The tour begins with the discovery of the historic city center with the visit to the scenic square and Gothic Church of Santa Croce (exterior). Crossing Ponte alle Grazie, a pleasant guided walk on the left side of the Arno River will allow you to admire the elegant architecture of the Uffizi Gallery and the striking aerial structure of the Vasari Corridor and, on the background, the Dome of the Cathedral and Giotto's Bell Tower, the Towers of Palazzo Vecchio and Bargello. The ancient Church of Santa Felicita (*) surprises us with its portico surmounted by the Vasari Corridor and once inside, gives us the amazing colours of two masterpieces by Pontormo, hosted in the Chapel designed by Brunelleschi. Then crossing the iconic Ponte Vecchio, after having caressed the nose of the famous “piglet” statue, we arrive in the monumental Piazza Signoria, with the imposing Palazzo Vecchio (exterior) and the beautiful Loggia dei Lanzi where the sculptures of great Renaissance artists are collected. The tour continues with the guided visit of

Wonderful tour
Alicia Walthall, 01/2020
The first time we enjoyed a share tour and we really loved it! The tour was great and we learned a lot from our knowledgeable guide. If I come back to Florence I'll enjoy another experience with this company.
5 stars!

"I did this tour with my wife a few days ago and it was one of the best experiences of our holiday! The check-in was smooth and our guide immediately introduced us to the history of Florence. We followed our guide in a relaxing stroll which led us to Santa Croce church and the gorgeous Piazza della Signoria, where we learnt interesting anecdotes regarding the Medici family and its residence, the Palazzo Vecchio. We got then inside the Uffizi museum, where we were able to admire stunning Renaissance paintings that my wife loved, as the Birth of Venus by Botticelli. We could understand the guide very well and she was really friendly and open to any request. 5 well deserved stars!"
Fantastic

Unforgettable tour

We had an unforgettable unique experience in Florence and at the Uffizi Gallery with our lovely tour guide and our small group of 10 people. We were so lucky the Uffizi gallery was not so busy on a Saturday afternoon in January and we enjoyed every moment of our interesting tour. Thanks to our guide, for explaining everything so well and contributing to our perfect experience.
Tour recommended!

My husband and I really enjoyed the tour. Our guide was very informative and took us to discover wonderful places in historic centre of Florence. Then, inside the Uffizi he chose a good selection of paintings covering the main masters and a good variety of others. The Uffizzi Gallery is huge. We highly recommend the tour.
Consigliatissimo!

Ho scelto di acquistare questo tour perché viaggiando da sola avevo voglia di essere coccolata e guidata alla scoperta della bellezza e così è stato. Un tour a piedi attraverso una parte di Firenze che non conoscevo è stata seguita dalla visita alla Galleria degli Uffizi: uno dei musei più belli mai visti in vita mia. Non solo per le opere dal valore inestimabile che ospita ma anche per il museo stessi. Mi ha colpito la sala della Tribuna, decorata magnificamente e piena di riferimenti simbolici. Consigliatissimo!
