Tour Overview
Once home to Dante, Leonardo, Michelangelo, and Machiavelli, the streets and squares of the city are teeming with history. It all 
began in ancient times when the Romans established a colony near the banks of the Arno. After the fall of the Roman Empire and
a period of political turmoil and warfare, Florence flourished in the later middle ages. By the mid-1200s Florence was minting its
currency; the golden florin became the dominant trade coin all over Europe. Thanks to this economic prosperity, wealthy Florentine,
bankers, merchants, and wool makers began to pour huge sums of money into public works, palaces, and churches, fueling the Renaissance.
The city enjoyed its prolific golden age with the rise of the Medici family. Then after a period of decline, the city witnessed a 
reawakening when it became the capital of Italy for a short time. Walk to amazing sites like Piazza's original sculpture, it could be
considered an outdoor museum. Learn the incredible history of the Ponte Vecchio, the city's oldest bridge, and how it survived the 
bombings of World War II. At Orsanmichele hear the story about how grain markets became a church. Cross Piazza Della Republica
and discover how the city was given huge make-over when it was the Capital of Italy. Then admire the incredible dome and the stunning
Cathedral in Piazza del Duomo.
Complete your tour of the town with a visit to one of its greatest Museums, the Uffizi Gallery. Let our expert guide lead your way
through this stunning art collection and learn how Florence became "the cradle of the Renaissance"
