Skip The Line: Best of Florence Walking Tour including Accademia Gallery and Duomo

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.

Please note: The 7pm Departure will take you to visit the same sights that you will visit in the morning but quieter to make your experience more special. However, the Duomo won't be visited inside as the Cathedral is closed. A detailed exterior visit of the Duomo will be given instead.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2014

Paul was excellent. The content of the tour was absolutely second to none and the way it was delivered made a lot of information very memorable. We were so impressed we booked another tour with the same company for Rome and weren't disappointed. Highly recommended for everybody visiting Florence.

The guide was the best. We went on many tours while in Europe and this guide was absolutely our favorite. We learned so much from him and enjoyed Florence so much more after learning the history and stories behind the sights. No other your guides measured up after this tour.
