A Florentine “passeggiata” at sunset. Our promenade is designed as an orientation walk to enjoy the real taste of Florence during the truly magic moment of the sunset when its light enhances the city’s colours. This is the moment when Florence is “yours”, no crowds, only the Florentines taking their “passeggiata”.
Our tour starts in Piazza Repubblica, the square where Florence originated as a roman city; we reach the Cathedral, the so called Duomo, with its imposing Dome and the famous Baptistery doors, named by Michelangelo the Gates of Paradise, illuminated by the special light of the sunset.
Our taste of Florence wouldn’t be complete without a visit to the political heart of the city, Piazza Signoria; then, crossing the courtyard of the Uffizi Gallery, you will suddenly find yourself on the banks of the river Arno, where the most spectacular view of Ponte Vecchio will be revealed to you. This is one of those special moments when a photo is a must!
Our walk now leads us to the other side of the river. We will cross the oldest bridge in the city, Ponte Vecchio. The bridge is unique thanks to its 14th century structure, and the sparkle of its many jewelers’ windows.
We emerge into the Oltrarno district, the artisans’ quarter, where our tour ends. We will leave you in one of the most characteristic little squares of the city, near Pitti Palace, the last royal residence of the Medici family. Here you may experience a Florentine “aperitivo,” a small drink before dinner (not included in the tour price).The purpose of our walk is to allow you to experience the atmosphere of the city: we want you to absorb the city through its historical past and its modern present.
