Day 1 - FLORENCE (OVERNIGHT IN FLORENCE)

Itinerary Image

Arrive at Florence/Pisa airport/train station. Optional transfer to the hotel in Florence. On this day there are no planned activities. If you arrive
in the morning, we suggest you to discover the city on your own.
Suggested itinerary: Walk into the well-largest art capital of the world. One third of all art treasures of Italy is located in the Tuscan capital.
Santa Croce, the largest Franciscan church in Italy, is considered the burial of important Italian personalities from history, art and literature.
Equally impressive is the Palazzo Vecchio in Piazza della Signoria with the replica of David by Michelangelo. Additional points of interest
include, without limitation the octagonal the patron saint of Florence Baptistery dedicated to San Giovanni and the Palazzo Medici-Riccardi, the
first palace of the early Renaissance in Florence.
The Ponte Vecchio is one of Florence’s landmarks and probably the most photographed bridge in the city. The most famous bridge of them all
was built at the narrowest part of the Arno. It’s distinguished as being the only remaining bridge to have houses and shops on it. In part this is
because something important was built on top of those: the Vasari Corridor. This secret passageway built by Vasari for Duke Cosimo I de’
Medici in 1565 links the Palazzo Vecchio to the Pitti Palace. In 1593, the jewelry stores that tourists so love were brought to the bridge on
command of Ferdinando, the Medici heir who thought that the previous tenants – butchers – smelled too bad in his corridor.
During WWII, the treasures of the Uffizi gallery were stored in the Corridor. Hitler had been on a tour of it at the start of the war, and perhaps
because of this, the Ponte Vecchio was the only bridge spared bombing during the German retreat of August 1944.
Take the time to visit one of the Food markets in central florence: There are two closed markets one is San Lorenzo’s (the largest and oldest) –
the other Sant’Ambrogio. Here you’ll get the chance to live the real florentine feel… you will smell, see and touch the freshest products and
above all you will get to taste whatever catches your attention!
Highly recommended would be of course the visit to the Uffizi Gallery, the world-famous art gallery with paintings of the European Paintings
of the 13th / 18th centuries. Tour of 4 Hours with entrance and guided visit to the Uffizi Gallery Museum in English or Italian. Overnight in
Florence.
