Meet your Private Guide in Florence and start your walking tour to discover the city universally known as the cradle of the Renaissance. In this wonderfully preserved city, you’ll witness the evidence of the incredible cultural movement of the Renaissance that transformed Florence and the rest of Europe in the 15th century, and extended its influence into all aspects of life: science, philosophy, art, religion, politics and literature. The great artists, architects, thinkers and political figures who led the Renaissance were born in the fertile lands in and around Florence, and all within the same century: Donatello, Brunelleschi, Leonardo da Vinci, Botticelli, Ghirlandaio, Michelangelo, Lorenzo the Magnificent de' Medici and Machiavelli, just to name a few.
Quite surprisingly, Florence’s treasures are all enshrined in a relatively small area which is the setting for our city walking tour. With your private guide you’ll take in some of the sights while admiring the Piazza del Duomo and Piazza della Signoria. You’ll be impressed by the stunning dome of the Duomo, the largest in the world at 45 meters in diameter, and the perfect harmony between the Cathedral and Baptistery. From the religious center you will then walk to the Political center and hear the fascinating stories of a city devoted to culture and liberty. The prestigious Ponte Vecchio and its inspiring view will help reveal the real life of an economically prosperous city and its wealthy historical families.
From there, you will continue with your private driver on this geographical and cultural immersion into the heart of Italy, as you discover Pisa and its famous Leaning Tower. While in most Italian cities the main square is generally called Piazza del Duomo, Pisa's main square has been renamed Piazza dei Miracoli (Plaza of Miracles), thanks to the Italian poet and writer, Gabriele D'Annunzio, who described Pisa as the "Prato dei Miracoli," the "meadow of miracles" being so very much impressed by its dreamy atmosphere.
After your pleasant stop in Pisa, you will head back to Florence, where your tour will finish and you will be left with memories for a lifetime.
