentine history for first time visitors! Having her guidance at the Galleria dell'Accademia was so appreciated--thanks for being part of that experience with us. Paola is a 5 star exceptional guide
