Description

Discover Florence's historic center on this 3 hour 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 the city in its continued glory and discover its hidden gems, all in a single morning!

Our Florence tour begins with Skip the Line access to the Accademia Gallery where you'll have the unique opportunity to marvel at Michelangelo's statue of the Slaves and his magnificent 17 foot marble masterpiece, the David. Then we'll walk towards the astounding Florence Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore, from where Brunelleschi's dome dominates the skyline of Florence and never ceases to impress. Gaze at the Baptistry Doors by Ghiberti, coined the "Gates of Paradise" by Michelangelo and Skip the Line to enter the Duomo.

Learn about the fascinating history of Florence as you walk towards the heart of the Renaissance Civic and Political Center, famous for its ancient statues, glorious fountains, the famed 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 ends at Lungarno, facing the Ponte Vecchio Bridge.

Fantastic tour guide Anastasia! She was very knowledgeable, spoke English clearly, well paced, and gave us great recommendations too. A perfect way to see Florence in half a day (outside of the Duomo, Accademia featuring the statue of David, beautiful church of San Michele, Ponte Vecchio...). Thank you!

The tour started at 4pm but we were told that we couldn't go into the Duomo as it closed at 4.30. If it is advertised for th...e tour to start at 4 pm you should make it clear that you cannot enter the Duomo, it was quite disappointing more
