History and the urban evolution of Florence are the main themes of this tour. From the Roman foundation to the Medieval libero comune, from Granducato di Toscana to the XIXth century Italian capital, we will retrace the most important historical events that formed the town as you see it today. We will start on Piazza Duomo, with the cathedral and its imposing Dome, designed by Brunelleschi, Giotto's Campanile and the Baptistry. Through the Medieval section of town near Dante's house, we will reach Piazza della Signoria, where Palazzo Vecchio dominates. From Ponte Vecchio we will enjoy the unforgettable view of the Arno river. Our walking tour will lead us to Porcellino market and Piazza della Republica, built when Florence became capital of the Italian Republic. The XIXth century square is located on the same place of the ancient Roman forum, where their past and present unite. Let's have another perspective on the city, following us to one of the most famous districts of Florence, Santa Croce or Santa Maria Novella. They're both structured around the squares that face the two imposing and famous basilicas.
Suggested entrances: either Basislica Santa Croce or Basilica Santa Marica Novella
