Experience the best sightseeing on a 6.5 hour Florence day tour. Accompanied by a passionate English-speaking guide with expertise in art history, Italian history and Florentine culture, explore the capital city of Tuscany. Florence is associated with the most famous names of the Renaissance including Dante, the Medici family, Michelangelo, Machiavelli and Leonardo Da Vinci. This Florence day tour visits the Accademia Gallery, Michelangelo’s Statue of David, Palazzo Vecchio, the Duomo of Florence, the Uffizi Gallery, the Bronze Boar, Ponte Vecchio and more. We would never want you to go hungry in Italy, so we also scheduled a lunch break.
The Accademia is home to the world-famous David by Michelangelo. Originally commissioned by the Opera del Duomo for the Cathedral of Florence, David is not only the most famous statue in Florence, and perhaps in the world. Fourteen feet tall, the marble statue depicts the biblical hero in the nude. The Accademia is the second most popular museum in the city (behind the Uffizi). This means long lines. If you reserve this small group tour of Florence, we book your skip the line Accademia tickets ahead of time. There’s no need to stand in line, go right into the museum with your expert guide.
Florence's colorful Duomo is the city's most iconic landmark. The Duomo, also known as Santa Maria Del Fiore, features a magnificent Renaissance dome designed by Filippo Brunelleschi. From outside the Duomo cathedral, learn about this amazing piece of architecture, as well as see the famed bronze Baptistry Doors. Praised by generations of artists and art historians, the famed doors depict stunning scenes from the Old Testament.
Shops have lined the famed Ponte Vecchio bridge since the 13th century. Originally, they included butchers, fishmongers and tanners. You can imagine how bad the area stank! That’s why in 1593, the Holy Roman Emperor Ferdinand I proclaimed that only jewellers were allowed to sell their wares on the bridge. To this day, the bridge still glitters with silver and gold jewelry crafted by local Italian artisans. Ponte Vecchio is one of the best things to see in Florence.
Besides monuments and awe-inspiring Renaissance art, Florence is also home to some of the best food in Italy. On this Florence day tour, try Trippa, a typical Florentine dish prepared by street food vendors. Plus, try some of the best gelato in Florence. At this point in the day, enjoy some free time to eat lunch. Ask your guide where the best place to eat is for a delicious Florentine lunch. We recommend you pick up lunch to go, find a spot in one of the many nearby squares and tuck into a local favorite (like a porchetta panino) as you people watch.
Filled with statues, fountains and beautiful architecture, the Piazza della Signoria is the historical and emotional heart of Florence. The most prominent feature of the piazza is the Palazzo Vecchio, the former home of the Medici family and the administrative center of the Florentine Republic. Learn about the incredible influence the Medicis wielded, and their impact on the history of Florence.
The Uffizi is filled with artwork from celebrated Italian Renaissance artists. A must-see attraction for anyone visiting Florence, the Uffizi Gallery welcomes over a million visitors every year. This means that during the high season, wait times sometimes last up to five hours! You’re in luck though, because this Florence day tour includes skip the line Uffizi tickets. This means you get to go straight inside the museum and enjoy the art. Highlights of the Uffizi include the following masterpieces.
