Afterwards, during your lunch break, you are free to choose a dining place that suits your budget and desires, as lunch is not included in the tour price, however our knowledgeable guides will be ready to offer you great advise on where to dine.
The walking tour of the city includes the medieval Ponte Vecchio, or “Old Bridge”, noted for it's shops and jewellers. You will visit Piazza della Signoria, the famous L-shaped square in front of the Palazzo Vecchio, and then visit Il Porcellino, the local Florentine bronze fountain of a boar. You will also see Palazzo Strozzi, and then the world-famous Duomo where your tour will jump the queue with its reserved access.
For those still hungry for unique experiences, for a supplement of 35 Euro per person, you can also enjoy the famous statue of David housed in the Accademia, a masterpiece of Renaissance sculpture, which will be a one hour and 20 minutes extension to the tour.
You will then have some free time for some shopping, or relaxing, before our office representative will help you get back to Florence Train Station for the 6.08pm train that brings you back into Rome City Centre at 7.40pm.
