Day 01
Florence

Discover the historic center of Florence on this three-hour Florence walking tour including the Ponte Vecchio, the imposing Duomo, elegant Uffizi Square, and the Accademia Gallery with Michelangelo's David. Stroll along the timeless streets lined with chief architecture of the Middle Ages and the Renaissance, admire Florence in its continued glory and discover its hidden gems, all in only 3 hours!

Our Florence tour begins with Skip the Line access to the Accademia Gallery where you will have the unique opportunity to marvel at Michelangelo’s statue of the Slaves and his magnificent 17-foot marble masterpiece: David. Then we'll walk towards the astounding Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore, where Brunelleschi's dome dominates the skyline and never ceases to impress. Gaze at the Baptistry Doors by Ghiberti, coined the Gates of Paradise by Michelangelo. Skip the Line to enter the Duomo. On the evening tour we will visit the cathedral on the outside only as the interior is closed to the public.

During the walking tour, you will learn about the fascinating history of Florence as you visit the heart of the Renaissance Civic and Political Center, famous for its ancient statues and glorious fountains. You will make your way towards the famous Uffizi Gallery and the Medieval Palazzo Vecchio. Our path continues as we head toward the Religious Center, stopping at the Church of Orsanmichele, where you will admire ingenious statues by famed artists such as Donatello, Ghiberti and Verrocchio.

Rub the nose of the legendary boar, il Porcellino, to ensure a return to Florence and visit Piazza della Repubblica, once the Ancient Forum, now a popular meeting place for famous writers, artists and locals.

The tour will end at Lungarno, facing the Ponte Vecchio Bridge.
