Florence – Highlights Tour
Florence Walking Tour
Take an unforgettable journey to discover the most beautiful squares and monuments of Florence
Start your tour in REPUBBLICA SQUARE, one of the most elegant and historically important “piazzas” in Florence, refined cafés and luxury shopping. Follow your licensed guide through the picturesque streets to the LOGGIA DEL MERCATO NUOVO, where your guide will demonstrate a symbol of good luck by caressing the nose of PORCELLINO (wild boar) STATUE.
Right around the corner, your guide will lead you to the intriguing PONTE VECCHIO – a true icon of the city. This bridge is famous for its exclusive jewelry stores, unique structure, and for being the only bridge spared during the bombings during the Second World War.
Then, follow your guide discovering the heart of Florence – SIGNORIA SQUARE. This true open-air museum is dominated by the PALAZZO VECCHIO and the magnificent LOGGIA DEI LANZI, home to fascinating statues such as PERSEUS by Cellini and the RAT OF THE SABINE WOMEN by Giambologna.
Your journey will end to DUOMO SQUARE, home of the wonderful FLORENCE CATHEDRAL and BRUNELLESCHI’S DOME, as well as the Baptistery and Giotto’s Bell Tower.
If Florentine art is of particular interest to you, you may like to also take our Galleria Accademia Florence Tour — this gallery boasts the greatest collection of Renaissance art from Florence, with many of Michelangelo’s sculptures, including his legendary work: David.

Explore Piazza della Repubblica, one of the most elegant and historically important “piazzas” in Florence
Mercato Nuovo And Porcellino
The Porcellino Lodge was built in the 16th century. It was used and continues to be used as a market where it is possible to find handicrafts products like bags, belts and leather accessories, silk objects, hats and much more. The Porcellino Lodge takes its name from the Porcellino, a bronze boar with a fountain.
Definitely the most photographed site in Florence, Ponte Vecchio is full of jewelry shops and was also the set of many movies. Listen to the story of how it survived the Germans and the Flood of Florence in 1966.
The Uffizi Gallery contains one of the oldest and most famous art collections in the world. Built in 1560 by Giorgio Vasari, following the orders of Cosimo I de Medici, it had the initial purpose of housing the offices of the Florentine magistrates, as the Palazzo Vecchio was at one point too small.
Piazza Della Signoria
This piazza is just like it has been for centuries with its medieval houses and its old stone pavement. You can imagine just how it has been for all the people walking here before you. The majestic Uffizi Gallery stands close and add an air of elegance to the surrounding.
Piazza Del Duomo
Admire the beauty of this UNESCO world heritage square and its buildings. It took only 140 years to complete the Duomo! The Duomo, Giotto's Bell Tower and the Baptistery of San Giovanni are in fact the main tourist attractions of Tuscany's main city.
