Michelangelo's David

The most famous statue in Florence, and probably the world, Michelangelo's David stands seventeen feet tall inside the Accademia Gallery. Carved between 1501 and 1504, this masterpiece depicts the Biblical hero David in the nude. Even more incredible, Michelangelo was only 26 years old when he transformed a white slab of marble into the exquisite work of art known around the world today.

 

Behind the Uffizi Gallery, the Accademia Gallery is the second most popular museum in Florence. Unfortunately, this translates into long lines. Not for you though! Booked ahead of time, this Florence in a day tour includes skip the line Accademia tickets. As an accredited tour operator, we don't have to wait in a long ticket line. After the quick security line, we're in!

 

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.

 

Exterior of the Florence Duomo

A Renaissance dome designed by Filippo Brunelleschi, the Florence Duomo is an iconic landmark. From outside, admire the impressive cathedral and get a glimpse of the famed bronze Baptistry Doors. Praised by generations of artists and art historians, these doors depict Old Testament stories.

 

The Old Bridge - Ponte Vecchio

Ever since the 13th century, the Ponte Vecchio bridge has been home to built-in shops. Built the "Old Bridge",  the Vasari Corridor connects the Palazzo Vecchio with the Palazzo Pitti crosses the bridge. In this elevated corridor, the Medici Family felt secure as they moved between their house and the palace. With this edition, the butchers who sold their meat on the bridge were soon banished and in their place came the goldsmiths and silversmiths. To this day, you can still buy jewelry on the bridge.

 

After you've finished your adventure in Florence, it’s time to say arrivederci to your guide and fellow travelers. Your attendant will lead the group back to the train station and you'll return to Rome via high-speed rail.

Amazing day trip to see Michaelangelo's David!

This was a great way to spend one of my days in Italy! I knew I wanted to see Florence (I love the history and the art) and this trip made it so simple. The Roman Guy dealt with the tickets and we had someone to guide us on the train as well as around Florence. Seeing the David was so great! I can't wait to go back and see more of Florence .

Fantastic day trip to Florence from Rome

Well organized; very knowledgeable and pleasant tour guide in Florence (Francesca). Memorable experience for me and my daughter. Our coordinator/escort from Rome to Florence and back was Olga. She was very nice and helpful as well.

So easy to get to Florence!

I really did not want to have to deal with getting from Rome to Florence on my own, so this tour was great! We saw the city's main higlights and we LOVED the Uffizi.
