An Evening in Florence
Your Evening Tour of Florence will start in Piazza delle Signoria. The history of Florence comes alive with stories of events like the infamous Bonfire of the Vanities.
Even in the evening, the square is full of life: locals meeting, children playing on the Loggia dei Lanzi, visitors stopping to see where Michelangelo’s David originally stood (and to snap a pic with the copy). If it’s still open, peak inside the courtyard of the imposing Palazzo Vecchio, then wander past the Uffizi Gallery and down to the River Arno.
Over the Arno
You’ll cross the river at its narrowest point on the famous Ponte Vecchio. On the other side, you’ll discover the Oltrarno neighborhood and the Medici’s Pitti Palace. You’ll catch glimpses of the lovely Boboli Gardens as you walk, tempting you to come back. Many forget this quieter part of Florence and miss its treasures like the first work by the young Michelangelo at the Basilica di Santo Spirito.
Stop for a tasty break at a traditional gelateria. Like a local, you’ll enjoy strolling through the streets with a gelato, marveling at the beauty of Florence. As you pass through some of the famous shopping areas, like Via Roma and Piazza della Repubblica, your guide will give you some great tips on the best places to shop and eat.
Your Evening Tour of Florence will end outside the wonderful Duomo with stories of Brunelleschi, Giotto and Ghiberti, who transformed the square with their art.
