What you will visit?

Piazza Del Duomo

Your walking tour pauses at the Piazza del Duomo to survey the superb cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore. The fourth largest church in the world, the Duomo was consecrated in 1436. Fillipo Brunelleschi, master architect of the Italian Renaissance, designed the cathedral’s green and white marble façade and the magnificent dome. The piazza also features the Baptistery, a unique octagonal building with gilded bronze doors. The east doors depict scenes from the Old Testament and they are often called the “Gates of Paradise.”



The gallery boasts a superb collection of works by Michelangelo including his monumental David.


Piazza della Signoria

The Palazzo Vecchio, Florence’s town hall, features high fortified walls and a giant tower. The Piazza also boasts a copy of Michelangelo’s David, as well as Cellini’s statue of Neptune. The square was also the site of the “bonfire of the vanities.” In 1497, the monk Savonarola persuaded Florentines to cast their luxurious goods into a massive bonfire to seek redemption.


Church of Santa Croce

Michelangelo, Machiavelli and Galileo are buried in this large Franciscan church which boasts one of the finest art collections in the city. The two chapels adjacent to the altar are decorated with Giotto’s frescoes of St. Francis and St. John. Santa Croce also features Donatello’s eloquent “Annunciation.”
