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.

Great tour. Our guide was very knowledgeable and pretty funny too. Must see the Duomo and Accademia Gallery. The Guide was really great in the Accademia I thought. After the tour, do the Dome of Duomo separate pass sold nearby - absolutely worth the 465 steps. When we entered there weren't any lines and quite a few tour groups, so you're not really alone. However, when we left Accademia - there was a huge line. That's when I knew the early access was certainly worth it.
