And by booking ahead, you won't waste any time waiting in line at the Accademia Gallery!
Delve into the historic center of Florence on a three hour walking tour including Accademia Gallery, Ponte Vecchio, the leather market, the Duomo and Uffizi Square. Your local guide will identify architecture from the Middle Ages and Renaissance eras as you stroll the timeless streets of Florence.

Start your tour bypassing the line with your skip-the-line ticket into the Accademia Gallery and marvel at Michelangelo's 17 foot David.

Dominating the Florentine skyline, Brunlleschi's imposing Duomo never fails to impress. Enter inside the astounding Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore. Restrictions on entry to the Cathedral may apply on Sundays and religious holidays. Gaze at the Baptistry Doors by Ghiberti, coined the “Gates of Paradise” by Michelangelo.

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

Visit the former Ancient Forum, now Piazza della Repubblica and a popular meeting place for writers and artists. Make sure to rub the nose of legendary il Porcellino' the boar, so that you may one day return again to Florence! Your tour finishes in Lungarno, facing Ponte Vecchio Bridge.

Our guide showed a deep knowledge of and passion for Florence. Being able to go straight into major exhibits is fantastic. It is not for those who want to linger at a specific point but it is a marvellous way of seeing the highlights and getting an orientation so that you can return at your leisure with better understanding of some of the deep history of Florence.

Awesome Tour. Paul was the best, gave us the history of the artist before seeing the art. It all made more sense. Would have loved to have spent more time in the Accademia to view more of the sculptures, a good reason to come back!
