You’ll also see Michelangelo's unfinished Slaves which give unprecedented insight into the master's creative process.

Visit the Incredible Florence Duomo

Another highlight is Florence’s famous cathedral, the Duomo. As you admire its monumental exterior from the Piazza del Duomo, your guide will tell you the improbable story of Filippo Brunelleschi and how this Renaissance man re-discovered knowledge lost for more than a millennium to build the Cathedral’s world-famous dome - one of the largest on earth.

Before leaving the Piazza, you’ll stop at the Baptistery. During a close look at the world-renowned Baptistery doors, dubbed the 'Gates of Paradise', your guide will tell you the story of the cutthroat competition that created this glittering masterpiece. Don’t forget to ask plenty of questions—that’s the beauty of a tour with only 15 people, maximum!

Enjoy a Florence Walking Tour of the Best Piazzas, Outdoor Art & Ponte Vecchio Bridge

Your Florence walking tour also includes a breezy city stroll past the highlights of the city. At the Piazza della Signoria, you’ll admire Florence’s other world-famous sight, the towering Palazzo Vecchio, visiting the original site for Michelangelo’s ‘David’, where an exact replica stands. Hear the stories behind the statues at Orsanmichele Church, rub the Porcellino pig’s nose for good luck, and feel swept up by history at the Piazza della Repubblica, the ancient Roman forum that later became the city’s Jewish ghetto. Top if all off by crossing the Ponte Vecchio, the most picturesque bridge in all of Florence – perhaps all of Italy.

By the end of your Florence walking tour, you won’t just have “seen” Florence’s most famous sights; you’ll have discovered their histories, stories, and what makes them so notable.

The tour was perfectly as described. We got into see David almost immediately. Our guide took time to describe many of the works around us and gave historical context to Michelangelo and his art. We learned much about the Medici family and saw a home that was built for one of them upon return after an exile. This is just a bit of the tour. Our guide Florinda was full of energy and insight. It seemed that she was a student artist/ art historian in Florence. She kept us in the shade most of the walk which we were grateful for. :-) I attended with my elderly mother and my 10 year old daughter and they were all satisfied with the tour. Thank you so much to our guide and ‘Walks of Italy’

Chiara is a lovely & knowledgeable guide. On a hot & crowded day in Florence, she kept our group upbeat & curious about the history. We got to appreciate David from all angles due to her patience. She is such a great ambassador of the city!
