The Old Bridge - Ponte Vecchio
Ever since the 13th century, the Ponte Vecchio bridge has been home to built-in shops. The Vasari Corridor connects the Palazzo Vecchio with the Palazzo Pitti crosses the bridge. In this elevated corridor, the Medici Family felt secure as they moved between their home and the palace. To this day, you can still buy jewelry on the bridge.

All worth it!
With our recent visit to Rome, we booked three tours with The Roman Guy - Vatican Tour with Sistine Chapel, Day Trip from Rome to Florence, and the Colosseum Tour. All the guides (Jed, Benjamin and Olga, and Nina) were all great and vey knowledgeable. We’ll recommend them to anybody who wants to make their Roman holiday a truly memorable one!
Florence day trip
This tour was great! We were in Rome for a while and knew we wanted to take a day trip and this made it so simple. All our transportation was figured out and our guide was amazing. Can't recommend enough!
Amazing day trip to see Michaelangelo's David!
This was a great way to spend one of my days in Italy! I knew I wanted to see Florence (I love the history and the art) and this trip made it so simple. The Roman Guy dealt with the tickets and we had someone to guide us on the train as well as around Florence. Seeing the David was so great! I can't wait to go back and see more of Florence .
