Description

Get the fast track to Florence's most important sights as you visit the exterior of the imposing Duomo and skip the line to enter to the elegant Uffizi Square and the Accademia Gallery, which houses Michelangelo's David. Then, stroll the streets of the historic city centre on a tour of Florence that unveils the timeless city's gems.

Meet your guide in San Marco Square and set off to see one of the greatest works of art in Florence (and the world), Michelangelo’s David at the Accademia. Since your guide arranges a reserved time slot for you and your group, you can breeze past the entry lines and make your way right to the masterpiece. Listen as your expert host shares the fascinating techniques and creative vision that went into sculpting this monument of the Renaissance.

After seeing a sculptural masterwork, your next stop is outside Florence Cathedral (Il Duomo) and the architectural wonder of Brunelleschi’s Dome. The dome’s namesake built first-of-their kind inventions to hoist stones to create this 376-foot-tall (114.5-m) marvel of engineering. Ask your guide any questions you may have about the years of work that went into designing, building, and finally finishing this project that began in 1296 and ended in 1420. To close out your tour, wander the picture-perfect streets of Florence, taking in iconic sights like the marvellous Ponte Vecchio bridge and the sculptures of the Uffizi Courtyard.

Our tour guide, Vanessa, was very knowledgeable and engaging. She certainly kept our attention and kept the group moving as well as allowing us time to admire the paintings and sculptures.
