Basilica of San LorenzoThis stimulating, thoroughly comprehensive, guided walking tour starts from the famous San Lorenzo Central market area, teeming with workshops and brightly decorative stalls, which surround the Medici Chapels and the Basilica of San Lorenzo - the Medici family parish church.
Piazza del DuomoShortly afterwards you turn into Piazza del Duomo, where
the triumphant bulk of the Cathedral greets
our eyes with its dome by Brunelleschi, the bell-tower by
Giotto and the Baptistery of St. John with its Doors of
Bargello PalaceYou thread through the medieval quarters where Dante Alighieri and Beatrice Portinari lived, until you come to the road covering the old Roman eastern wall and look up at the Bargello Palace.

Next, the Uffizi Gallery, one of the most important museums in the world. You then proceed to the Straw Market to see the famous Porcellino Fountain.
