The perfect itinerary for first-time visitors to Florence who want to experience the magic and romance of the city after dark
Every hour of the day highlights the beauty of Florence in a unique way, but seeing the sites by night particularly accentuates the romance and mystery of the heart of the Renaissance. As with the Classic Tour by daylight, this "giro" will also cover Florence's must-see sites, like the city's religious heart with its amazing Gothic Cathedral and Baptistery and the Piazza della Signoria, the city's political hub, just to name two of the many locations included. And although this tour can be considered very "classic" in that it will introduce you to Florence's most iconic sites and monuments, what won't be "classic" is the perspective from which you'll be approaching the subjects, since you'll be seeing them through the eyes of a true Florentine who knows the story of every single stone of her beloved city and has a passion for sharing the history. Even if you've taken a walking tour of Florence before, I'm sure you'll see it differently with me. And certainly it's a very different experience by moonlight!
Our two-hour and thirty minutes stroll along a route filled with the fantastic sites and rich history of Florence will begin and end at your doorstep. You can feel free to request short breaks as desired. The itinerary will be planned according to the location of your hotel as our starting and ending point, so does not have a standard/fixed itinerary, but you'll find a partial list of the sites you can expect to see below. If there's something specific you'd like to see that's not in the list below, please check with me: it's possible that it might be included in your itinerary and simply not listed, but, if this isn't the case, I'll see if it can be included it in our Classic Tour itinerary without compromising the rest of your experience!
-The Duomo (Cathedral Santa Maria del Fiore)
-The Baptistery of St. John
-Piazza della Signoria
-Chiesa Santa Croce

Paola took me, my husband and our adult daughter on a two hour "moonlight " tour to introduce us to the main highlights of Florence. We loved this tour in which we heard about religion, politics, music and art while strolling the streets in a cooler part of the day. Paola was very knowledgeable and engaging. We had the bonus of a full moon rising over the Ponte Vecchio as we finished the tpue. Paola made us a dinner reservation at an excellent restaurant to follow our tour. Bravissima!
