COMPARE ALL FLORENCE TOURS

Visit the Accademia Gallery

The Accademia Gallery is home to one of the most celebrated statues in existence: the David. Michelangelo was the only artist in Florence willing to work with this block of white marble, and he turned it into a masterpiece: Biblical hero David, known for his battle with Goliath. 

Long lines are usually par for the course at this popular Florence museum. Luckily, our guided tours 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.

The Duomo of Florence - Exterior

This iconic Duomo is Florence's most recognized landmark, located in the heart of Florence's historical center. Florence's cathedral towers over the city, the cathedral is topped by a magnificent Renaissance dome designed by Filippo Brunelleschi. From outside the Duomo cathedral, learn about the amazing piece of architecture, and get a look at the famed bronze Baptistry Doors.

Coffee Break

After walking around Florence for a while, it's time to re-energize with some caffeine. We will stop at a local coffee shop for some rejuvenating espresso of cappuccino. Depending on the time of your tour, you can also pick up some delicious gelato.

Piazza della Signoria, Florence

Filled with statues, fountains and beautiful architecture, Piazza della Signoria is the historical and emotional heart of Florence. The most prominent feature of the piazza is Florence’s town hall, the Palazzo Vecchio. Note the Loggia dei Lanzi and the the beautiful exterior corridors of the Uffizi Museum as you learn about the Medici Family’s impact on the history of Florence.

Dante's District and Church

If you're a fan of the Divine Comedy, 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.

Ponte Vecchio

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.

Florence walking tour

Excellent walking tour of Florence. Our guide Chiara met us in Rome at the train station, helped us get our tickets and rode on the train with us to Florence. When we arrived in Florence we met another guide who took us on a walking tour which included the Academia and the David. She then handed us back to Chiara who took us to a fun lunch and a great Gelato place. She then led us back to the train station where we rode back to Rome with her. Thanks Roman Guy tour, we will definitely book another tour next year! Chiara was fun, knowledgeable and energetic!

A Terrific Tour

Our walking tour was in Florence. We toured the David along with other sites. Marco was AMAZING! Very informative and knowledgeable about the David and other parts of our tour. His passion as he described our sits actually brought you back in time and you could feel the moment. I will book withThe Roman Guy again!

Frequently Asked Questions

Where to meet?

At the big statue in San Marco Square. A representative will be there holding a sign with our company name on it.

What to bring?

Bring a little cash with you, for gelato and trippa (if you dare!). Since this is a walking tour, you'll need comfortable shoes. Avoid bringing large bags, both the Uffizi and Accademia require you to check them.

Q: Do we get to go inside the Duomo?

 

A: This tour includes a visit to the outside of the Cathedral and a chance to see the Baptistry Doors. It does not go inside. We want to make sure we cover as many sights as possible in a day and consider the Duomo to be far more magnificent from the outside. If you wish to climb the dome, we do offer a Florence Highlights Tour that proved tickets to do so.

 

Q: What should I bring with me? 

 

A: Bring a little cash with you, just in case you want to stop for gelato (not included in the tour price). Since this is a walking tour, you'll need comfortable shoes. Avoid bringing large bags, the Accademia requires you to check them.
