Highlights
    What to Expect
    Your tour will begin in central Florence, where you’ll meet your guide and set out into the evening. As you travel the historic streets and squares, hear about how the medieval era paved the way for Florence’s Golden Age. Your guide will discuss how the city’s commercial wealth during that period was offset by dangerous power struggles and cut-throat business dealings.

    No trip to Florence is complete without hearing the name Medici, the influential family who found themselves at the center of many scandals throughout the Middle Ages. Visit the Palazzo di Bianca Cappello, constructed by Cosimo Medici for his mistress and hear the story behind the couple’s mysterious deaths. Then, head past the residence of one of Medicis’ greatest rivals, the Palazzo Strozzi, built for the Strozzi family. Continue on to the lavish Palazzo di Parte Guelfa, the headquarters of the Guelph family, another political rival of the Medici family.

    Afterward, follow your guide toward some of Florence most beloved sites, such as the bustling Piazza della Signoria and the Uffizi Gallery, home to masterpieces from Botticelli, Michelangelo, and more. As the sun goes down, stroll to the Arno River and admire a scenic view of the Ponte Vecchio.

    Your final stop will be at one of Florence’s top gelato shops, where you can select from a wide of array of delicious flavors and walk the streets like a real Florentine, with ice cream in hand. Your tour will conclude in central Florence at Ponte Santa Trinità.

    There were only about 20-25 people. It was intimate enough to enjoy. Loved this tour!
