Discover the magic of Florence in a single day on our Best of Florence and Uffizi Gallery Tour, visiting all of the famous sights and skipping the long lines - from the marvel of David at the Accademia to Botticelli’s masterpieces in the Uffizi, the complex beauty of the Duomo to architectural gems hidden in Florence's city center.
Your morning begins with the Best of Florence tour – a comprehensive walking tour visiting the most famous sights in Florence’s city center such as the “Porcellino”, Ponte Vecchio and the Leather Market – including a guided visit inside the imposing Duomo. You’ll enjoy our Skip the Line entrance to the Accademia Gallery, where Michelangelo’s unfinished statues “the Slaves” and his magnificent 17 foot marble masterpiece, David await us.
After a break in which you will be free to relax and enjoy lunch at a restaurant of your choosing or a place your guide would be happy to recommend, your afternoon Skip the Line tour at the Uffizi Gallery begins.
Here you’ll have the chance to behold in person the immediately recognizable works of Botticelli -- “Birth of Venus” and “Primavera”. The Uffizi contains signature works of the Italian masters, including Michelangelo and Da Vinci. Listen as your expert English speaking guide recounts fascinating stories about the lives of the artists, celebrated architects, and wealthy patrons that contributed to the Gallery. This very special visit concludes atop the Uffizi Gallery with a lovely view of Florence's city center from the rooftop terrace.

While we await final confirmation of the changes from the museum, we promise to take you through the finest selection of works as permitted by time. Also, on Sundays and during religious festivities visits inside the Duomo may be restricted. At night, the Duomo is always closed, in which case a detailed tour will be given from outside.
