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.

My husband and I loved this tour. It was great to be able to skip the line for the Duomo. The line at the Accademia was still a little long but it was much shorter than had we done this on our one. Our guide Tony was extremely knowledgeable and did a great job of sharing the information without being boring. It was also great to walk Florence and get comfortable with the city and where all the major sites were. Tony also gave us some good restaurant and site recommendations for the rest of our visit. This is a great way to see Florence!

This is the best way to go to avoid the really long lines to get in to the Duomo. It was also a good way to see some of the smaller tourist highlights such as the brass boar that I would have missed on my own. The trip to Academia Gallery to see the David was also a good part of the tour. I have seen copies of the statue many times from all angles, but the guide was able to point out a new perspective. And while a much smaller museum than the Ufizzi, there are some very good paintings there.

Excellent tour guide Eleeza! She expressed to us so much knowledge of Michelangelo, she wanted to us to feel the emotions of the work we were seeing and she succeeded! Her passion for Florence and its history shone through for the entire tour. Do not settle for the reproduction of David, see the real thing! Good walking tour if you dont have much time in the city, I wish we could have stayed longer. HIghly recommend!!

Our tour guide was amazing. She really had a passion for art and for Florence. We saw amazing things that I had no idea we would get to see. We all really enjoy the details she provided during the tour and would have never been able to gain such great insights had we had not done a tour and and a guide that had the passion and insights that she did.
