Meet your guide in central Florence in time for a 9.15am departure and set out to explore the city’s highlights on foot. Start by exploring the lively San Lorenzo district, where to admire the Medici Chapel and the Basilica of San Lorenzo on the way to the Piazza del Duomo, home to Florence’s star attraction – the magnificent Duomo (cathedral). Spend time admiring the architectural wonders, including Brunelleschi’s Dome, Giotto’s Bell Tower and the Baptistery of St. John.
Continue through the medieval heart of Florence, as your guide points out landmarks such as the Bargello Palace, then explore Piazza della Signoria, home to the grand Palazzo Vecchio and the Uffizi Gallery, one of the world’s most important art museums. Pose for photos on the Ponte Vecchio (Old Bridge) and stroll down Via Guicciardini, before arriving at the final destination – the striking Pitti Palace, where your morning tour ends.
Take a break for lunch (own expense), before meeting up with your guide at 1.30pm for your afternoon tour. After an around 1-hour drive, arrive in Pisa and make a beeline for the city’s star attraction – the famous Leaning Tower. Once you’ve posed for photos in front of the iconic landmark, explore the rest of the UNESCO-listed Piazza dei Miracoli, admiring the Baptistery and visiting the grand Cathedral (entrance fees included).
After your guided tour, enjoy free time to explore the city independently, take photos, or shop for souvenirs before the return journey to Florence.
Back in Florence, your tour ends with drop-off at your hotel.
