Florence Day Tour – TRIP AT A GLANCE
Florence is considered an open air museum! The centre of the city is contained in medieval walls that were built in the 14th century to defend the city. At the heart of the city, in Piazza della Signoria, is Bartolomeo Ammanati’s Fountain of Neptune (1563–1565), which is a masterpiece of marble sculpture at the terminus of a still functioning Roman aqueduct. Perfectly preserved historic city, Florence has allowed art and culture to flourish since the 14th century. The city’s wealth from the cloth and trading industries allowed the Renaissance to begin here. A stroll through Florence takes you back in time. Begin with the Duomo, the city’s most important cathedral that is a marvel of architectural engineering. After this awe-inspiring visit, it’s time for an espresso or gelato at the hopping Piazza Signoria, also a great place for people watching. You can continue your walking tour along the picturesque Arno River until you reach the Ponte Vecchio, which translates to “old bridge” in English. This wonderful bridge is filled with ancient gold and silver shops that have not changed their design in centuries.
Don’t miss the oldest pharmacy in the world. When you come indoor you will experience the 400 year old store. What started with a pharmacy based on products from the monastery herbal garden is now producer of handmade exclusive perfumes, creams&balms, oils, candles, scented flowers etc – all based on herbal recipes.
In the afternoon, discover the “Galleria degli Uffizi”, one of the most famous museums in the world given the rich amount of unique artworks and masterpieces conserved within its walls, the majority from the Renaissance period. Located in the heart of Florence, the Uffizi Gallery hosts works of art by great Italian artists such as Botticelli, Giotto, Cimabue, Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci and Raffaello, just to name a few of the most famous. Its large collection has works from all centuries but a large part dates back to the periods between the 12th and 17th centuries.
