Florence Guided Tour
Round trip to Florence from Rome
Florence Guided Tour – After a short panoramic tour of its northern part, we will leave Rome, by the “Sun Route” motorway, crossing the regions Lazio and Umbria, to reach our destination: Florence. City of Etruscan- Roman origins, it flourished in the Middle Ages as a free commune. Furtherly refined by the Renaissance Art and enriched by the Medici rule, Florence is the cradle of Italian language.
If you take the Florence Guided Tour you will arrive in the heart of the city to visit the Galleria dell’Accademia, where the original David by Michelangelo is kept, together with the Third “Pietà” and the Prisons, also by Michelangelo (for technical reasons this visit could be replaced with a visit of the Opera del Duomo). We will then proceed to the Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore, with the magnificent dome projected by Brunelleschi, the Baptistry with the golden bronze doors by Ghiberti and Giotto’s Belfry. From here, we walk to Piazza della Signoria with the Palazzo Vecchio, Florence’s Town Hall, the Loggia dei Lanzi with the Perseus by Cellini and the Fountain of Neptune. After lunch, we will go to Piazza Santa Croce. Free time at disposal to visit the church of Santa Croce (with the graves of Michelangelo, Galileo, Rossini, Machiavelli) or to go into some typical shops, such as the ancient “School of Leather”.
