What You Can Expect

Private Tour: Florence Walking Tour

Palazzo Vecchio, Florence

Starting at Piazza Santa Maria Novella (exterior visit), with its beautiful Dominican church you'll then proceed through the characteristic little square of the Croce al Trebbio, and then reach Palazzo Strozzi.

Further on you'll arrive at Palazzo Davanzati and the 14th century Palagio di Parte Guelfa by Brunelleschi. Your English-speaking guide will lead you to Ponte Vecchio, the 'Jewelers Bridge' and a symbolic Florentine icon. Pass through the Piazzale degli Uffizi to enter Piazza della Signoria, a splendid open-air sculpture museum, overlooked by the famous and imposing Palazzo Vecchio.

Your private guided tour continues through the heart of the Medieval city to Dante Alighieri's house and church, and then finally to Cathedral Complex.

Drop-off is included in the duration of the tour but if you prefer, you can finish in the town center after the walking tour.

This in-depth, private tour is hosted by an English-speaking guide. Please list any special interests you have (art, architecture, history, culture) at the time of booking to alert your guide, so that he or she can prepare for your private tour.

Laura was fantastic! She was so informative and we were really able to get a good overview of Florence.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2015

5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2015

We had just arrived in Florence and this quick tour 2 1/2 hours was perfect to get a lay of the land in anticipation of our four-day visit. Our guide, Caterina, was extremely knowledgeable and charming. Since it was just the four of us, she quickly ascertained the group's interest history and food and tailored the highlights so even our 18-year-old was engaged. An added benefit -- we were staying in Oltrarno and our tour started and ended there. She took time to show us the neighborhood's highlights many -- especially for young adults, where to shop and best trattorias. As we discovered in the days to come, she was on the money every time!
