Spend your morning exploring charming Florence. With our engaging local Guide we start from the historic Central Market, with its workshops and multicolored stalls, where you can find the Medici Chapels and the Basilica of S. Lorenzo, the church of the Medici family, where we visit the elegant cloister, designed by Brunelleschi, the architect of the famous Dome: a green oasis of peace in the heart of the Medici district. We admire the beauty of the Palazzo Medici Riccardi and in no time we reach Piazza del Duomo, where you can admire the impressive Cathedral with the Cupola del Brunelleschi, Giotto's bell tower and the Baptistery of S. John with the Gates of Paradise. The Tour continues visiting the medieval quarters where Dante Alighieri (the great Poet of the “Divine Comedy”)and Beatrice lived and where you also find the beautiful Badia Fiorentina with the characteristic exagonal tower. Further ahead is the austere Bargello Palace. Walking along the Arno river you reach the Ponte Vecchio, the famous "jewels bridge". Then we proceed to the picturesque Mercato della Paglia (Straw Market), where is the famous Fontana del Porcellino. Not too far away, there is the elegant Piazza della Signoria, a great "outdoor sculpture museum", dominated by the imposing Palazzo Vecchio. Next to it the Uffizi Gallery, one of the most important museums in the world. By crossing the bridge, you will reach the wonderful Pitti Palace where our tour ends.
