Ponte Vecchio
Next, you will head to one of the legendary symbols of Florentine elegance - Ponte Vecchio. Although it is now home to luxury jewelry shops, this bridge was not always such a lavish part of the city. In the past, Ponte Vecchio was home to Florence’s smelly meat markets! Your guide share the captivating story of the bridge’s transformation throughout time, as well as why it was the only bridge spared during the bombings of World War 2. Make sure to have your camera ready - the view from Ponte Vecchio is one of the most picturesque in Florence!

Piazza della Signoria
After taking plenty of photos on Ponte Vecchio, your guide will head in the direction of Piazza della Signoria. This historic, L-shaped square is a beautifully decorated “open air museum,” where the history of Florence unfolds. Throughout time, this was always the civic heart of Florence - where people heard news of the government, where they defended their city from rivals, where they feasted for holidays, and where they met with friends. Because of its importance, the powerful Medici family decided this was the perfect place to build Palazzo Vecchio, and ultimately, Loggia dei Lanzi, home to priceless, famous sculptures. Did you know that the “David” sculpture by Michelangelo was originally supposed to be placed in Piazza della Signoria? Learn all about this special corner of Florence from your passionate guide!

As the suspense builds, your walking tour will culminate in the most famous museum of the city - the Uffizi Gallery. Save time by following your guide past the lines, and enter the treasure trove of Renaissance art! Your guide will lead you through the elegant halls and rooms in chronological order, from the thirteenth to the eighteenth century - making sure you spend the most time at the most famous works, out of the nearly 2,000 masterpieces showcased in the Uffizi. Between halls, you can admire ancient Roman and Greek sculptures, the frescoed ceilings, and the lovely views from the large windows.
Your 1.45 hour Uffizi Gallery tour will begin in the 1200’s, better known in Florence as the birth of the Renaissance era. Your guide will lead you to discover Gothic works of art covered in gold, and beautifully depicting images of Madonna and the child.
