A walk to introduce you to the heart of the Renaissance and its most important sites


From its inception as a modest agricultural colony settled by retired Roman soldiers in 59 BC at the behest of Julius Caesar, Florence developed into a city recognized as "the Athens of the Middle Ages, " "the heart of the Renaissance, " and the birthplace of artistic, architectural, scientific, and literary milestones that changed the world forever.

This two-hour tour is an introduction to the most iconic sites of Florence's historic center. It's recommended as an overview of this UNESCO World Heritage Site city or to prepare you for deeper exploration on your own.
