Return Details

Returns to original departure point
Start the day with skip-the-line access to the Accademia Gallery, home to Michelangelo’s 'David.' Nothing prepares you for the scale of this sculptural masterpiece. Your guide helps you appreciate the artistry from every angle, including the techniques Michelangelo used to make marble look smooth as butter.

The highlight of the city walking tour is the Florence Cathedral, whose incredible red dome is the city’s crown jewel. The dome was not without challenges for architect Filippo Brunelleschi, as your guide explains while you view the masterpiece from outside. Entrance to the Duomo is always free, so you can come back at any time to explore the cathedral in more depth, equipped with an abundance of knowledge shared by your expert, local guide.

Your tour continues through the historic center of Florence, taking in the Piazza Signoria, where 'David' once stood.

Skip the line once more at the Uffizi Gallery. Your guide leads you on a carefully planned route through this immense gallery, wasting no time in showcasing works by Da Vinci, Botticelli, and Titian. Don’t forget to rub the nose of 'Il Porcellino,' Pietro Tacca’s Baroque bronze boar sculpture, to bring the rest of your vacation good luck.

Whether you’re only in Florence for a day or settling in for a longer stay, this is the perfect introduction to a city where beauty awaits around every corner.

Great introduction to astounding museums
Scott_G
, Mar 2020
Even in low season and with the coronavirus concerns keeping crowds lower than normal, I highly recommend the skip-the-line-tours. This was a terrific introduction to two of the most important museums in Italy. Our guide, Angelo Alterio, was splendid. He was extremely knowledgeable, enthusiastic, attentive and highly personable. I highly recommend the tour and Angelo.

Florence with Marilena

Marilena was our guide and we appreciated her informative and fascinating narrative. She helped us see differences in the arts depending on the time frame and truly helped us appreciate the wonderful art we were seeing. On the way to Uffizi, we stopped at the Medici home and admired the villa. She told us that a 12 year old Michelangelo was “discovered” and brought to live here for a few years! I would highly recommend her tour!
