Private Florence Walking Tour

Florence Sightseeing with a Licensed Guide

You can (and should) explore Florence on your own, walking the streets and taking in the beautiful architecture. But there is so much to see and discover in Florence if you take a private Florence walking tour with one of our experienced tour guides.

Our licensed tour guides will bring you into the heart of Florence, starting Piazza della Signoria, the political centre of the city, where the amazing Palazzo Vecchio stands and the Loggia dei Lanzi hosts a collection of unique statues by great artists. Follow your local Florentine guide through the colonnade of the Uffizi Gallery, one of the most visited museums in the world to get to famous Ponte Vecchio Bridge and take a moment to marvel at Florence’s artisan jewellery shops.

Walk along with the guide to Dante’s house once walked. See through the eyes of a local and gain insights into the city’s colourful history. Complrete your tour at stunning Piazza Duomo. This breath-taking gothic cathedral has one of the world’s largest domes — in fact, after it was completed in 1436, the Duomo di Firenze (the Italian name for it) had the largest dome in the world and it still holds the world record for being the largest brick dome in the world. The great terracotta dome is situated alongside Giotto’s bell tower and the Romanesque Baptistery. 

If Florentine art is of particular interest to you, you may like to also take our Galleria Accademia Florence Tour — this gallery boasts the greatest collection of Renaissance art from Florence, with many of Michelangelo’s sculptures, including his legendary work: David.

Tour Description

Stop 1

Meeting Point

Meet your guide in Piazza della Repubblica, next to the carousel. Just look for your guide with the official CITYWALKERS YELLOW umbrella and T-shirt.
Stop 2

Piazza del Duomo

Admire the beauty of this UNESCO world heritage square and its buildings. It took only 140 years to complete the Duomo! The Duomo, Giotto's Bell Tower and the Baptistery of San Giovanni are in fact the main tourist attractions of Tuscany's main city.
Stop 3

Dante's house

According to documentary evidence this is the house of the Alighieri family once lived. Dante is undoubtedly the most important Italian poet considered the father of the Italian language.
Stop 4

Orsanmichele

An old barn converted into a church, Orsanmichele was built on the land where the garden of the former San Michele monastery was located and now houses a beautiful collection of statues inside.
Stop 5

Mercato Nuovo and Porcellino

The Porcellino Lodge was built in the 16th century. It was used and continues to be used as a market where it is possible to find handicrafts products like bags, belts and leather accessories, silk objects, hats and much more. The Porcellino Lodge takes its name from the Porcellino, a bronze boar with a fountain.
Stop 6

Piazza della Signoria

This piazza is just like it has been for centuries with its medieval houses and its old stone pavement. You can imagine just how it has been for all the people walking here before you. The majestic Uffizi Gallery stands close and add an air of elegance to the surrounding.
Stop 7

Uffizi

The Uffizi Gallery contains one of the oldest and most famous art collections in the world. Built in 1560 by Giorgio Vasari, following the orders of Cosimo I de Medici, it had the initial purpose of housing the offices of the Florentine magistrates, as the Palazzo Vecchio was at one point too small.
Stop 8

Ponte Vecchio

Definitely the most photographed site in Florence, Ponte Vecchio is full of jewelry shops and was also the set of many movies. Listen to the story of how it survived the Germans and the Flood of Florence in 1966.
