Morning

First places we visit in the morning are Piazza della Repubblica (Republic Square), where the story of Florence started in 59 b.C, the Curch of Orsanmichele (famous to preserve the original grain market structure and to be the Corporations Church), the Religious centre that includes the Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore with its Brunelleschi Dome, Giotto's bell tower, the Baptistery and the Paradise Gates.

Than we move to Ss. Annunziata Square, the first Renaissance Square of Florence with the Church of Ss. Annunziata and the famous Spedale degli Innocenti by Brunelleschi (it was the first orphanage in Europe, called "Hospital of the Innocents") and other bizarre stories and works of art in this square will capture your attention.

Next stop is the first Medici Palace called Palazzo Medici - Riccardi, the S. Lorenzo central market, here are the S. Lorenzo church, the Medici's Chapels that the Medici family built for their imposing tombs and the typical Florentine market where we can see the culinary culture of this city, with its stools of food, traditional dishes and products.
Here you can decide if to break the day - for something nice to eat or to grab easily on the way - as we would be here around noon time. (1 hour break)


Afternoon

In the early afternoon we will visit Dante's district with its charming medieval style, the tower houses where Florentines used to live in XIV c. and the famous poet's home and church.


Than we move to Piazza della Signoria, an open air museum, here is the Palazzo Vecchio or Old Palace from the XIII c, where the Michelangelo's David was located for 300 years, today a marble copy is in its place.

The Loggia dei Lanzi with its amazing statues and the Uffizi court. After this breathtaking area, we move to the Pig's Market (if you come in Florence you have to touch the Little boar, it's the tradition! ), next step is the Ladies Paradise...

The Ponte Vecchio or Old Bridge, the romantic shiny bridge where gold work shops are placed from the XVI c. (also known as husband's hell).

For last, passing through the area of the ancient roman theater we arrive in S. Croce, the Francescan district, with its amazing balisica and the big square, today surrounded by shops of gold and hands made leather products.
