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.

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.
