HIGHLIGHTS OF FLORENCE

On this day trip, we recommend going to Florence by train and your private guide will meet you at the Florence railway station. As an alternative, we can provide a private car with driver.

After meeting your guide, you will start the tour with a visit to one of the city’s eternal masterpieces; Michelangelo’s David in the Academy Gallery. From there, you move on to the city’s religious center where you will see the Baptistery, Giotto’s bell tower, and the Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore - the Duomo - with its famous dome by Brunelleschi. This square recalls the ancient past with its unique charm.

You will then visit the picturesque Signoria Square, where you may take the opportunity to admire statues by Cellini, Giambologna and Ammannati before proceeding to the famous Ponte Vecchio and then the Santa Croce Church, containing the tombs of illustrious Florentine citizens such as Michelangelo, Galileo and Machiavelli, as well as fascinating works by Giotto and Donatello.

MEET THE ARTISANS

The Renaissance in Florence marks the height of the development of the artisan as an artist; the artisan effectively became an artist, the man who created new techniques and new styles. Workshops were open to the world, and became meeting-places where ideas were exchanged and master artisans consolidated their particular creative skills and reputations.

This tour is a relaxed walk along the narrow streets of the Oltrarno district,
the less crowded and more authentic side of Florence.

Your official guide will take you along streets with little artisan workshops where you will stop by and watch them work; silver, gold, perfume, leather... another Florence, a link between the art and craft from the Renaissance with that of the present day.
Return to Rome at the end of the day by train or by limo.

If you have never been to Florence before, this visit will immerse you in the historic and artistic heart of the city.
