Duomo, piazza della Signoria, Ponte Vecchio and the David!


Florence is the city that gave birth to the Renaissance in the 15th century. More than 600 years later, the medieval and Renaissance aspects still dominate it.

Marble-clad churches and stately palazzi spread gently across the city's site on a small basin along the Arno River, all overlooked by the graceful red dome that Filippo Brunelleschi designed for the cathedral in 1420.

Our first stop is Ponte Vecchio, the bridge lined with jewelry shops since 1552 when Duke Cosimo I issued an edict for jewelers to replace all of the butcher shops previously lining the landmark.

I will take you past the Uffizi Gallery to see the fake David where Michelangelo's real statue once stood. Next you will visit Piazza della Signoria and the seat of the Florentine city government.

You won't believe the formidable size of your next Florence landmark, the Duomo, famous for Brunelleschi's dome, Giotto's colorful bell tower and the carved bronze Baptistry doors. And we will get to see Michelangelo's David.

A Recent Review of this tour

There's a small group of us that went to Florence and had a tour with Elisabetta. I would give her more than five stars if we're available she was very personable and extremely knowledgeable. What I appreciated most is she was very friendly and took great time to make sure we understood clearly what we saw and gave us some local flavor of the town as well
