Discover the best of Florence, its famous attractions and best-kept secrets. This three hour tour of Florence is led by a passionate expert guide who knows art, history and all the best stories behind the capital city of Tuscany. Some of the most famous names of the Renaissance era are directly connected to beautiful Florence. They include Dante, the Medici family, Michelangelo, Machiavelli and Leonardo Da Vinci. Included on this guided Florence walking tour is the Accademia, Santa Maria del Fiore, Piazza della Signoria and Ponte Vecchio. Plus, try some of Florence’s street food and gelato along the way.
Visit the Accademia and see the world-famous David by Michelangelo. Michelangelo was the only artist in Florence who could work with this block of marble, and he turned it into his masterpiece! The Accademia Gallery is Florence’s most visited museum right behind the Uffizi Gallery, thanks to the David statue. Because the Accademia is so popular, long lines are pare for the course.

Although you won’t enter the Palazzo Vecchio on this tour, walk through the beautiful exterior corridors of the Uffizi Museum and learn about the the Medici Family’s impact on the history of Florence.
Ponte Vecchio means “Old Bridge” in Italian. Shops have lined the famed Ponte Vecchio since the 13th century. Originally, there were many types of shops, including fishmongers, butchers and tanners. These shops caused such a great stench in the area, that in 1593 Ferdinand I proclaimed that only jewellers were allowed to set up shop on the bridge. If you want a souvenir, the bridge is a popular spot to pick up some jewelry to take back home.
Florence does not solely consist of monuments and priceless Renaissance art. The wonderful city is also home to some of the best food in Italy. There are plenty of opportunities to try Florentine street food sold by local vendors on the tour including Trippa (keep an open mind!). In addition, try some of the best gelato in Florence.

For the first part of the day, we saw the statue of David and walked through Florence/saw the Duomo with Sylvia. Sylvia persevered through a very loud and busy day in Florence (there was a race going on); I can't imagine it was easy to keep her focus through all the commotion but she did a great job and always kept a smile on her face. For the second part of the day, we did the Uffizi Gallery Renaissance tour with Angela, who was extremely passionate about the art, very funny, and overall just made it a very nice experience. The Roman Guy is a great company - their employees really care about the tours and the experience their customers have. I highly recommend them...more

Otherwise, this is still a great tour to see Florence in a short amount of time...more

Colosseum, Florence walking tour, Vatican-Early entry. Their phone agents are English speaking and willing to go above and beyond. They make traveling to a foreign country very easy!!
From the first phone call, emails, and our final tour...everything was perfect. Their guides are over the top and are full of knowledge. We had 3 different guides and all three were exceptional. They bring the history to life. You would miss a lot, if you toured these historical places without a guide. Do it right and book The Roman Guy.
I cannot imagine that there are any better guides out there. On our colosseum tour, we had a toddler, elementary kids, teens, and retirees. Our guide made sure that everyone had a good time...more
