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.

Our tour guide was great. This was the perfect way to visit the Academia Gallery loved Micaelangelo's David and to get an overview of Florence during our Walking Tour. About 3 hours total.

This is the second walking tour we have taken the first was in Venice and they are really worth the time and money. The local guides just give such a good overall history of the city that it gives you the opportunity to decide what is really interesting to you and so revisit or you are satisfied and check it off your list. Unfortunately, the Accademia part of the tour got cancelled due to a closure on their part but we received reimbursement for it and were able to book it for another time, so that actually worked in our favor as we spent more time in the Duomo and other parts of the city. Very worthwhile.

Excellent tour and definitely worth pre-booking for an early morning tour. Very knowledgeable guide. Remember to wear good walking shoes as you are on your feet for around 3 or more hours. Also, ensure you read the requirement to dress appropriately when visiting the Duomo, no shorts for women and shoulders must be covered.

The walk through Florence took us through all the historical highlights of the city with a comprehensive explanation of their significance. The tour of the Accademia with David as the centerpiece was astounding and extremely artistically informative. And of course a guided tour through the Duomo is the only way to go!
