About the tour

Beginning where we left off, in the main square (Piazza della Signoria) and go towards the river Arno, along the right bank past the Ponte Vecchio (Old Bridge), then through Limbo and even Purgatory, to see some of the best examples of Renaissance architecture in city. Finally, we reach the Dominican friars’ church of Santa Maria Novella with its stunning façade and, just around the corner, the famous Pharmacy.

I love Florence tours with Bruce! And I love Bruce without “chill pill” or filter. This is not a dating site or bachelor show where you get to be judged based on your looks or being a suck up. He’s an excellent tour guide! People need to stop complaining when they get to see other parts of the world for FREE (even tipping is optional), you have no right to complain. Log out or move on to another tour, but don’t try to politically correct him or criticize him, enough! I never felt any attitude from Bruce. His tours are always interesting and full of historical facts. And that’s what I’m here for. Thank you for showing us Florence from your perspective and taking the time from your day to do it for us. I appreciate you, love your personality and enjoy your tours! I look forward to discovering more of Florence with you! Grazie mille!
