Florence Bike Tour (2.5 hours)
Make your own way to the start point in central Florence, put on your helmet and pedal behind your guide as you explore the city while learning about its top attractions. Plenty of photo stops are factored in to your 2.5-hour route.

Pass the Church of Santa Maria Novella and Florence Duomo — topped by the terracotta-colored Brunelleschi’s Dome — and cycle through Piazza della Repubblica and Piazza della Signoria, two of Florence’s bustling central squares. Admire the front of the Uffizi Gallery while hearing about the treasure trove of Renaissance art inside its walls, and work your way to the Ponte Vecchio, a medieval bridge and one of the city’s standout sights.

Pedal along the Ponte Vecchio, and gaze out over the River Arno as you head toward the Oltrarno neighborhood, home to many of the city’s artisans and quirky sights. Pass the Pitti Palace (Palazzo Pitti), from where the powerful Medici family ruled between the 16th and 20th centuries. Use your visit to the area to stop for a coffee or gelato, and then head back over the river to the start point where your tour finishes.

Skip the Line: Florence Accademia Gallery Tour (1.5 hours)
The Accademia Gallery in Florence is home to some of the finest works of Renaissance artwork in the world, so lines to enter are often long. Skip past them with your fast-track entrance ticket, and admire the wealth of artwork with your guide.

Works by the Renaissance supremo Michelangelo are given pride of place inside the gallery, so your guide’s commentary focuses on the beloved Florentine artist. Admire the unfinished sculptures of Prigioni and San Matteo, and then gaze in awe at the iconic statue of David in the central gallery — sculpted by a fresh-faced Michelangelo when he was just in his twenties.

After admiring David, visit more rooms with your guide to learn about other Renaissance artists such as Sandro Botticelli and Filippino Lippi. When your tour finishes, you can stay inside the museum for as long as you wish, to discover artwork from the Middle Ages as well as the Renaissance.
