This tour is suggested to those who wish to see all the most important sights, usually, those who are visiting Florence for the first time.

It consists of a fascinating walk through the historical center of the city. The tour includes the district of Santa Croce, famous for the church known as the "Pantheon of the Italian Glories" owing to the fact that many illustrious Italians, such as Michelangelo, Galileo Galilei, Rossini and Machiavelli, are buried here.

The visit also includes the old bridge, the visit of exterior of the religious center (the Baptistry, the Duomo and Giotto's Bell-tower), as well as the political center (Piazza della Signoria) of the city where you'll be able to see the replica of the David by Michelangelo.

I would like to remind you to be properly dressed when visiting churches.
In particular, remember to cover your shoulders and to avoid wearing shorts.

A Recent Review of this tour

Valentina was a perfect tour guide for our group of nine family members ranging from a 10-year-old kid to a grandparent. She did not waste one minute from the moment we met her. We got tons of useful information on the history, culture, restaurants, sites, and city. She was upbeat, personable, and energetic. This tour was a great way to orient ourselves for the rest of our trip. All of her recommendations of places to go were very helpful. I highly recommend a tour with Valentina!
