Meeting with a private licensed tour guide for a walking tour, which will allow you to visit the city landmarks and learn interesting details about its history and art. You will gaze up in wonder at the big red dome of Duomo, the Florence Cathedral, from the outside, close to the colored marble Giotto Bell Tower. You will be struck by the famous gilded Porta del Paradiso (gates of the Paradise) by Ghiberti of St. John’s Baptistery.
You will enter the elegant courtyard in Palazzo Vecchio, also called Palazzo della Signoria, which was the most important historic government building. You will learn the meaning and some allegorical symbols hidden in the statues kept inside the Loggia dei Lanzi. A short walk along some narrow streets in the core of the Medieval and Renaissance town to breath the atmosphere of bygone days and a halt for a sweet break: an Italian Cappuccino or Expresso with a Cantuccini tasting.
Your sightseeing tour will end close to Ponte Vecchio at the Uffizi Gallery, for a complete skip-the-line visit of its masterpieces, from The Birth of Venus and the Allegory of Spring by Sandro Botticelli, to Tondo Doni by Michelangelo, the Madonna del Cardellino by Raffaello and the Adoration of the Magi by Leonardo da Vinci and much more.
