Florence Skip the Line Tours

9,246 reviews
The Renaissance city of Florence attracts thousands of travelers with its top-tier art museums, galleries, and cathedrals. To avoid wasting time and energy waiting in line, book a skip-the-line tour in advance. Here are a few of our favorites.

Skip the Line at Florence Art Museums
While Michelangelo’s David statue may be considered perfect, the lines to see the sculpture in person are anything but. The queue for the Accademia Gallery can stretch around the block, so take part in a fast-track tour to skip the line entirely, or choose a Florence art museum tour that visits the Accademia in the morning and the Uffizi Gallery in the afternoon. It’s also possible to beat the crowds with an early-access Uffizi tour, which will allow you to enjoy the museum’s treasures in with only a few others. Here you’ll find works by Da Vinci, Botticelli, Michelangelo, Titian, and Caravaggio.

Skip the Line at the Florence Duomo
You can wander through Florence and visit its galleries, but it isn’t until you climb the Duomo that you know you’ve arrived. As one of Europe’s most popular sites, the Duomo is often crowded with travelers climbing the dome. Skip the line to ascend passageways that generally aren’t open to the public, admire the Renaissance–era frescoes on the dome’s inner shell, and learn the history of Filippo Brunelleschi, the groundbreaking architect who crafted the Duomo.

Skip the Line Combo Tours
Want to see David, the Duomo, Pitti Palace, and also stroll around town? Opt for a Florence combo tour that includes skip-the-line entry to some of the city’s most popular sights and also a break for independent exploring or an additional activity such as a biking or walking tour.
