With our engaging local Guide we start from San Lorenzo square, where you can find the Medici Chapels and the Basilica of S. Lorenzo, the church of the Medici family, where we visit the elegant cloister, designed by Brunelleschi, the architect of the famous Dome: a green oasis of peace in the heart of the Medici district. We admire the beauty of the Palazzo Medici Riccardi and in no time we reach Piazza del Duomo, where you can admire the impressive Cathedral with the Cupola del Brunelleschi, Giotto's bell tower and the Baptistery of S. John with the Gates of Paradise.  Then we proceed to the picturesque Mercato della Paglia (Straw Market), where is the famous Fontana del Porcellino. Not too far away, there is the elegant Piazza della Signoria, a great "outdoor sculpture museum", dominated by the imposing Palazzo Vecchio. Next to it the Uffizi Gallery, one of the most important museums in the world. All along the trail between Palazzo Vecchio, Uffizi Gallery and Pitti Palace you will follows from the outside the famous Vasari Corridor which was commissioned on the occasion of the wedding between Francis I and Joan of Austria and built in the record time of only 5 months by Giorgio Vasari, a precious jewel that serve the purpose of giving the ruling family of Florence a safe passage between the seat of government and their home. Walking along the Arno River you will pass through the Ponte Vecchio, the famous "jewels bridge" and by crossing the Old bridge (Ponte Vecchio), you will reach the wonderful Pitti Palace. The Tour continues visiting the Medieval quarters where Dante Alighieri (the great Poet of the “Divine Comedy”) and Beatrice lived and where you also find the beautiful Badia Fiorentina with the characteristic exagonal tower and the austere Bargello Palace.

Una guida al di sopra delle aspettative
Maria Caputo, 07/2019
Ho deciso di acquistare questo tour perché volevo conoscere Firenze guidata da un professionista che mi togliesse tutti i dubbi e le curiosità che da tempo avevo. La guida Fabio, fiorentino di nascita, è riuscito a far volare il tempo come credo nessuna guida prima d'ora aveva fatto. Ha fin da subito instaurato con noi un rapporto amichevole e ci ha presentato Firenze come uno scrigno di tesori da ammirare e rispettare. Ne sono rimasta davvero affascinata!

Una visita a piedi davvero ben fatta! Eravamo un piccolo gruppo di italiani e francesi e la guida è stata perfettamente in grado di soddisfare tutti grazie alla sua passione, alla sua simpatia e alla capacità di passare da una lingua all'altra coinvolgendo tutti quanti. E poi Firenze è magnifica...consigliato!
