What To Expect
The tour starts from the peculiar Central market zone, characterized by its workshops and multicolored stalls, where the Medicean Chapels and Basilica di S. Lorenzo, the church of Medici's Family, are located.
In a short time you can reach Piazza del Duomo, where you can admire the Cathedral's interiors and its dome by Brunelleschi, the bell-tower by Giotto, and Saint John Baptistery with its Paradise Door. The tour continues with a visit to the medieval quarters where Dante Alighieri and Beatrice lived. Further on, you can find Palazzo del Bargello then Piazza della Signoria, a great "open-air sculpture museum" overlooked by the imposing Palazzo Vecchio. Next to it is the Uffizi Gallery, one of the most important museums in the world.
You will then proceed to the picturesque Mercato della Paglia (Straw market) where the famous Piggy Fountain is located. Walk along the street that leads to Ponte Vecchio, the "jewels bridge," and crossing it to reach the wonderful Pitti Palace.
