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.

Angelo was amazing. I've seen David before but never with my heart. Angelo was able to create an experience that allowed you to see David as meant to be seen. Very knowledgeable, funny and entertaining.

Staff were early and helpful, with FM transmitter so you could hear everything. I was able to upgrade to the Duomo cupola climb on the spot. I would not do Florence without Skip the Line. Also learned a lot I wouldn't have been able to get from the three travel ebooks I was reading!

Excellent tour-guide. She had worked at the Accademia and knew it intimately. Great energy. Walk around Florence was great too. Easy to locate and good time to walk starting at 4:30

It was worth it to see David and the tour guide gave just enough information and not too much. Didn't get to climb the Duomo which was a bit of a let-down but overall the pace of the walk was very easy and manageable
