Discover the historic center of Florence on this 3 hour Florence walking tour including the imposing Duomo, elegant Piazza della Signoria, the renowned leather market, and the Accademia Gallery with Michelangelo’s David. Stroll along the timeless streets lined with superb examples of architecture from the Middle Ages and the Renaissance, admire Florence in its continued glory and discover its hidden gems, all in a single morning!*
Our Florence tour begins with Skip the Line entrance to the Accademia Gallery (your ticket is included!) where you will marvel at Michelangelo’s statues of the Slaves and his magnificent 17 foot marble masterpiece, David.
Our Florence tours visit the heart of the Renaissance Civic and Political Center, famous for its immense statues, glorious fountains, the famed Uffizi Gallery and the Medieval Palazzo Vecchio. Our path continues as we head toward the Religious Center, stopping at the Church of Orsanmichele, where you will admire ingenious statues by famed artists such as Donatello, Ghiberti and Verrocchio.
Rub the nose of the legendary boar, “il Porcellino” to ensure a return to Florence and visit Piazza della Repubblica, once the Ancient Forum, now a popular meeting place for famous writers, artists and locals. Gaze at the Baptistry Doors by Ghiberti, coined the “Gates of Paradise” by Michelangelo. Enter the Duomo, the astounding Florence Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore, from where Brunelleschi’s dome dominates the skyline and never ceases to impress.

Florence Full Day Tour - 09:00 AM
Includes everything you love about our Best of Florence Tour (described above) plus a two hour guided tour of the Uffizi Gallery.
Please note that because of religious festivities and on Sundays, access to the Duomo is restricted. Also in the afternoon the Duomo is always closed, in which case a detailed tour will be given from outside. Also on the first Sunday of every month, due to Accademia Gallery’s admission policies, we may not be granted admittance. If this happens we will offer an extended walking tour of the city. Due to increased security measures at many attractions some lines may form on tours with 'Skip the Line' access.
Please arrive 15 minutes before the start time of the tour.
Changes made to bookings within the 72 hour window will be subject to rebooking fees to cover the cost of tickets purchased, transport, guide rescheduling, headsets and administration.
We strongly advise against arriving at the meeting point without a booking as we cannot guarantee that there will be space left on the tour. Our guides are unable to accept payment for tours so any bookings made on the spot will still need to be processed over the phone with payment by credit card.
