Tour Details

Where better to learn about the Renaissance than in the heart of the Renaissance itself? As you tour Florence, stroll through the ancient roads, paved with the original stones laid by workers centuries ago. Feel like a part of history as you walk along the very steps that have been taken by famous artists and power families like the Medicis.

On your guided Florence tour, learn about the ideas behind the Renaissance and its impact on the rest of the world's culture and politics. Learn about Renaissance artists and their famous pieces, as well as the details of people's daily lives during this important time period. Stop by famous landmarks on your Florence walking tour and listen to your expert guide tell you the stories behind them. This Florence tour also takes you to some lesser known attractions that will help you to further understand the rich and complex history of the Renaissance.

On your Renaissance tour, pause to examine the Ponte Vecchio, where you will discuss its history and role as the oldest surviving bridge across the Arno river. As one the city's most famous images, seeing the Ponte Vecchio is essential to your stay in Florence. Next, enter the Piazza della Signoria, an L-shaped square in front of the Palazzo Vecchio. Admire Vasari's tile-roofed Corridoio exterior, and then enter Dante's old neighborhood. On your way to your Accademia Gallery tour, enjoy a walk through this historical center. You'll enjoy skip-the-line access to the Accademia Gallery, which holds Florence's most treasured work of art, Michelangelo's "David." As you admire this priceless and iconic masterpiece, your guide will spark an in-depth discussion covering all aspects of the statue. You will also have time to admire a slightly less famous, yet still important piece by Michelangelo, entitled "Slaves." As you examine this statue, notice the emotion in the images' faces, capturing the struggle and horror in their attempt to gain freedom.

By the end of your tour, you'll feel a true connection to the Renaissance era. This comprehensive yet intimate Renaissance tour will shower you in information, helping you to understand the culture and history of Italy's Renaissance.
