Tours that include Florence
Florence is the city of art, and anyone with the slightest appreciation for the subject will be utterly in awe of this spectacular city. Spend the days wandering the cobbled streets, visiting the incredible churches and museums filled with works by the most famous artists in history.
- Cathedrale de Santa Maria
- Meander through the streets of Oltrarno
- Visit Bell Tower for the view of the city
Gaze on Michelangelo’s “David” and see the spectacular dome-shaped Duomo, the Cathedrale de Santa Maria. Recharge with a gelato while you meander through the streets of the Oltrarno section of Florence which features intimate architecture with an astounding history and a wealth of art.
For an amazing view of the city, climb the 400-odd stairs of the Campanile, or Bell Tower, and to restore your strength, try a panino con lampredotto from any of the local street stalls. This is local cuisine dating back over 500 years, and it is very tasty – just don’t google what it is it until after you’ve tried it!
