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.

Amazing tour provided by Angelo. He provided a detailed history through story telling and humor, which really convinced me I was a Florentine in the 1500's. Only wish we could have toured the rest of the city with Angelo. Highly recommend this tour.

My husband, my teenage daughter and I really enjoyed this tour. We began our visit to Florence with this half day tour. Our tour guide not only walked us about but also gave wonderful background information and engaging stories as well. We highly recommend this tour!!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2016

Of course, it was nice to skip the line and save what looked like an hour or longer wait. But the gem in this tour was our guide -- Federico. He was not just an expert but very personable and approachable. He made tour not just informative but fun. BTW, it is impossible not to be mesmerized by David. It is truly one of Western Civilization's finest masterpieces.
