Located in the very heart of Tuscany, in a basin crossed by the Arno River, the magnificent city of Florence stands as one of the most beautiful cities in Europe, filled with historical relics and artistic masterpieces by the greatest masters of Humanism and the Renaissance. You can read it in Dante, see it in Michelangelo, or just be engulfed by it when you walk into a church. 

This city tour highlights key Renaissance sites and masterpieces, starting with the religious center of the city where you'll admire the Duomo and its impressive Dome designed by Brunelleschi, and the Baptistery of Saint John, one of the oldest buildings in Florence. From the religious center you will walk to the political center, and enjoy a pleasant stroll through Piazza della Signoria, surrounded by its ancient buildings and the Loggia dei Lanzi. In this open air museum you will see original masterpieces by Giambologna and Cellini. From there, you'll cross the famous Ponte Vecchio, the medieval bridge on the Arno River. As a final pendant to this itinerary, you’ll visit the impressive Uffizi Gallery, one of the largest museums in the Western world, holding over 3,000 works of notable art. The Museum complex is deeply bound to the history of the city and the House of Medici, and echoes the splendor of a whole era. Masterpieces by Giotto, Masaccio, Piero della Francesca and Botticelli are waiting for you, along with the most recent Caravaggio, Tiziano and Tintoretto and the stunning Leonardo da Vinci’s Annunciation and Adoration of the Magi.
