Meet your guide in central Florence, overlooking Piazza Duomo. From there, see the Cathedral and Brunelleschi's Dome, as well as Giotto's Bell Tower, the Baptistery, and the Gates of Paradise. 

Walk down bustling Via Calzaioli, where you see the gothic Orsanmichele Church and end up near the Mercato della Paglia, where you can rub the nose of the pig statue and toss a coin into the fountain for luck. Cross the Ponte Vecchio to Piazza Signoria, the political center of the city and home to the Fountain of Neptune and other works of sculpture.

Take a guided tour of the Uffizi Gallery, where you see works by Masaccio, Cimbaue, Giotto, da Vinci, Michelangelo, and the famous 'Birth of Venus' and 'Primavera' by Botticelli.

GUIDED TOUR OF UFFIZI GALLERY

, Jul 2019
The walking tour in Florence was cancelled, not sure why. I have enjoyed the guided tour of Uffizi very much, it was very interesting to listen to the history of each painting we focused on. We were supposed to get a partial refund for the first part of the tour that was cancelled but I never received it.

Very informative tour around the town and Uffizi Gallery in particular. Tour guides for Florence Wonders and for Uffizi are very knowledgeable and patient. The meeting place posted on the voucher was not exactly where we actually met, which caused some confusion.
