Florence Shore Excursion
About This Tour
The program today is to visit Florence, one of the most beautiful and important cities in Italy and the world. Florence is the cradle of the Renaissance, it is the birth place of some of the most important artists who left an invaluable artistic heritage and this alone makes it worth the visit. It is known for some awesome craftmanship which during the ages has come to that line that is a guarantee of quality: "Made in Italy". It is within Italy a great spot to taste some outstanding food and last but not the least a fantastic "Gelato". We, at Tours in Tuscany, thanks to our Know How and Expertise, are able to accomplish all of that in our day tour.
Our suggested tour will highlight Piazzale Michelangelo for a breathtaking view of the city. We will continue along the old Medieval City Walls to reach Ponte Vecchio, known as the golden bridge, next to Pitti Palace, which became the residency of the Medici family. From here we will proceed on to Santa Croce, a gothic church known as the pantheon of Florence, because of the important people buried in it and to name a few: Michelangelo, Galileo, Machiavelli. After we will head off to the Academia museum to see Michelangelo's famous David (we will book a no waiting in line access in your name if this is something you wouldn't want to miss). After a light lunch at a characteristic Trattoria or Ristorante away from the tourist traps we will focus on the core of Florence: the religious center, with its Cathedral, Bell Tower and Baptistery, and the political center with its Palazzo Vecchio or town hall in Piazza Signoria, which itself is an open air museum. After a little time for shopping and a great Gelato, at the right place, we will drive you back in time to board your ship.
We will be glad to personalize the tour to your interests, wishes and needs even during the day.
