What you shouldn't absolutely miss, if you are in Florence for the first time


Florence highlights are so many that you could feel yourself overwelmed.
So let's start slowly, with a nice walking tour which will touch the most important squares of Florence:
- Piazza del Duomo with the Cathedral and Brunelleschi's Dome, the Bell Tower and the Baptistry,
- Piazza della Repubblica, the oldest and newest square in Florence.
- Piazza della Signoria and Uffizi Square, where you'll discover where the original statue of David was placed when Michelangelo finished his artwork in 1505
- Ponte Vecchio
And an absolute must: the original David in the Accademia museum

A Recent Review of this tour

We met with Silvia after being in Florence for one day. It was a perfect start to our trip. She was so knowledgeable and a joy to listen to. We learned so much about the history of Florence that made it interesting and made you want more. She was quick to give us shopping and eating recommendations and was so very helpful with any questions we had. She was delightful!
