A walking tour of the highlights of Florence


A full day trip to Florence, the cradle of the Renaissance and home to the notorious Medici dynasty. An idyllic day starting with a hilltop view of the most romantic city in the world! Winding our way down into the labyrinth of medieval streets steeped in history, we'll see bright and bustling squares and glinting church facades. You won't believe your eyes, so much beauty in such a small city that can easily be explored on foot in a day.
All the must-see highlights will be included, The Cathedral, baptistery and bell tower, Piazza Signoria and Palazzo Vecchio, the Ponte Vecchio and Palazzo Pitti, and a choice of important basilicas such as Santa Croce and Santa Maria Novella . Florence isn't just about historical monuments, for many of us the lifestyle, food, fashion and craftsmanship are equally enticing. We will stop off for a tasty lunch where the locals hang out and eat the most delicious ice cream ever. Another famous square will be our rendez vous with your driver who will take you back to your ship.
