Piazzale Michelangelo Walking Tour

We'll meet at 9 am in the Piazza di Santa Maria Sopr'Arno, in the heart of the historic centre of Florence.

We'll start the walk up to a famous viewpoint named after a famous genius who was a painter, sculptor and architect. You can guess who we're talking about, can't you? To get there, we'll climb up a hill with beautiful views of the dome of Santa Maria del Fiore and other buildings in the old town.

We'll stop at the Giardino delle Rose or Rose Garden, located on a charming terrace from where we'll pause to take in the stunning views.

Then we'll then continue on our way to the Piazzale Michelangelo. From this viewpoint, crowned by a bronze replica of Michelangelo's David, you'll enjoy unparalleled views of the capital of Tuscany - cameras at the ready!

From here we'll start to climb the steps leading up to the Basilica of San Miniato al Monte, a masterpiece of Florentine Romanesque architecture. After admiring its beautiful façade, we'll start our descent along an avenue surrounded by olive trees, gardens and majestic villas such as the Gioiello, where Galileo Galilei spent the last years of his life.

We'll also pass by other emblematic points along the route, such as the residence where the composer Tchaikovsky lived, the Villa del Poggio Imperiale, a historic property of the Medici, or the astronomical observatory.

Our route will end near the Ponte Vecchio, where we'll say goodbye at 12 pm.
