Private Guided Tours of Florence: Buongiorno Firenze Experience with a local private guide
With a personal guide, you’ll start your tour of Florence from Basilica Santa Maria Novella, one of the most important churches in Italy with architectural elements spanning almost five centuries, from 1094 to the 1570s. After your guide points out the treasure trove of masterpieces inside, continue to Piazza della Signoria, the heart of social and civic life in Florence.
In this piazza you’ll find the Palazzo Vecchio , a prime example of 14 th -century architecture, and the Loggia dei Lanzi, a historic portico that hosts an impressive collection of statues from masters such as Cellini and Giambologna. After your guide shows you the most notable features and shares some historic anecdote, stroll over to the sparkling river and cross the oldest bridge in the city, Ponte Vecchio , where tiny bottegas still line the sides of the structure.
From there your guide will bring you to the Piazza Santa Croce and show you the basilica, all while providing you with the historical and artistic context to appreciate this remarkable site.
