Florence Walking Tour with Uffizi Gallery Tour Itinerary

It might be one of the oldest galleries in the world, but the Uffizi Gallery remains one of the finest places to admire an incredible collection of Renaissance masterpieces. However, before we arrive at the gallery, we’ll be spending the afternoon exploring Florence’s charming streets and historic landmarks. Visited by millions of tourists each year, Florence‘s many well-known squares continue to charm visitors with a rich variety of dining options and age-old attractions.

Led by an expert local guide, this afternoon walking tour begins at the Piazza San Firenze. An excellent example of 15th-century residential architecture, designed by the acclaimed architect Giuliano da San Gallo, this location was tastefully expanded throughout the 18th-century. We’ll continue down the nearby bustling alleyways, eventually reaching the towering Basilica di Santa Croce, a Franciscan church from 1295 that demonstrates the glory of Gothic Italian architecture. Sitting at one end of its namesake square, this monumental basilica is also referred to as the Temple of Italian Glories as buried here are several legendary figures, including Michelangelo, Galileo Galilei, and Niccolò Machiavelli.

Next, we’ll wander along the riverside promenade called Lungarno Torrigiani and experience the wonderful view of Ponte Vecchio. Undoubtedly one of Florence’s most recognizable sights, this spectacular medieval stone bridge spans across the Arno River and is home to a variety of fascinating shops. As you admire its grandeur, your guide will describe many of the remarkable stories about the bridge, including how it was spared from being bombed during World War II.

We’ll then take a short stroll to the Piazza della Signoria, the heart of Florence’s lively social scene. There are also plenty of historic landmarks to admire around this enormous square, but one of the highlights we’ll get up-close to is the Palazzo Vecchio. Featuring the renowned Loggia de’ Lanzi, statues, this is where you’ll find ‘Perseus with the Head of Medusa’ by Cellini, a famously gory bronze sculpture.

Finally, we’ll arrive at the world-class Uffizi Gallery. Founded in 1581, this large-scale museum offers a vast array of priceless works spread across two levels. There’s a lot to explore here, but some works that can’t be missed include Botticelli’s ‘Birth of Venus’, Leonardo’s ‘Annunciation’ and Michelangelo’s ‘Tondo Doni’. As this guided tour concludes, you’re free to continue exploring the Uffizi Gallery until closing time.
