Florence City Walking Tour

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 own currency; the golden florin became the dominant trade coin all over Europe. Thanks to his economic prosperity, wealthy Florence bankers, merchants and wool makers began to pour huge sums of money into public works, places, 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 Santa Croce and Piazza Della Signoria, a square with so much original sculpture, it could be considered an outdoor museum.

    Stop At: Piazza del Duomo, 50122, Florence Italy

    The construction of Santa Maria del Fiore Cathedral, the Duomo, began in the late 13th century with plans for an extensive structure topped by an octagonal dome. But less than 100 years later, as construction was well underway, these plans were scrapped to make way for an even larger structure. The revised plans called for a wider dome, stretching its diameter at the base and raising it higher above ground level. This new dome plan was perfect for satisfying the Florentines’ pursuit of superiority; the only problem was no one knew how to build it… until Brunelleschi arrived on the scene.
