Next you’ll stop in the Piazza della Signoria to marvel at the many statues that decorate it, including the famous replica of Michelangelo’s David. Dwarfing them all is the Palazzo Vecchio, the home of Florence’s government during the Renaissance and still one of the city’s most impressive buildings.

From there you’ll head across the iconic Ponte Vecchio bridge and into our favorite neighborhood, the Oltrarno, to see where the locals eat and hang out. You’ll also be introduced to lesser-visited gems like the Palazzo Pitti and Piazza Santo Spirito, along with the birthplace and portrait of Lisa Gherardini, the woman who modeled for da Vinci’s iconic ‘Mona Lisa’.

After 2.5 hours, and a delicious scoop of Florentine gelato on us, you’ll know your way around the city, and have a mental map of the spots you want to come back and visit when you have more time.  Your guide will also offer plenty of advice and restaurant recommendations to help you plan for the coming days.
