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.

History of the David Statue Makes it Come Alive

My husband and I are not really followers of art but the David Statue seemed like a must when in Italy and therefore we thought this tour was perfect. I cannot stress how much we enjoyed it. Michelangelo is an integral part of Italy's history so seeing the David statue really made the history come alive!

Florence Walking Tour with Statue of David

My wife and I have been to Firenze (Florence) Italy many times over the past 46 years and have never had more fun than we had with our walking tour guide visiting the Statue of David and other fabulous and priceless works of art. We highly recommend The Roman Guy Tour Company.

Excellent choice!

We did 3 Roman Guy tours: two in Rome and this one in Florence. They were all amazing! We especially loved our Florence excursion as it was a small group and very personal.

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.
