Great monuments are the landmarks of Florentine artistic culture: Piazza della Signoria and the Cathedral with the Giotto's belltower and Ghiberti’s large bronze doors at the Baptistry, the medieval churches with bands of frescoes; public as well as private palaces; Palazzo Vecchio (The Old Palace) Palazzo Pitti, Palazzo Medici and the charming Lungarno (the Arno river banks) with Ponte Vecchio (The Old Bridge) and its two rows of artisan shops.
The city is so rich in art that our eyes will be rapt by the magnificence of each corner of this small city.

After, time to relax yourself walking around narrows an ‘test’ air of art, traditions and history. You can also take the chance to do shopping at famous leather shops. At the end of the visit transfer back to Rome. On request we can arrange Dinner on the way back to Rome !
