Description

A morning city tour among art, landscapes and Renaissance masterpieces. This discovery tour begins from two of the most beautiful and romantic spots in the world: Piazzale Michelangelo and Fiesole, two unmissable destinations for landscape lovers! Here you can drink in the sights and historic panoramas of Florence lying before your eyes. 

Your professional guide will be at your disposal for the whole morning, pointing out the main monuments of the city from these magnificent panoramic terraces: the unmistakable Brunelleschi's Cupola, the Palazzo Vecchio and the countless Romanesque-style churches that dot the whole city as well as Florence rolling hills. 

Then you plunge into the city itself: first stop, the Accademia Gallery, famous for its David of Michelangelo, the unfinished works of art Prigioni, San Matteo, la Pietà di Palestrina and other masterpieces by the great artist. You will learn some interesting facts about the tormented life of Michelangelo and why his masterpiece has become the symbol of Florence during the centuries. 

The tour ends with a stroll through the historic streets of the city to arrive in Piazza Duomo, where you will learn the secrets of Giotto’s Bell Tower, and discover the beauty of the Baptistery with its golden, bronze doors (including the famous Porta del Paradiso). 

Last but not least, there is the breathtaking Cathedral itself (external visit). 

Please note: This tour does not include hotel pick up and drop off service. This means that you will have to arrange your transfer on your own in order to reach the designated meeting point and start the tour.
