What You Can Expect

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

Accademia Gallery

Begin your walking tour with skip-the-line entrance inside the Accademia Gallery, home to Michelangelo’s David. Marvel at the lifelike contours of the 17-foot sculpture and see why this creation has become of the most iconic in the world.

Afterward, continue on a 3-hour walking tour of the city. Your guide will point out architecture from the Middle Ages and Renaissance, as well as provide historical commentary and local lore about the sites that you pass.

See the Florence Duomo, peering up at Brunelleschi’s Dome, the most famous structure in the Florentine skyline. Enter inside the impressive Cathedral to explore (entry may be restricted on Sundays and religious holidays) before admiring Giotto’s Bell Tower and the Baptistery.

Delve deeper into Florence’s rich history with a visit to the medieval Palazzo Vecchio and the Church of Orsanmichele to witness statues by famed artists such as Donatello, Ghiberti and Verrocchio. You'll also pass the grand exterior of the Uffizi Gallery, filled with Renaissance masterpieces from Botticelli, da Vinci and other greats.

Visit the former Ancient Forum, now Piazza della Repubblica. Don't forget to rub the nose of the legendary boar statute, il Porcellino, promising your return to Florence! Your tour will conclude in Lungarno, facing the historic Ponte Vecchio bridge.

Best tour Guide ever. Paul Costa I hope the last name is correct, was the best guide I've ever had. He was educational, entertaining, knowledgeable, funny, engaging. My daughter and I thoroughly enjoyed the tour. It was the first of our Italian tours and Paul set the bar very high! In fact, no other tour came close.

We enjoyed the 3.5 hour walkabout Florence tour which allowed us to tour many of the city landmarks and receive a history lesson along the way. Included was a skip the line ticket for the Accademia Galleria. Downtown Florence was crowded but our very capable and knowledgeable guide kept the group together and we all had audio sets with ear buds to make hearing our guide easier. It is definitely worth paying for the Skip the Line tickets and for a guided tour unless you already are an expert in the history and art of Florence. Seeing the David with my own eyes was absolutely amazing.

The tour guide was very friendly and knowledgeable. Take the early tour and show up early so your group can get into the museum before the crowds.
