The first stop of the tour is Lucca, a city surrounded by its large 16th-century walls and once an independent state. Most of its buildings and architecture are unique testament of the history of the Middle Ages. On this tour you will have the opportunity to walk a suggestive stretch of the city walls, passing through the tree-lined avenue and enjoying incredible views over the whole city.
With a private accessible van you will be taken for lunch in a typical traditional Tuscan restaurant accessible to taste the dishes of the local tradition, among the most renowned in the whole country.

You will visit the Cathedral dominating Florence with its marvelous dome, to this day the tallest building in the whole city. In the 15th century it was the largest church in the world, whereas today it ranks third after St. Peter’s in Rome and the Duomo in Milan. However, the beauty and elegance of its marbles and frescoes make it a unique piece of art.
The tour continues to Piazza del Duomo, Basilica of Santa Maria del Fiore and Piazza San Giovanni, along with the Baptistery. These monuments are located in a single large pedestrian area, stretching all the way to Piazza della Signoria and Ponte Vecchio.

If you wish, upon reservation, you can take a guided tour of the Uffizi Gallery, one of the largest museums in the world and one of the oldest galleries in Europe.
The Uffizi Gallery boasts an incomparable artistic heritage, with thousands of paintings from medieval to modern times, as well as miniatures, sculptures, tapestries, drawings and prints.
