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.

Elisabetta made our overview of Florence so wonderful, comfortable and leisurely. We discovered Florence to have a ton of nooks and crannies we never expected. She knew so much about the city and my husband and I loved talking about historical people with her. Her narratives about icons from Florentine history are colorful and inspiring. She goes with whatever flow you need her to and is so caring, knowledgeable, artsy, professional and generous with her time. Thank you for a wonderful tour Elisabetta!
