Discover the best of Florence, its famous attractions and best-kept secrets. Some of the most famous names of the Renaissance era are directly connected to beautiful Florence: Dante, the Medici family, Michelangelo, Machiavelli and Leonardo Da Vinci are just some of them. Included on this guided Florence walking tour are visits to the Accademia Gallery, Santa Maria del Fiore, Piazza della Signoria and Ponte Vecchio. This three hour tour includes:
This museum is home to one of the most celebrated statues in existence, David. Michelangelo di Lodovico Buonarroti Simoni 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 usually par for the course. Luckily, we reserve your skip the line Accademia tickets ahead of time. Tickets are included in the tour price.
This iconic Duomo is Florence's most recognized landmark. Florence's cathedral towers over the city and is topped by a magnificent Renaissance dome designed by Filippo Brunelleschi. From outside the Duomo cathedral, learn about the amazing piece of architecture, and the famed bronze Baptistry Doors located just a few feet away.

Note the Loggia dei lanzi, the beautiful exterior corridors of the Uffizi Museum, as walk by and learn about the the Medici Family’s impact on the history of Florence.
If you're a fan of the Divine Poet, the next stop on the itinerary is not to be missed. See the outside of the house he grew up in, which now operates as a museum. Plus, see the little church of Santa Margherita. It's said that this is where Dante and Beatrice fell in love. Dante writes of Beatrice in his most famous work, "The Divine Comedy". Beatrice is buried in the church where a marker commemorates her life.
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 de’ Medici proclaimed that only jewelers were allowed to ply their trade on the bridge. After you visit the bridge, stroll to the Piazza San Marco and say arrivederci to your guide and group. If you've worked up an appetite, remember to ask your guide where to eat and drink in Florence, they are experts and more than happy to advise you.

Patrizia took the Florence walking tour and was an extremely knowledgeable and friendly guide. My knowledge of the Renaissance period both history and art is limited, so her ability to share key information and bring Florence to light was fabulous. Highly recommend this..more
Me and my friend had a great time on our tour! Alessandra really knows her stuff and made the tour memorable.

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
So glad I booked this tour! It was a small group and Francesca was an amazing guide! Very enthusiastic and knowledgeable! Loved the tour
