Why take a walking tour of Florence?
Florence tours and attractions are easy to navigate once you get the hang of the city. It's a small place, with no traffic in the center and can be easily explored on foot. For these reasons, a Florence walking tour is the best way to see all the points of interest while in the city.
Florence boasts charming little streets, a river and locally-run delis and restaurants. You can easily imagine yourself back in time while you stroll through the peaceful city. When it comes to shopping in Florence, the scent of leather will draw you into many of the tourist shops, but the daily flea market is probably where you'll seek out the best finds. After you've browsed the stalls, you have a choice of cafes and Florence restaurants.
If you're looking for history, you'll see plenty of it on a Florence walking tour. The 17th century bell tower of Chiesa di San Jacopo Sopr'Arno is beautiful and the viewing point at Piazzale Michelangelo, both included in guided walking tours, offer equally breathtaking experiences.
Michelangelo is perhaps the most famous Florentine and one major reason people come to Florence. The church of Santa Croce, also included on walking tours, offers the chance for visitors to view the famous artist's tomb.
