Discover the best of Tuscany's capital city, including the David statue, on a guided Florence walking tour. This is your chance to see the lasting legacy of Dante, the Medici family, Michelangelo, Machiavelli and Leonardo Da Vinci's lasting legacy on Florence. Under the guidance of an English-speaking guide, visit to the Accademia Gallery, Florence Duomo, Piazza della Signoria and Ponte Vecchio. This 3-hour tour includes:
This Galleria dell'Accademia is home to one of the most celebrated statues in existence: the David. Michelangelo di Lodovico Buonarroti Simoni was the only artist in Florence willing to work with this block of white marble, and he turned it into a masterpiece! Right behind the Uffizi Gallery, the Accademia Gallery is the most visited museum in Florence. This means that long lines are usually par for the course. Luckily, we reserve your skip the line Accademia tickets ahead of time. This means, that the only line you will stand in is a short security line.
Short delays at the security check may occur during the busiest months, June and July. However, our team of experts works to prevent delays as much as possible.

Filled with statues, fountains and beautiful architecture, Piazza della Signoria is the historical and emotional heart of Florence.

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, as locals they know tons of spots to try out.
